Open since november 2007. Icebarcelona has become a must see in the Condal City.

A unique place at a temperature of -5ºC (20ºF), designed by internationally renowned artists. The average visit lasts 45 minutes. While you are shivering with fun, you can relax on the terrace, perfect for an al fresco cocktail right in front of the Mediterranean sea.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.

    Keep your Cool in Barcelona!
    And now for Something Completely Different. 21 degrees outside, we put on our thermal coats ( provided), and plunge into the -8 degree Icebarcelona. We were ‘warmly’ welcomed by Liv, who gave us our instructions and took our order for the first drink which was in our package. Naturally the drinks are ice cold, as was the bar. Drinking from glasses made from ice, in the bar made from ice, with sculptures made of ice, this was a most novel experience. It is right on the beach which makes it doubly entertaining. Highly Recommended. Thank you Liv. When we are back in Barcelona we will be sure to revisit!

    The best bar in Barcelona
    Kalico and Lioba made our experience at the ice bar so great and memorable. They were kind, attentive, and sweet. We got the romantic package and it was phenomenal. They took pics of us and provided us w Cava and chocolates!

    You won’t forget this-Ever!
    Firstly everyone was so friendly and helpful. I booked this for my son’s 12th birthday as a treat. They made him just Apple juice. You are given coats and gloves and then you enter. There’s music and lights and everything is made of ice, even the glasses. They played happy birthday for my son. 5 stars isn’t enough

    Small Bar Big Price
    This was quite an underwhelming experience. Bar outside was nice enough. Ice Bar situated behind a big door, we were dressed in big jackets and gloves went inside to find a quite small room with 4 statues. We waited 10 minutes before we had to go and ask the staff for a drink. Not what I expected given the amount of money they charge. I won't be going back.

Must share with you "experience" we had at Ace Bar in Barcelona:
We booked in advance - such as seeking the site.
According to what is described on their website, and - according to the pictures, we were really expecting to have lots of fun.
We took a cab specifically, we arrived on time. It turns out that was not needed to book ... No one checked the order.
And it was ...
Horror!!!
There is no connection between the pictures on the web site and the place itself.
The place is small and boring!
They give drinks - just terrible ... No one (including other arrived) could not drink it.
Although the music was nice, but the place is so small, just boring!
And they are not ashamed to take on this dull experience a huge amount of 15 euros!
It was one of the most disappointing experiences I have ever - ever trip.
We really, really do not recommend this place to reach, despite their seductive website.

We visited Barcelona at beginning of June. We saw this bar advertised in a discount voucher book so decided to give it a go. We caught the number 59 bus from Las Ramblas and got off at the golden fish statue. We asked around to find the bar and found it with help on the beach front. The staff were very friendly, gave us a padded silver coat and gloves each then let us in to the -15 degree room. Brrggghhhh it was cold and very creative. There were statues made of ice - Buddha, polar bear, sofa and bar etc everything was ice except the ceiling and floor. In the entry fee of 15 euros each you get music and a drink of your choice from a menu, which is served to you in a ice glass.
We stayed in the for about 20 mins then the novelty wore off and the cold kicked in.

Ensure you wear suitable trousers and foot wear as it is sooo cold.

Great experience but once you have done it you've done it.

I came to your Ice Bar last week when I was in Barcelona, please could I give you my honest opinion about your bar.

We have had many friends attend different Ice Bars in various locations of the world same as ourselves and when we have been they have had a fantastic atmosphere busy with polite bar staff.

We expected to have the same when we attended yours however we were thoroughly disappointed we paid the 15 euros required.

Only to find the Ice Bar completely empty with no atmosphere or even guests, we had to wait 15 minutes for our FREE watered down cocktail to be served no bar staff available on the evening.

We actually found the venue and the bar to be very boring for soemthing that is meant to be unique I think you really need to work on the atmosphere and your customer service.

I would like to make a suggestions when it is no peak season at the resort that slashing the price of entry and cocktail deals would be a solution to actually having an empty bar for the evening.

It was also my partners Birthday on the night and he was disappointed, I found your venue to be a waste of money

Man handing out coats and gloves was very grunty! Seriously lacked any communication skills... think he was just being rude and grumpy. Paid 17.50 euros each for one crap cocktail. They take your money and shove you in the freezer! I did the ice bar in Amsterdam in October and it was so so so much better.

we didnt book but we had a discount voucher from our hotel. Staff were friendly and fun. Once inside we got a free cocktail in ice glass, the whole theme was 80s - the ice sculptures and the music - was alot of fun, would have been nice if there was a photographer there ? stopped for a drink in the bar afterwards to warm up :-)

Just could have done with being a bit bigger, as when there was 8 people inside not everyone could sit down! But the staff were lovely, and they allowed us in before our time slot, we stayed in there for about 20-30 minutes although the ticket does say up to 45 minutes it was just a bit cold for us after a while! Amazing to walk out and see the beach straight away!
