It's okay
Really not quite sure what to make of this place! The positives are that the staff were so friendly, really lovely people, and the art made of ice was incredibly well done, the level of detail was amazing. On the other hand, its literally a walk in freezer like the one that we used at a bakery I worked at some years ago, but on a bigger scale. Its very expensive for what it is, and the drinks are so tiny! Overall it was a fine half an hour but wouldn't recommend or do it again!

Booked a visit here as part of our wedding holiday in Iceland and we were not disappointed! We were so well looked after by the team who made sure we were wrapped up warm in amazing coats and served us drinks poured in glasses made of ice! Well worth a visit for the experience alone. The Ice sculptures inside were really well done and the manager took time to talk to us about how they were created.

Great place, you need to be prepared to enter; because it's pretty cold inside. The employers in this place are the best; great attention, really friendly and cheerful. Waiting to eneter in this place again.

Saw this place walking by while in Reykjavik. Decided to take a chance and was not disappointed. Totally reasonably priced for the comped drinks and the cool ambiance. We had a great time at the magic ice bar tonight. Ulfar was the best! Will definitely go back the next time we are in Reykjavik!

Expect incredible hand sculpted ice works and the most incredible host! Kevin is knowledgeable, suuuuuper friendly and so helpful with local and regional information. The welcome drink is amazing, I had to have 3! Drinks are very affordable for the area and there is a wide selection available in the ice bar itself. Would recommend for all ages, suitable for kids, adults even those young at heart.

Worst tourist trap ever?
Jul 2021
I decided to check out the Magic Ice bar with my husband after repeatedly being asked by visitors where the place is (I live in Reykjavík). We were welcomed by a friendly guy who found coats and gloves for us to wear before entering the ice bar. When inside we were stunned to see how sad looking and tired it was. The welcome cocktail was served in a tiny ice glass (the glass was actually the coolest thing this bar has to offer) and it was a mixture of a blue liquid mixed with "LUV" which is a canned ready made cocktail you can buy in stores around here. The bartender was jolly and nice but the cocktail was simply a joke. In fact, the whole place is just like a joke. It´s one of the worst tourist traps I´ve come across in my whole life! It was so bad that we had a really good laugh there, told everyone about how awful it was and now all our friends want to go and check it out! :D
