Nothing works up a thirst quite like an Antarctic winter deep in the heart...

Nothing works up a thirst quite like an Antarctic winter deep in the heart of Melbourne. Enjoy a drink surrounded by more than 30 tons of carved ice. Everything within the Ice Lounge is made of ice - the table, chairs and even the glass you drink from! Guests are provided with snow capes, gloves and woolen boots so they are kept warm and comfortable within Melbourne's coolest space. Stunning Arctic-themed cocktails are served in glasses made entirely from ice, while guests enjoy cool music and warm service in an environment that is truly unique. After an unforgettable Ice Lounge experience, head into the inviting warmth of the Ski Lodge bar.

I went here on the weekend with my partner and friends and we all had an awesome experience. The ice sculptures where amazing! The cocktails where amazing also and we loved the lovey lady working there on Saturday night. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a fun, different night out.

The sculptures were amazing and you get a cocktail with your entry which was delicious! I loved that you could go in and out as many times as you want, makes it so worth the money!!

Do not even consider going here! What a waste of money, $35 to stand in a container, and $12 if you wanted a photo! Tiny space and nowhere to sit, sculptures were cool though in fairness ,

The first thing that needs to be said is that this has moved from Southgate to Fitzroy district and is not easy to find. We eventually found this so called ice bar to pay our entrance fees and opted for the package that gave you a drink on entry and a cocktail, we did not opt for the photo package... More

We had gone a couple of times when this was at Southgate and loved it. We went on the weekend to its new location in Fitzroy and were really disappointed. It is much smaller and not worth the huge entry costs. Will definitely not be returning.

A fun novelty to do in Melbourne but probably not worth doing more than once. You get all rugged up in gear they provide and in you go to the rather small bar area, the ice carvings are great and the selfie cameras are fun but come at a price

The whole concept is for visitors to experience the unique offering of sipping beverage in this ice cold room with ice sculptures environment. Not a bad way to enjoy and have fun with friends or family.
