“Worth the trip”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

I have never been to an ice bar before. Really neat and you can bring children as there is a ice slide inside and they get to wear heavy winter coats and gloves when it's 90 degrees out. The sculptures inside are wonderful and the complimentary shot of rum is really good as it is ice cold. Take your time going through and definately get the coat and gloves as some people turn it down and they leave after a couple minutes as it is 22 degrees in there. really neat especially on a hot day..

“wasted my time”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

Made a special trip to visit the Magic Ice bar. I was there on a Friday around 4:15. The sign on back said open to 8 PM on Friday's and to 5 other days. Got to the front down to find the gate locked, so could not even get to the door. Don't waste your time going there for nothing.

“cool magic ice”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

Ice oasis in the middle of the hot St. Thomas streets. The sculptures and lighting are intriguing, the slide is fun even if a bit short and the ice bar shots are to be experienced. Kids can get an orange juice instead and still feel included. A bit pricey but the electric required to maintain this place must be astronomical, and service was friendly and helpful. If you don't come from a cold climate, take the shin guards, gloves, etc. as you will cool down fast. It's fun and makes you feel great on a hot day.

“A Cool experience”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

My husband and I were on a cruise with another couple and while walking through all of the shops we stumbled across Magic Ice. I've always wanted to go to an ice bar so this was perfect! We had a great time! Yes, it was cold, but guess what?! You're in an ice bar! The sculptures were very cool(pun intended ;D) and the bartender (James) was awesome and super friendly. We had a great time with him. We even ordered more drinks! They weren't over priced either. We were in there for a little over an hour. It would have been longer if I wasn't wearing sandals. We took lots of pictures and if were are ever back on the island we'll be stopping here for sure!

“Meh...”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Went in hopeful. It was expensive and the ice sculptures were pretty melty. The "free" shot of liqueur and shot glass was fine but the bartender was a bit unfriendly. The slide is very short! I'd do something else
