Owner description: The Chillout Ice Lounge, created by Sharaf Hospitality, is the first ice lounge in the Middle East, launched in 2007, the ice lounge had a major refurbishment in July 2014. The Middle East's first sub-zero lounge is decorated with ice sculptures, unique seating and illuminated interiors. All are maintained within a -6 degree Celsius environment, providing an icy escape that makes for a memorable chill out experience. There are hot drink options to help guests banish the icy chill and a variety of classic hot meals on offer. Once visitors arrive they are given thermal clothing to keep themselves warm in the minus six degrees. This comprises of a hooded parka (a heavy jacket), woollen gloves, shoes and socks, if required. Visitors are advised to spend a few minutes in the 'buffer zone' area to get acclimatized. The temperature in the buffer zone is set at 5 degrees Celsius, which gives the body time to adjust to the low temperature in the main Chillout Ice Lounge. The Chillout Ice Lounge combines the novelty of subzero temperatures with a unique interior design. It is a technological innovation in refrigeration, lighting, architecture & sculptured ice. The diffused lighting changes its colours at certain intervals and it filters through crystal clear blocks of ice, filling them with low-lux hues of varying patterns, making the moment freeze in its ambience. All these elements have been intelligently composed to create one of the best ice lounges in the world. The lounge serves hot soups, sandwiches, juices, hot chocolates, coffee, tea and a variety of deserts, mock-tails and confectionary, making it the first of its kind in the world to serve hot food & beverages. Chillout Ice Lounge is located at the ground level, Times Square Center, on the Sheikh Zayed Road -Dubai. Why not visit us for a memorable experience with friends and family. We are available for birthday parties, event, film shoots and private hire.

The restaurant presents an unexpected blood-chilling spot in the middle of the boiling weather of Dubai! As the name suggests, the restaurant presents a unique Scandinavian-type ambiance, where you will find virtually everything made up of ice. The utensils, furniture, interior, famous iconic buildings of Dubai , all carved with ice. The unique restaurant is located in the Time Square Mall.


The temperature maintained inside the restaurant is -6 C, and the protective suiting are available to visitors upon the payment of the entry fees of AED 60. Though the entry fees seems to be a bit on the higher side, but it is worth visiting the place only for a roam around. Having food is upon your choice, I will not recommend eating food there because I don't have a very pleasant experience of eating at chillout. Paying for the food is in addition to the entry fees, but the price of the food does not justify the value.

I strongly recommend a visit to "Chillout" and recommend to Chill Out!

A unique experience, albeit in Ramadan when quiet. Entry fee is steep at DHS60 per person, but they cloth you in a thick coat with boots and gloves and offer you a complimentary drink in an ice glass. Careful not to get your lips stuck to it though!. No alcohol served here. The chairs, tables and bar are all in ice, as are the sculptures of Dubai skyline and the art on the wall. Kept at -6 degrees, it is not a place to stay for a full evening as the cold gets to you; half an hour at most. The ice is remodeled every 3 months, but worth the experience, with the changing lights if you cannot get to the ALTA IGLOO HOTEL in Norway! If you cannot afford the entry fee, you can see it from outside in the Times Square Mall.
