The ultimate arctic experience and at minus 10 degrees IceBar Melbourne is definitely the coolest place in town and the only venue of its kind in Australia. The IceBar is made from over 30 tonnes of sculpted ice where the walls, tables, chairs and even the bar is made of ice! The current theme at IceBar Melbourne is ‘creatures and monsters’ and features a 3 tonne ice dragon that welcomes you upon entry into the ice interior. During your stay at the IceBar you are provided with a snow cape and gloves to keep you as snug as a bug in a rug and it’s the most fun you can have with (lots of) clothes on! It can take over 40 man-hours to cut and sculpt just one figure within the IceBar and it took just on 6 months to freeze enough ice for the creation of this amazing venue. The IceBar isn’t just for grown-ups; kids are welcome every day from 10am to 7pm making it a unique outing for the whole family to enjoy. While adults are offered a selection of icy cocktails, kids can enjoy fruity drinks whilst being provided with customised capes and gloves. IceBar Melbourne will turn an experience from memorable into unforgettable, so be sure to add a visit to your ‘to see list’ whilst in Melbourne.

Expensive entry to a place that could have great potential but doesn't! Room/bar tiny about the size of a bedroom. beautiful ice sculptures which you are not allowed to touch. The staff are friendly but hover over you inside to the point of being uncomfortable!....More

Hi Nadia, I'm very sorry to hear that you think your IceBar experience deserved a 1 star review. I feel it a shame that you had to exaggerate certain aspects of your review in an attempt to discourage others from coming. First of all, you...More

I’d always wanted to go to an ice bar so my partner and I gave it a go. Much smaller than expected and the glasses were plastic! Warm gear was clean and comfortable but it was still pretty cold (obviously not complaining about that!) Staff...More

This is something that everyone should visit - even if it is only for 20 minutes. They supply you with gloves and a jacket to keep warm. Looking at the Ice sculptures is fascinating. Would definitely recommend to visit.

We went on a Monday night and were the only ones in the whole bar but I loved it, great experience. Roman was very friendly, made a great cocktail. It was very small but I thought it was great. Would definitely recommend!

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its
