Made of crystal clear ice from the Torne river in Sweden maintained at minus 5 degrees all year round, Icebar is the UK’s 'coolest' bar.
Everything in the bar is made from ice including the walls, tables, chairs and even the glasses that cocktails are served in. It's re-designed every six months with a completely new theme.

My friend was visiting London and she wanted to go to the Icebar so I went along. The first thing I would recommend is wearing decent footwear and a large coat!!! Flats will not do the job, and your shoes will stick to the ground making it difficult to walk around!
The bar itself is actually quite small, although that's quite alright considering that it's completely made out of ice. You get...more
Cool concept, though not really a place you'd return to multiple times. More of a one time experience.
Temperature was meant to be -5 degrees Celsius, but felt colder than that. Definitely true to the igloo theme and ambience, but I wish they had more of an entertainment or distraction apart from just blocks of ice.
I really enjoyed my drink. It was served in an ice cube as well which was...more
