The Icebar was really great. Demi on the door was very friendly and welcoming and Myron our 'Captain' was great fun. He was very energetic and really got everyone involved. It's a cool experience (pun intended) and I would suggest anyone in Amsterdam to give it a visit.

Dear wildrose306, We appreciate your positive words. It does get pretty cold at the Ice Bar, hence, the delicious drinks to keep you warm... we hope you enjoyed our exclusive selection of flavored vodkas and that you took some nice photos to bring back home. Could we have done anything extra to get a 5-star review? We hope you enjoy... More

Dear Reuterconny, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. It is a different way to go for a drink (or a few) in Amsterdam! Some of the drinks served in the Icebar are exclusive, you cannot find them anywhere else in the Netherlands! Have a nice day! More

The icebar isn't that special and you seem to freeze way before the end of your tour (an hour) , but with the right guide you actually enjoy your time there. We had Myron and he gave us a really great time!

This is the sort of thing I was really excited to do on my short stay in Amsterdam and yeah it was alright but a bit of a waste of time really. It was tiny, there was no music or anything and apart from the ice on the walls and a polar bear sculpture it was just like being in... More

Dear Abbey P, Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear you were disappointed. It is very odd to read there was no music playing, as we always have music on. Maybe during your visit, there was a problem with the system. We hope you at least enjoyed the drinks and were able to take some nice... More

The Ice bar part of the bar is exactly as advertised - icy! It was a lot of fun in the ice bar, but we couldn't stay there for very long as -9.5C and clothes for a warm spring day don't mix too well (even with the thermal jacket!). The front bar was nice, if a bit small for the... More

The bar staff are friendly and speaks English well. Have been to several Countries in Europe, and I must say that I have encountered rude service personnel. I came with a couple of friends and pre purchased our tickets in a tourist info center (where you can also buy tram and train tickets, other attraction tickets). Since our tickets are... More

Not sure what we expected but it was a bit of a let down to be completely honest! It was a small bar , made from ice... sculptures were good, staff were friendly. But is literally what it says on the tin... Ice Bar 😊
