Owner description: Open since november 2007. Icebarcelona has become a must see in the Condal City. Frequented as much by locals as by tourists, the icebar is a perfect place to enjoy an original and very amusing experience. The first ice bar at the beach in the world. A unique place at a temperature of -5ºC (20ºF), designed by internationally renowned artists. The average visit lasts 45 minutes. While you are shivering with fun, you can relax on the terrace, perfect for an al fresco cocktail right in front of the Mediterranean sea.

“Not bad but only once”
Reviewed 8 February 2014 via mobile

We went to the ice bar as it was a little different, the sculptures were good and it was noval having a cocktail served in an glass made of ice. Having said that it was a little out the way with little signage. It was also a little small. Glad we went but wouldn't go again.

“Brrrrrrrilliant”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

We had a voucher for this and decided it was a must because a very different experience.
Down on the beach front you go into a very cool looking bar that plays some great funky beats (I'm sure it's amazing in the summer). You can choose to go in the ice bar or just have a drink looking out to the sea. We decided to venture in so off we went where we paid and got given a big thermal coat and some gloves and then entered the ice bar.
When you go in, there are some ice sculptures a sofa and bar all made out of ice. Beautifully done too. Out if the €15 entry you also get a drink at the bar. We had a beer although I wish i had a cocktail so got more for your money (and it would have come in an ice cup). You can't stay in there for long because the -15 temp is a bit hard to take after 10 mins so we drunk up pretty quickly and left. It was definitely an experience but you only need to do it once and is quite expensive for what it is but for a one time only thing I would recommend it. Where else would you see an ice bar on the beach?!

“Fun :)”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

We went on a Friday night and it wasn't packed full of people like the London ice bar was which was good. 15 euros each which included a drink as well, bit expensive but the experience is worth it :)
