Attraction details
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.

“Great for a novelty evening!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

We went to ice bar at 8pm for the start of our first evening out in Barcelona. I booked it as part of my sister's hen do and it was great. We arrived and put on our jackets and gloves and went in to the Ice room to get a free cocktail. This was served in ice glasses. We stayed in there for about half an hour and it was a novel way to start the evening. We then went to the bar next door for a brilliant evening.
In summary, this was a great start to our weekend. I probably won't go to one again now I've been but I'm glad I've experienced it.

“Good fun”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We saw Ice Barcelona while walking along the beach and decided to get a ticket. Unfortunately the credit card machine was not functioning, we paid in cash, but the bar tender was very apologetic and extremely nice about the situation. Overall the staff was great. Inside was really fun with an ice couch and sculptures, it was nice to get away from the heat. We ended up going back the next day just for a drink at the bar. Great experience.

“Good, but never again!!!”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

The ice bar is a good experience, however it goes without saying that it's a cold one!! There was an offer in our guide book so we got it for 27 Euros between us for entry and a free drink, however the drink wasn't exactly great and it was extremely strong but I was too cold to even say anything about the strength! However all in all it's quite a funny experience although I don't want to repeat it again!
