Enjoy a Drink in the Coolest Bar of Amsterdam: The Ice Bar

This Attraction is closed until further notice.

What a cool experience would it be, to have a drink in the middle of 60 tons of ice! At the Icebar in Amsterdam you can have exactly that! Take a seat in a bar where the walls, art, tables and chairs are completely made of frozen water.

Drinks are served in glasses that will melt in your hand. So better finish your drink and shake your legs to the great party music. Dancing, accompanied with colourful light instalments, will definitely ensure that you won’t get cold.

To make the coldness inside the Ice Bar a little more bearable you can relax in one of the two bars you will find inside. In the first bar you can enjoy the lounge and your free welcome cocktail. You will be introduced to the cold world of the Nova Zembla in an interesting introduction movie. When you will finish you free welcome cocktail (if you don’t like cocktails, they also serve ice cold Heineken of course!) get ready to freeze!

Very cold drinks 😉

If you are attending on the weekend you *MUST* have a reservation. Make sure you call in advance. Luckily they were kind enough to let is into the next time slot. The bar is much smaller than the pictures look. It does not look like the pictures. The welcome drink was delicious and the staff was very nice.
