StartAbout ICEBAR

The world’s original ice bar

ICEBAR by ICEHOTEL Stockholm is the world’s first permanent bar made of ice, built in 2002. Every year in April, the interior and design is renewed with fresh ice from Torne River and skilful ice sculptors from ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi in the very north of Sweden.

ICEBAR by ICEHOTEL Stockholm is open all year and has a constant temperature of -7 degrees celsius (19 degrees fahrenheit). The interior is made out of sculpted ice from the arctic Torne River, just like the glasses your drink is served out of. The bar has room for up to 60 people. The entry fee includes a cocktail and a visit lasts about 40 minutes. Children are welcome, and are served a colourful kids’ drink.

ICEBAR by ICEHOTEL Stockholm is centrally located on Vasaplan, next door to Stockholm Central Station and the airport shuttle train Arlanda Express. Hotel C Stockholm is located in the same building as ICEBAR Stockholm. Since it opened in 2002, the ice bar has become a popular attraction in Stockholm, attracting both tourists and locals who want a slice of the arctic north in downtown Stockholm.

The experience

From the pulse and stress of downtown Stockholm, we welcome you into our arctic world. We help you into a warm coat and thick gloves, and then you step into a piece of art. You are greeted with cool, crisp air, a beautiful and unique interior, artistic light design and a cocktail served in a glass made of ice. This is not just a drink at a bar in central Stockholm – it’s a slice of northern Sweden’s polar magic and totally unique experience.
