ICEBAR by ICEHOTEL Stockholm was built in 2002 as the world’s first permanent ice bar. Every year in April, the interior and design are renewed with masses of ice from Torne river in northern Sweden, and carved into art by skilled ice sculptors from ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi.
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.
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.
River to River
Right now until April 2018, the theme at ICEBAR Stockholm is River to River. We invite you to follow the way of the water throughout the seasons. We take you from the dancing river Torne älv to moving ice, the human harvest of blocks of ice and the yearly craftsmanship of constructing the ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi and ICEBARs all over the world. Then when ice turns into water the circle is complete.
Our drink list changes with the yearly change of ice and design, always reflecting the current theme.
Throughout the year, we host temporary exhibitions and happenings in ICEBAR. At the moment there are no events planned. Please check back soon, or follow us in social media to get the latest updates.
