What Is The Amsterdam Icebar?
Situated along the Amstel waterfront in the centre of Amsterdam is a themed bar with a room composed entirely of ice! You'll enter into an ordinary cocktail lounge with music and a chilly decor set in hues of blue, white and purple. An eskimo host will greet you with a free welcome drink before offering to guide you to the signature 'Icebar'.
Now you'll enter into the world of Willem Barentsz, a 16th century Dutch explorer who sought a route through the Northeast Passage to the Indies. His ill-fated 1596-97 voyage serves as the theme of the Amsterdam Icebar's 4D Ice Experience. 60 tons of natural, hand-sculpted ice has been carved into the shape of Nova Zembla's coastline, the frozen island where Willem and his men were stranded for 9 months!
The temperature in the Icebar is kept a steady -10°C, but you'll be fitted with a parka and mittens to keep warm. The room itself is stunning, furniture crafted from the natural ice refracts multicoloured light reminiscent of the aurora borealis. Enjoy the spectacle, savour the chilled drinks and listen to some great music. Book your tickets now online!
