Ice Bar Amsterdam

Located a few minutes away from the popular Rembrandt Square, you can start your night or end your day with this unique experience in the Ice Bar.

While you may have your days packed with activities and visits to the Amsterdam museums, biking tours of the city or boat tours of the canals, you may not have as many ideas when it comes to night time activities. At Ice Bar Amsterdam, you can cool down and unwind by stopping by for a tour and few drinks, but this isn’t any old drinking bar… at Ice Bar Amsterdam, you can drink at a bar actually made out of ice in a room set at a cool -10º C! Everything from the glasses till to the wall is made out of ice. Real ice. It is a great way to explore a tiny bit of the Amsterdam nightlife.

Anniversary Trip

Popped in here for a wee visit to see what all the fuss was about. Well, we were not disappointed. What an atmosphere, ice cold but kept lovely and warm with the jacket and gloves supplied. Kept entertained by Boris our captain who certainly knows how to keep a crowd going. Tasty vodka shots, just wish i knew where to but them. I can recommend this place!



It was fun, but short experience. We spend about 90 minutes.


Good Start Of A Night Out
