It's summer in Australia and temperatures are on the rise.

If you want some respite from the sweltering heat and want to be involved in one of the coolest pop up bars ever to hit Adelaide, then you need to read this.

For just one day in February, Adelaideans will be able to experience life in an arctic-like environment. It's an Ice Bar, made completely from ... ice! The bars and seats are made from solid ice, you sip your cocktails from glasses moulded from ice and the room is full of ice sculptures. No skimpy summer outfits here in the IceBar - you'll be rugged up in snow gear before you enter. The temperatures will be around minus 10 - much colder than anything that we experience here in Adelaide. The temps inside will be way below zero but for one day only, the tickets for IceBar Adelaide will be the hottest in town.

Visitors to Melbourne will be familiar with the IceBar - currently the only one of it's kind in Australia. My son and I had a wonderful visit there a few years ago. It was a highlight of our visit to Melbourne and we often talk about this amazing experience.

Tickets for the Adelaide IceBar are $45 per person for those attending between 2pm and 4pm and $55 per person for those who go between 4pm and 9pm. Ticket prices include one cocktail to each person (over 18). There will be a cash bar inside for additional drink purchases. Each session will last for approximately 45-minutes.

Tickets are limited to only 600 for the day. This really is a once in a blue moon event for South Australia. You will need to be very quick to get your tickets for this one!

Grab a ticket and stay cool.

Let's hope it's not on the hottest day in February, in case it melts quickly. :)

Looks like it’s cancelled. No links work and it’s not on ice bar website

Hi Paula, your links to the Ice Bar don't work. I happened to find an Ice Bar website but it mentioned January. All very mysterious....perhaps that's all part of sifting out those that might really be interested from those can't be bothered with the search!
