Ice bar Dubai

DUBAI – As temperatures begin to soar around the Arabian Gulf, Dubai – the destination with almost everything – has a new attraction: a chill-out bar entirely made of ice.

Patrons step into an environment with the walls, tables, chairs and even their own personal glass with a cool mocktail made out of ice.

Chillout will be the first Ice Lounge in the world, serving a selection of cold sandwiches and salads apart from a range of beverages such as Asian Mount Everest, Canadian MT Logan, The Chillout bar Mix, Lawrence of Arabia amongst other

Said Ibrahim Sharaf, chairman of the developers, Sharaf Group, “There are a very few ice lounges in the world, and those mainly at places with a cold climate. So, the idea of building an ice lounge in Dubai was not only intriguing but also challenging.”

When guests arrive at Chillout, they are provided with thermal clothing – a designer parka with hood, one time use hand gloves, and protective footwear.

Next, guests step into an air lock, close the door, and open another door that leads into the Chillout’s frozen inner sanctum.

To prevent body heat from damaging the pristine surface of the ice blocks, it has a maximum capacity of 45 visitors.

The ice used in Chillout is made by a special process so that it is crystal clear with no opaqueness providing an immaculate look to the entire lounge

Other ice features at Chillout include a seven feet high chandelier, ice curtains, a coloured ice portrait of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and the skyline of Dubai along with other points of interest.
