If you want a place to chill out (literally), a freezing evening at the Arctic Icebar will prove to be an interesting experience. While temperature in bars is usually high enough to allow people to wear more or less revealing clothes, at the Icebar you'll have no choice but to don your winter coat, boots and a few additional layers of clothing, as the temperature is at a constant -5 degrees Celsius.

The entrance fee covers the cost of a drink, which is more than enough seeing as few people can brave to cold for more than an hour or so. Everything inside is made out of ice, so aesthetically speaking, it is really something to see.

Address:
Universitetsgatan 5, 00100 Helsinki, Finland

Price:
€10

Opening Hours:
Wed-Sat 16-02
