About
Be absorbed into a world crafted purely of ICE architecture! Everything from the walls and furniture, to the bar and intricately hand carved statues are all made from crystal clear ICE. Even our infamous cocktails are served in glasses made entirely out of ICE! Dress up in our cosy jackets and boots, and explore over 18 tonnes of ice in -5 degrees and colder. A family experience you will never forget, a pre dinner chilly cocktail, or a 'cool' start to a lively night on the town. Can you handle the THRILL OF THE CHILL?

    100% would recommend and visit again.
    Enjoyed the whole experience, it was very cool how the cups were made out of ice and we could break them ourselves. We tried ALL of the cocktails on offer and they were made perfectly. The hosts were the best and so welcoming and very fun!! Definitely had the VIP service.
    Thank you so much for your lovely review! Can't wait to see you in again soon! - M5 Crew ☃️

    Great experience.
    A great experience in Queenstown and well worth a visit. We had been intending checking this out for a long time and it was worth the wait. The people that are working there really make it and big shout out to them. Do it for something a bit different and for some pretty cool cocktails.
    Thank you so much for your lovely review! We really appreciate your support and we agree, the team at Minus5° ICE BAR are second to none! ❄️⛄️

    Very cool experience!
    My fiancé and I visited the Ice Bar and absolutely loved it! Morgan was our bartender, not only was she so sweet and hilarious, she also made us tasty drinks! I believe our experience would have been completely different if she wasn’t serving us. Overall, I would recommend going! It’s a cool place to cross off your bucket list.
    Thank you so much for your kind review, we are so glad that you had an amazing experience with us! Morgan is a gem! ⛄️❄️

    Fun activity
    Always great fun rugged up and having a yummy drinks in the freezing cold! Whole family enjoyed the experience. Even with the warmer jackets its very cold, so you don"t need much time in there! Would have been a 5 start rating if there were a few less people in the bar when we visited.

    Fun
    Great fun. We were arrived on our own in shorts! Soon got chatting to others from Australia and had a bit of banter. We had the cocktail deal and thought an hour might be too long. , but we had great fun talking with the others. It was pretty full ,I can imagine if it wasn’t it wouldn’t be as good As it turned out think shorts was the better option as those with long trousers on felt the cold from the trousers touching the skin All in we had a great time b

    New experience for me.
    Now I know what the beer feels like in the Esky/ chilli bin. This was a good way to kill an hour. Drinks were reasonably price for the experience. I was expecting to get fleeced when you got it. The bar person got the crowd involved. Some great sculptures inside. Have a look on bookme to get a cheaper rate.

    Cool Time at Minus 5* Ice Bar
    What an awesome time we had! It was cold but we were provided with polar jackets and gloves to keep warm. There was a good selection of cocktails and drinks. Two drinks are also included in the price and extra drinks can be purchased once you have begun the experience. Although, I found two drinks is enough in one hour. The ice scupltures are amazing and the lighting really enhances the experience. As only a small number of people can gain entrance during the hour, it is easy to move around and admire each of them. The music was great so we enjoyed a little dance :-) It is something different to add to your itinerary in Queenstown. At $34 per person including two drinks, it is well worth a visit!

What a great experience! From the front desk that allowed us to enter before our allotted time, to a fun bartender and great crowd. Everyone was laughing and enjoying the music.
