We went there for the experience and it was nice. You can only spend 25 minutes there due to the temperature and drinks are already included, they also provide gloves and a jacket, but it's still cold. The room is small and absolutely everything is...More

It is what it is- an ice bar! You pay 140 Argentinan pesos for 25 minutes and in that time you can drink all that you want. It's located in the same place as the Glaciarium museum. Shuttle back to town was included as it's...More

For young people, it is a better, cheaper and funnier place to visit! You pay about 140ARS to have a 25min open-bar and a lot of good pictures opportunities. Be sure to bring your camera with you! Glaciarum was just one museum... More expensive and...More
