Reminiscing through pictures about my summer abroad in undergrad at Cambridge reminded me of this bar that needed to be revisited for happy hour: London’s Ice Bar. Your immediate assumptions are correct- it’s a bar built entirely out of ice. Went here for the first time in 2011 during a weekend trip to Londontown. Although this place is somewhat of a tourist trap- the kind I wouldn’t normally recommend- the experience was unique enough to give it another go. This is partly due to the fact that each year the bar is completely transformed with a new theme and layout, sculpted with ice harvested from northern Sweden. It’s amazing to see the different themes the designers can come up with- once you get beyond the insane fact that your in a room made of ice, drinking a cocktail from an ice glass. You can only stay in the bar for a 40 minute session, which is plenty enough time. I made it 30 minutes, and no I’m not a wimp,. It was bloody cold in there. This also gives you time to get yourself over to one of the many other bars in the area hosting 2 for 1 happy hour deals if you wish. If the ice factor doesn’t satisfy you, the cocktails will. Try Purple Rain and thank me later. For 13 pounds Sun-Wed and 16 pounds Thur-Sat when you book ahead, you get the entire ensemble-a thermal cape with a fuzzy hood, gloves, and cute little booties- and entrance with a voucher for 1 free shot. If you’re traveling to the UK or studying abroad here, it’s definitely worth the experience, especially if you don’t think you’ll ever make it to another city in the world that has one.
