Barcelona, August, 15:00 in the afternoon. It is 34 degrees on the Barceloneta beach and on the sand hundreds of people are sunbathing. The heat is scorching and suddenly, in the distance, a young man wearing a winter hat, gloves and jacket enters into a bar close to the beach. We approached to discover if the boy in question had developed super powers, or if he was just crazy. How can he dress like that in August? And suddenly, everything fits. It’s the Ice Bar Barcelona! A bar made entirely out of ice where the temperature inside all year round is approximately -5 º C.
Now our clothing seems ridiculous: flip-flops, shorts and bikini is not the best attire to enter into a suddenly freezing winter ambient. Fortunately, there we are provided with warm clothing, hats and gloves (house standard and courtesy) to withstand the cold. The bar is lovely and it seems magical. A blue light fills the whole of the bar made entirely of ice: the chairs, the glasses, the tables… Everything is frozen!
The Ice Bar is open daily from 12:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. and offers an extensive menu of cocktails and tapas to enjoy the best flavours of the Mediterranean. And for those sensitive to the cold, there is no problem! Because it also has a terrace on the beach with incredible views!
After discovering the famous bar by chance, we decided to call all our friends to share the experience with them. If the group is larger than 6 people it is advisable to make a reservation, because the place is not very big and it may get filled up.
