Absolut Icebar

One of the things we really wanted to do in Stockholm was to go see the Absolut Icebar. Yes, I know, it is a very touristy thing to do. But now I can say I've done it.

Twice a year, the bar's interior is replaced with fresh ice and is given a new concept. We went just two weeks after the "factory" theme was unveiled complete with cogwheel chairs, ice pipes, and industrial house music.

There was even a conveyer belt for the vodka and you drink out of ice glasses.

The interior is kept at -5ºC (23ºF) and you are given a parka and gloves to wear when you go in.

The entrance fee is 145 SEK (~$23) but that does include one beverage. Once you're in you can stay as long as you want but the cold does wear on you after a while. It felt really good once we left and got a drink to help warm us up.
