Sweden is home to the famous Ice Hotel, located way up north in Swedish Lapland, where you can sleep on ice beds in an artistically sculpted ice room and dine on ice dishes with drinks in ice cups in the dead of winter. Adventurous couples can even get married in the ice chapel. (I fully considered this.) If your plans don’t include a northern jaunt during the winter months, you can still get your icy fix at the Icebar inside downtown Stockholm’s Nordic Sea Hotel.

At the Icebar, you’ll don gloves and a parka, then enter a temperature controlled chamber. Once the outer door closes, the inner one opens and you’re suddenly inside a glowing world of ice. The walls are lit from within and slowly change colors, reminiscent of the Northern Lights. There are ice tables and ice chairs, and plenty of sculpted embellishments for photo ops, like reindeer wall carvings you can pop your head into.

This fancy bar is cooled to -5 degrees Celsius, and you can order nordic themed drinks in ice glasses. My personal favorites were “Husky Sledge” (Absolut vanilla with cinnamon and apple) and “Northern Light” (Absolut Raspberry, creme de cassis lime and raspberry puree).

The Icebar is a super cool way to spend a frosty evening in Stockholm. Located right next to the central train station, a visit here is an exceptionally unique experience that shouldn’t be missed!
