ICEBAR Orlando contains 70 tons of ice and is kept at 23 degrees to maintain their spectacularly designed atmosphere. Home to the world’s largest permanent ice bar, even their drink glasses are made of ice! Along with their full-service ice bar, they offer music, lights, complimentary group photos, and some ironic Florida themed ice sculptures (although they do always add new sculptures). If you’re ready to warm up, just step over to Fire Lounge for one of their nightly drink specials while you dance to the jams provided by a live DJ. It’s two amazing bars in one place! Did I mention they have food?? Appetizers, and sliders, and flatbreads! OH MY! You will not find an experience that matches ICEBAR Orlando’s, so whether you’re a local or a visitor, it is not to be left off your to do list of places to get your party on.

You’re not exactly going to be getting to know someone in a quiet, close setting at ICEBAR Orlando. Got a big birthday coming up? Planning a bachelorette party? Hosting a corporate event? ICEBAR Orlando!
