Planning your visit

The Absolut Ice Bar is just off the main lobby of the Nordic Sea Hotel in downtown Stockholm. The hotel is on Vasaplan, a short east-west street between the Arlanda Express terminal and Vasagatan. The T-Centralen tunnelbana (underground) station is close by.

photoThe bar is open year-round, with hours varying by season. The cover charge, which includes warm clothing and one drink, is SEK 160 to 180, depending on the time of evening. Refills are SEK 85. Accompanied children under 18 pay SEK 50, which includes a non-alcoholic drink.

Although the Ice Bar supplies a cape-parka, mittens, and (if needed) protective footwear, I'd suggest wearing adequate clothing and shoes to avoid being chilled.

Drop-in hours (no reservations needed) are 9:45 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; for other times, you should book in advance by calling +46 8 50 56 31 24 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. You can also book in advance with an e-form, but if you try that approach, be patient--the form can be very slow to load, even with a broadband connection.

For up-to-date information, see the Absolut Ice Bar Web site.
