This long-standing Mayfair spot pretty much does what it says on the tin: it's an icy bar. It's kept at -5C, with visitors given thermal boots and jackets to keep the cold at bay. Each session lasts 40 minutes, and should be booked in advance.
Drinks – served in tumblers made of ice – include a stairway to heaven (Pommery Champagne, Aperol and grapefruit bitters) and a living on a prayer (Absolut Citron, pink grapefruit liqueur, cranberry juice, lemon juice and orange bitters).
There's an upstairs restaurant and lounge, too. The food menu here features dishes such as ham hock ballotine, rabbit pie, a house burger, flat iron steak and a chicken, red wine and bacon casserole with a bourguignon garnish and garlic mash. Desserts include an orange panna cotta with meringue, orange candy and hazelnuts, as well as carrot cake served with edible soil and mascarpone cream.

London's "coolest" venue! Great fun with friends ! Amazing drinks, food & staff this place really delivers an experience!!
Visited last night. It's not just the ice that's cold at the ice bar....it's the frosty service from the waiting and bar staff; it's the 'hot' meal that you ordered over an hour ago; it's the size of the cocktails which are frankly a joke. A really disappointing evening and we will not be visiting again. AVOID.
A cool place to start the night Small space with some seating areas. Great music and lighting effects, would be nice if they had a special sculpture of the month/ year giving all the tourists another paparazzi corner. For 14 pounds a 40 minutes session with a free cocktail served in a cup made out of ice isn't bad at all. Great place as an icebreaker for a first date or an event. Awesome bartenders. Helps you overcome the london weather - definitely doesn't seem so bad as you step outside with a frozen nose.
