Polar sculpture // Moose head sculpture // Dress sculpture // I made a friend in the Moose sculpture // Vodka shots in amazing square ice shot glasses // Me and my shot
On Sunday, before heading over to the Echo Arena to see the wonderful Bruno Mars I thought it would be nice to take a visit to the new Ice Bar in Liverpool one beforehand. Tickets are £7.50 for 25 minutes in the bar and you get a vodka shot when you get in to warm you up! You also get these rather fetching silver ponchos, which make you feel a little bit like a jacket potato.
The bar itself is made completely out of ice (besides the floor… so no bambi moments!) It’s kept at a pretty cold -3 degrees, but if you take in a hot drink from the Aprés Bar like we did (apple toddy for me and a tasty looking hot chocolate for him) and make the most of the vodka shots* then you won’t mind the cold so much.
Despite being quite small, the ice bar is full of amazing ice sculptures. I’ve only posted a few pictures here so not to ruin the surprise for anyone who wants to go. Being a clothes lover it goes without saying that the amazing dress sculpture was my favourite!
Have you ever been to an ice bar? Have you partook in any winter activities yet?
* As long as you’re old enough… and not driving. Safety first, guys!
