ICEBAR London #bloggersbelowzero

IMG_0394 (1)A few months ago I got an email from the lovely Lauren from Blonde Vision about an upcoming event she was hosting at the ICEBAR London. I was sold in a second; a chance to experience the epic Ice Bar, mingle with bloggers and have a cheeky cocktail sounded like a winner to me.

We began our evening downstairs in the restaurant and were given a welcome talk from Tom, the Head of Sales and Marketing. Tom started out as a journalist so it was lovely to have someone so welcoming and appreciative to have bloggers at his place of work, and he was really informative about ICEBAR. Every year they change the theme of the ICEBAR, with previous themes include frozen food, architecture, aquatic, and many more. This year’s theme is ICEBAR LONDON Rocks and you can watch how Jens Thoms Ivarsson and his team designed and built it here.

We were each given wristbands upon arrival separating us into three groups, as we had three different time slots booked. Before entering the ICEBAR you are given a thermal hooded cape and gloves as the temperature inside is -5 degrees and you get 40 minutes inside the ICEBAR. You pick your cocktail from the menu and it is served inside a crystal clear Torne River ice glass, which is harvested from the beautiful Jukkasjärvi in Northern Sweden. Seriously go and google it, it’s just jaw-droppingly beautiful.

I had a Jumping Jack Flash which is Absolut Vodka, Apple Puree, Passion Fruit Juice and Lemon Juice. It was lovely and I would definitely recommend that as a choice. It’s absolutely stunning inside and the intricate detail in the ice is incredible. I surprisingly didn’t feel the cold for quite a while and even braved taking the gloves off to get some pictures.

All round the experience was amazing, and to share with a bunch of like minded lovely bloggers made it even more special. I’m not suggesting, I’m TELLING you all to go and book yourself tickets for the ICEBAR today, you will not regret it. I’ve already decided I will be going back there for my birthday and I can’t wait.
