What to expect at IceBarcelona
Upon entry to this wonderland, you will be given a jacket and some gloves to keep you warm… but we still recommend some more layers! Then you can explore IceBarcelona. One of the main attractions that this place has to offer is its themes. The theme for 2019 is the 80s! With the theme running throughout, you can enjoy an ice-cold beverage whilst enjoying songs from Prince to the Pet Shop Boys. The theme of the ice bar Barcelona´s are inspired by everything that you could associate with that decade, country etc… For the 80s, 2019 at IceBarcleona was all about video games, movies, and of course … music. We cannot wait to see what theme will be chosen for 2020! Also, a popular feature of these themes are the fact that you can help choose the music as a DJ! With an open playlist for you to add your favourite hits related to their theme, you will have great fun all night long!
In addition to this, the bar has ice sculptures located in every corner. Making this bar, come museum, a truly unique place to come for a drink in Barcelona. From gorillas and other animals, to the infamous Pennywise clown of the hit film, IT, the sculptures are truly works of art and are even worth the visit alone! They are maintained by the same renowned artists that made them until they are replaced in April and October, so you might want to bear this in mind: Christmas is one of the best times in the year to go!
