Our Scandinavian-inspired cocktail lounge, built from 25 tonnes of hand carved, glass-like ice architecture. We’ll keep you cosy in our luxe winter coats and quench your thirst with our carefully curated cocktail menu.

Find us at the Upper Village, next to the iconic Queenstown Gondola. Settle in and let us take care of you for your pre-dinner tipple, après ski cocktail, or late-night drinks.


Why Ice?

Queenstown is renowned as a ski town – but why should that cosy après drinks environment be restricted to three months of the year? We think cocktails in the cold is an experience best served year-round, and now they can be.

Our Cocktails

We’ve partnered with Absolut vodka to bring you a premium cocktail list, curated by our expert bartenders and served in our signature ice glasses. If you’re a non-alcohol drinker, fear not – our mocktail menu has had just as much care put into it.

Ice Architecture

There’s always something new to experience at the Ice Bar, with our incredible ice sculptures changing every few months thanks to several blocks of ice, chainsaws, chisels, and one extremely talented ice carver.
