IceBar Is Preparing To Open At Surfer's Paradise

After its success in Melbourne, the move to Surfer’s – where people need an IceBar the most – is genius.

IceBar is coming to Surfer’s Paradise in early 2024, opening its second destination in Australia since the Melbourne venue – at The Atrium, Federation Square, in June 2023 (IceBar was previously located on Brunswick Street).

As Secret Brisbane reports, IceBar Surfer’s, like its Melbourne counterpart, will be made entirely of ice, with the space featuring an abundance of cocktails, mocktails and shots served in glasses made of ice, as you can see above. After its success in Melbourne, the move to Surfer’s – where people need an IceBar the most – is genius.

The second of its kind in Australia, punters will be given an oodie, gloves and boots to keep warm in the —-10-degree room. Punters are encouraged to have professional photos taken during their 45-minute sessions.

While there’s plenty of adult fun to be had, IceBar also welcomes children and people under the age of 18 as long as they have an adult guardian with them.

According to Trip Advisor reviewer Debbie S, IceBar Melbourne is a “once-in-a-lifetime experience”. Debbie wrote, “Definitely something to tick off the bucket list. Worth doing just once. Different prices and packages to choose from. The cocktail we had and the shot in our package tasted amazing. Could have drank so many more of them.

“Extremely cold though, so can’t stay that long even though you are rugged up with the appropriate supplied clothing. You will only do this once in your lifetime.”

In other recent events held at the Surfer’s Paradise, HOTA Gallery welcomed the new Sneakers Unboxed: Studio to Street exhibition last Saturday.

Among the highlights of the exhibition is the exploration of how sneakers like the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star, the Puma Disc, and the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next% have transcended their athletic origins to become cultural icons. The exhibition opened on Saturday, 25 November, and offers daily sessions from 10 am to 3 pm.

Earlier this year, Surfer’s Paradise Beach hosted the return of the free music festival SPRINGTIME, which included sets by Bag Raiders (DJ set), BENEE, Matt Corby, Eliza & The Delusionals, and many more.
