Chillout Dubai

photo courtesy of

This _literally_ chill bar in Dubai, UAE and is/was the first ice bar in the Middle East upon opening in August of 2007. They keep the temperature at a frigid -6 degrees Celsius (approx 21 degrees Fahrenheit). Upon entering the club, guests are given designer parkas, shoes, and gloves to handle the elements. Drinks (only non-alcoholic, apparently) are served in ice glasses as well.

Seems sort of gimmicky or contrived, but a "cool" place nonetheless.

This comes from the same place where they have a refrigerated sand beach!

Throw in a few man made islands, the world's tallest tower and an indoor ski resort... you don't have to leave the desert to enjoy the world! said...

That's pretty ridiculous! Sounds like a pretty cool place to chill though. :D

Gabriel and Dresden in Des Moines!

    I was shocked when I checked my Bandsintown app to find out that vaunted house DJ’s Gabriel and Dresden were coming to my fair city ...
