Chillout Dubai

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.
