NileGuide Expert tip:
Book ahead to avoid the chance of being left outside in the warm
This is the UK's only year-round ice bar. Everything inside - the walls, bar, tables, designer sculptures, even your glass - is made of crystal-clear ice from Sweden. To prevent hypothermia/your skin sticking to the ice/your nose dropping off, you are loaned a thermal cape with a hood, plus gloves. The inside is beautifully themed (changing every 6 months) so think of it as an art experience rather than as London's coldest and most expensive pub - £12.50-£16 for a 40-min session, includes one drink.
