Icebar Oslo, as the name suggests, forgoes traditional building materials such as brinks, mortar, and wood, and instead is entirely constructed out of tons of ice.

You will also be given a complimentary beverage in a glass made of ice. The main draw of the bar is the unique atmosphere created by the interspersion of ice and lighting, which means patrons are typically tourists or flock to the establishment in large groups rather than as individuals looking to grab a drink. Catering is available for businesses, and the bar will even make an ice sculpture of the business' logo.
