Book your visit to Minus 5º ICE BAR in Queenstown for an Antarctic experience. Gear up in winter jackets and boots, and step into an intricately ice-carved world to enjoy 2 drinks of your choice.


  • Marvel at the hand crafted ice structures including the bar
  • Enjoy 2 delicious cocktails or mocktails during your experience
  • Take as many photos as you like to keep the memories forever


On arrival in the famous Steamer Wharf, meet your Ice Hosts in the reception area where you’ll be greeted with smiles and checked-in for your Antarctic Experience. From there, you will be fitted out in our cozy custom-made jackets, gloves & boots if needed. Your host will then lead you and your group into the ice bar, with a quick briefing before being immersed into an icy wonderland. Step inside the ice bar, where everything from the walls and furniture to the bar are hand-crafted from over 18 tonnes of crystal clear ice. For the next hour you’ll get to interact with carved ice sculptures while enjoying a delicious cocktail or non-alcoholic mocktail served in an ice glass! You are welcome to bring your own camera, or there will be staff taking photos that will be available for purchase at the end of your experience
