Famous for it’s chill atmosphere the Ice Club is a must visit on a warm Summer night in Rome.
Or even perhaps in Winter! I visited with a group of friends in December of 2009 — and even for a Monday – this place was a lot of fun. Yes, it is made of ice. The interior is carved by designers and kept a few degrees below freezing.
Interior is carved ice!
Visitors are given a parka to stay warm, but I recommend dressing for a cold day as the parka isn’t enough if you have thin shoes or bare legs.
Our bartender, Allessandro, was from Ireland and was most accommodating. I said, “how about this, make me something to remember Alessandro.” He said “oh you bet’cha. Cheers.” I’m not sure what Alessandro made for me but it was excellent.
My friends and I chilled for about an hour until we were too cold and headed home.
