Absolut Icebar

Vasaplan 2-4
Stockholm , Sweden
46 85 056-3124

Open only from mid-December to mid-April, the Absolut Icebar, within the Icehotel in the small village of Jukkasjärvi, in northern Sweden, holds steady at around 23 degrees. Sure, it seems like every few months an ice bar pops up somewhere: even Vegas has one. But the Jukkasjärvi version was the first permanent ice bar, and it’s refashioned annually with ice harvested from the nearby Torne River. The drinks are served to the bundled-up clientele, as the bar’s motto states, not “on the rocks” but “in the rocks.”

What to Order: An Absolut Wolfpaw—Absolut vodka and lingonberry juice, topped by lingonberries, the national fruit of Sweden.
