Absolut Vodka ice bar SwedenWhile the world famous ice-hotel is rebuilt every year (and not because it melts!, they save the ice blocks) the accompanying ice-bar is open all year. You are not going to find much in the way of wine here; and having just been there that's because its fecking cold inside. Absolut Vodka rules the roost - here being served with a berry juice. The glasses are made of ice, as are the chairs. Donning my juvenile hat myself and Helen had a giggly few minutes playing 'slippy chair'.... And yes, you really do need to wear the fur-lined coats and gloves...

The introductory video showing the hotels construction is fascinating - there is a version on youtube. Its a free standing structure held up by little more than ice and spit (or something). Each year selected artists are given a room to design and make their own. It all comes down again in the spring.

Wish I could check it out in more than pictures.

Wow, that place looks pretty cool.

Hopefully they didn't give you the cold shoulder.

Did you get to try the chilly fries?

O.K., that's enough....

You can have a red nose and nobody knows!
