The temperature is permanently set to -5 degrees celsius in Absolute Ice Bar, where the JPY 3,500 entrance fee includes a cape to keep you warm, along with a free drink. Yes, true to its name, everything in this bar is made of ice imported from Sweden. The bar can seat about 50 people who are only allowed in for 45 minute shifts due to the cold temperatures, making it feel more like an exclusive art gallery than a place to grab a drink. Nonetheless, it's a spectacle that draws a wealth of visitors, cameras in one hand and complimentary ice cups in the other. While it may look like a shameless and egregious PR stunt from a distance, it's certain to amaze up close. Call or see the website to reserve a time and date to visit this one-of-a-kind (not to mention frigid) Tokyo watering hole.
