This place was so awesome. After being in the hot humid weather all day, going into the ice bar was just what we needed. Wes who worked there was wonderful and so friendly. Drinking rum out of an ice shot glass was great. Next time I'm in St. Thomas I definitely going back.

I was hesitant at first because it was 11am and no one was there. After all who goes to a bar at 11 am ! However the hostess was very nice and explained how it all worked. So we donned our heavy parkas and ventured inside the ice house! The sculptures are amazing with the work and the ice coming... More

We figured we should come see this place based on online reviews. However, we were rather disappointed. The place is very small and underwhelming. It is dimly lit with colored lights, which could be cool as a bar but you can't actually see the ice sculptures that well. We felt it was extremely overpriced for what you get. Kids would... More

We thought we would check this place out and are glad we did. The entire place is made of ice. They provide you with a parka and gloves to put on. It's a neat place to see but a little pricey for the amount of time we stayed. The cost gets you one shot. We managed to stay for about... More

My teens enjoyed looking at the cool lit-up sculptures, and it was soooo nice and cool inside. However, there was nobody behind the bar to give me the free shot that was included in the exhorbitant price. Also, the ice slide is a joke- you will not slide at all, it is way too flat. Overpriced but fun. Once.

What a welcome relief from the Caribbean sun! This was great fun - especially the slide, amazing ice sculptures and a shot of rum served in an ice glass.

Great place to visit when the heat of the day is getting to you. Go from 85 degrees out side to below freezing in an instant. Not only that but they have and ice bar inside. It is located right along Veterans Drive across from the Harbour.

So cool. Like literally. Everything is made of ice. The bar the glasses the decor all ice. $25 US to get in but very worth it. They give you gloves and a parka to keep you warm

We took a taxi over to Magic Ice from Havensight dock. It is quite pricy but it is very unusaly to see this in a Tropical Island. It is very cold there but the carvings are very good., So we think it was worth the money. Don't plan on a long stay in the frigid cold tho.
