It's not hard to get thirsty when you're surrounded by 30 tonnes of ice - you'd have to go to extreme lengths to top Chill On Ice Bar as a unique bar going experience. Why? you may well ask, but when faced with a stunning bar made entirely of ice, your question is answered instantly. That's right; With ice sculptures dominating its chilly confines, sculpted ice couches let you relax with a superbly made cocktail. That's a whole lot of ice, and the sub-zero temperatures make it a simply exhilarating way to indulge your taste buds. Don't fear the cold either - Chill On look after you with a toasty warm coat/gloves/ugg boots (if you choose) combo, so you can keep the extreme cold at bay - just the thing as you sip on the cocktail provided as part of your entry price. The layout of the bar will have you discovering many frozen riches in the magnificently appointed winter wonderland, as you spend your precious minutes (there's a 30-minute time limit on each visit) marvelling at your surrounds. A massive treat for Melbournians.
Mr Boogie Man BAR is located in the inner Melbourne Abbotsford/Richmond area. It is a cool meeting place with groovy décor and friendly staff.
160 Hoddle Street, Abbotsford is quickly becoming the new place on the map to be. Known in earlier days as the Yak Bar, and then more recently as the IDGAFF bar, 160 has been rescued and restored by new owners. With a new name to boot, Mr Boogie Man Bar is a cool and comfortable hang out, for musicians as well as punters. An addition of a food menu keeps the drinkers from fainting, and the very close proximity of public transport makes for an enjoyable night. Live Bands include genres of Rock, Blues, Metal, Pop, and Indie, as well as duo and solo Acoustic performers.
