They say it’s “The Coolest Place in Spain”, literally! With temperatures inside its frozen walls reaching a chilling -14ºC Boal’s Ice Bar in Benalmadena Marina is actually Spain’s first ice bar and an extremely popular destination for tourists and locals looking for a fun and unique experience.
Everything in the bar is made of ice: The walls, the bar, the seats, the sculptures and even some of the glasses (the ones used for shots) are made of ice! And don’t worry of you haven’t packed your fleece… as part of the entrance fee, you are provided with a thermal cape, gloves and socks to keep you warm!
Getting into Benalmadena’s Ice Bar will cost you €10 for adults and €5 for kids and includes the rental of the thermal gear and a cocktail of your choice. There’s no need to book, just turn up and you’ll be given a ticket for the ice bar; you might have to wait a while but they also have a very nice exterior terrace called the Igloo Bar where you can enjoy a quick drink before your “cool” experience.
If you’re feeling brave, you can also challenge for the bar’s endurance record. They’ve got some interesting categories: Guys in trunks, girls in bikinis or even nude! Apparently the record for this last one stands at 3 minutes 🙂
