Centered on a frozen lounge where everything is made from ice—including the tables, chairs, and glasses—the Chillout Ice Lounge offers a unique sub-zero retreat in sun-drenched Dubai. Visitors come to experience the Arctic-like interior, maintained at an ultra-chilly 21°F (-6°C), which offers a stark contrast to the outside heat, and to eat and drink amid the venue’s stunning giant ice sculptures, which are illuminated in ever-changing colors.
Visitors pay an entry fee and are supplied with outer thermal clothing before briefly waiting in a buffer zone at 21°F (5°C) to help them acclimatize to the lounge’s below-zero temperatures. Options for visiting include prebooking tickets to skip lines at the door, or purchasing combos that include convenient round-trip transport. If you’re planning a wider exploration of Dubai, consider a city sightseeing pass that includes admission to the lounge and other attractions.
