Chill Out in Dubai!
Dubai gets first ice bar. There may be no better way to escape the searing summer heat in Dubai than a visit to the Chill Out
Almost everything at the restaurant is sculpted out of ice. Diners sit on ice benches or chairs, eat at ice tables, out of ice
plates, drink from ice glasses served from a bar made of ice.The restaurant is Dubai-based Sharaf Group’s enterprise, while
technical inputs came from Canada-based Iceculture Inc, who are credited with building ice lounges around the world.
|It even has an ice gallery showcasing Dubai’s landmarks.
Complimenting that is an ice portrait of His Highness Shaikh
Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime
Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. Freezing at minus 6 degrees
Celsius the dining area is, well, biting cold!
The 2,400 sqft restaurant has three areas. The lobby and the
lounge areas are separated by what is called the Buffer Zone.
Once in the lobby, visitors will be given thermal gear to protect
themselves from the chilly conditions. It comprises a hooded
parka (a heavy jacket), disposable woollen gloves and a pair
Visitors are advised to first spend a few minutes in the Buffer
Zone to get acclimatised. The temperature in the buffer zone is
set at 5 degrees Celsius which gives the body time to adjust to
the sharp drop in temperature in the dining area.
|The restaurant serves cold cuts , cheese,
juices, ice creams and mocktails, and can accommodate 40
guests, including relatively intimate table-for-two
arrangements for couples.
Seats are cushioned and acrylic-topped tables are adorned
with decorative pieces sculpted from crystal clear ice.
Vapour-mouthed visitors can feel secure in the knowledge that
there are sheepskin throws for the asking should things get
too nippy for their comfort.
|A looming chandelier in the middle of the lounge is made
out of ice blocks strung together by cables, as are
ice-beaded curtains in the couples’ section.
|I wonder if they give you a
take-out ice cube to put in your
drink when you leave, since it is
still extremely hot outside!
Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort with 22,500 square meters of indoor ski area. It is a part of the Mall of the Emirates, one of the
largest shopping malls in the world, located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Ski Dubai is the first indoor ski resort in the Middle East and offers an amazing snow setting to enjoy skiing, snowboarding and
tobogganing, or just playing in the snow. Young or old, there is something for everyone, from the beginner to the snow sport
enthusiast. Ski Dubai is a unique mountain-themed attraction that offers you the opportunity to enjoy real snow in Dubai all year
Another one of Dubai's brilliant and very interesting concept for tourists - to experience skiing in one of the warmest countries in
Oh! But you say you don't ski? Or don't like the cold? That's ok. It is still a lot of fun to watch the activities from the comfortable
temperatures inside the Emirates Mall. Even if you are from Canada or Switzerland or any place that has a lot of snow in the
winter, just the thought of snow in Dubai in the middle of the summer gives you that awesome feeling that you are experiencing
something out of the ordinary! Plus all that name brand shopping!
Just imagine...outside the temperature is + 45 but in Ski Dubai it is -4. How cool is that?! That's the best thing
about Ski Dubai - if you get too cold, just step outside, and you will be warm and toasty again!
Now that's cool! ~S.
(P.S. Visiting Dubai was one of the most wonderful & memorable experiences of my life!)
