ABOUT ICEBAR COPENHAGEN BY ICEHOTEL
In April 2009 ICEBAR CPH by ICEHOTEL opened in the Danish capital Co-
penhagen. The “Purity with a Twist” theme permeating these bars respectfully
allows the Jukkasjärvi ice to speak for it self. On the menu are light meals with
an arctic tone and a range of beverages and there are numerous possibilities for
different types of events - for small as well as large parties. No one can recreate
a place as unique as ICEHOTEL but visiting an ICEBAR by ICEHOTEL will,
for a moment, teleport you to Jukkasjärvi in Swedish Lapland.
