For Dubai, it was not enough having the most expensive, and the tallest skyscraper in the world, so they decided to have the first ice lounge in the Middle East. Moreover, they wanted to show how progress can be done by building it in the middle of the desert! In this ice lounge, everything is made of ice (duh!); couches, chandeliers, and even glasses! Furthermore, the degree hits about 21 degrees Fahrenheit where the outside degree is about 95. Take a tour with us in this unusual restaurant.
The Chillout Lounge first opened in 2007, and UAE’s Sharaf Group owns it. Moreover, in 2014, the restaurant had major refurbishment where they created a location that is full of ice sculptures, ice couches and tables, in addition to a unique lightening systems. All of this with a temperature of bel.ow zero!
Once a visitor arrives, he or she is given specially made clothing in order to keep them warm while they are in a minus 6 degrees place. The clothing includes: a heavy jacket, gloves made of wool, shoes and gloves made for extremely low temperatures. After that, visitors have to stay in a specially made room so that their bodies can get accustomed to the low degree, since in Dubai, the temperature is always high.
On The Inside
Once you come in, you will find the most unique interior design. Everything is either made of glass, steel, and of course ice. Moreover, the lightening changes its colors every once in a while, based on a specially made time interval. In addition, you will feel the magic moments once the lights strike on the crystal clear ice cubes, and a very beautiful hue combines on the inside of each cube.
The Chillout ice lounge serves hot soups, sandwiches, juices, hot chocolates, coffee, tea and a variety of deserts, mock-tails and confectionary, making it the first of its kind in the world to serve hot food & beverages.
