The Chillout Ice Lounge, created by Sharaf Hospitality, is the first ice lounge in the Middle East, launched in 2007, the ice lounge had a major refurbishment in July 2014. The Middle East's first sub-zero lounge is decorated with ice sculptures, unique seating and illuminated interiors. All are maintained within a -6 degree Celsius environment, providing an icy escape that makes for a memorable chill out experience. There are hot drink options to help guests banish the icy chill and a variety of classic hot meals on offer.

Once visitors arrive they are given thermal clothing to keep themselves warm in the minus six degrees. This comprises of a hooded parka (a heavy jacket), woollen gloves, shoes and socks, if required. Visitors are advised to spend a few minutes in the 'buffer zone' area to get acclimatized. The temperature in the buffer zone is set at 5 degrees Celsius, which gives the body time to adjust to the low temperature in the main Chillout Ice Lounge.

The Chillout Ice Lounge combines the novelty of subzero temperatures with a unique interior design. It is a technological innovation in refrigeration, lighting, architecture & sculptured ice.

The diffused lighting changes its colours at certain intervals and it filters through crystal clear blocks of ice, filling them with low-lux hues of varying patterns, making the moment freeze in its ambience. All these elements have been intelligently composed to create one of the best ice lounges in the world.

The 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.

Chillout Ice Lounge is located at the ground level, Times Square Center, on the Sheikh Zayed Road -Dubai.

Why not visit us for a memorable experience with friends and family. We are available for birthday parties, event, film shoots and private hire.

It is very nice and cute place, the idea of the this lounge is amazing special at GCC countries to feel fresh and cold air, maybe to freeze a bit as well. As I remember the price is 80 AED and it is including hot chocolate. It is nice to go as a couple or with family, kids definitely love... More

With the warmer weather, the Ice Lounge is the place to go to see incredible ice sculptures and have a nice cup of hot chocolate.

It was my first experience in such a cool place and cool. At the height of disbelief such a place is unique for tourists. I went there with his friends by the leader of the way there with a cup of hot chocolate we hosted. A good place to take pictures with the statue is made from ice that attracts... More

This is a sub Zero temperature restaurant, and one of its kind. There are many ice sculptures which are lit with colorfull leds, which are beautiful. The temperature is -6*c and you are welcomed with a hot cholocate drink. Although the food items and the entrance fee was expensive, since it was a new experience we loved it.

while this is a neat concept - freezing your tush off in the heat of Dubai, in practice its overly priced and boring. I paid the 90 aed entrance fee which included a cup of tea or hot chocolate. However, the waiter had left as it was too cold for him and I had to chase him down. By the... More

I have visited the ice bar in London so was very disappointed by this attraction. Compared to the London attraction this is very cheaply and poorly done. Do not expect the same and maybe you won't be so disappointed. Service was extreamly slow to get a drink, cannot comment on the food as we didn't eat here. Overall I was... More

Staying in Al Quoz

Neighbourhood Profile
Al Quoz
Al Quoz sits literally at the halfway point between old and new Dubai. At first sight it has little to recommend it: warehouses and factories dominate the area, with some residential areas on the outskirts. Heavy goods vehicles roar up and down the roads and laborers stop at small hole-in-the-wall cafes for a cheap lunch. But it is fast becoming a magnet for art lovers: Alserkal Avenue is a significant contemporary art hub, home to 25 galleries and arts spaces, with ambitious expansion plans. The galleries host exhibitions, talks, panel discussions, auctions, and community events. If you love art, pass by to visit the galleries, it’s a great opportunity to get a sense of art and community in the region and to sit alongside key influencers and artists as they go about their day.
