Circular Ice Bar

Ice bars

Ice bars are one of our most popular party sculptures made from crystal clear ice that is beautifully crafted into a fully functional drinks bar. They can be carved into almost any shape or size for any occasion and can even feature stools and icy glasses for guests to drink from.

You may have seen small-scale ice bars working as drinks dispensers or seafood servers at restaurants and hotels, but we pride ourselves on creating bespoke sculptures that ignite conversation and leave a lasting impression. Whether for a large-scale event, wedding, party or even a festival, our ice bars never fail to impress.

Why are Ice Bars a great addition to an event?

Ice bars transform your celebration and allow you to not only serve your guests drinks but present them as living works of art. We firmly believe that ice sculptures bring a new level of sophistication and wonder to any event, but ice bars, in particular, create a more interactive element that will captivate attendees. 

An intricately crafted and well-designed ice bar can completely transform the look and feel of your event. With a bespoke design, you can carve anything from a happy birthday greeting to a real-life portrait into the ice to make the day that much more special. Equally, ice bars can be used as a vehicle for brand promotion and advertisement with a carved icy logo, product, or business name lit up with LED lighting.  

They are the perfect ice breaker (if you’ll pardon the pun!), allowing guests a focal point to strike up a conversation with people around them. This icy social catalyst will encourage new friendships, networking and new connections to turn your event into a wonderful social experience where people can bond over ice-cold drinks.

How long do ice bars last?

Our customers are always eager to understand how long their ice bar will last, as the functional nature of the sculpture means it will need to last for the whole event. As such, we design our ice bars to be long-lasting, and whilst their lifespan will ultimately depend on the venue’s temperature, humidity levels and guest interaction, they should last throughout your event.

Our ice bars generally take 24 to 48 hours to melt away, with the ice being propped up on discreet drainage boxes that are used to collect dripping water. You will never have to worry about the ice melting away too quickly as it is a slow and controlled process that ensures the bar remains functional and visually stunning until your last guests depart.

Our Previous Ice Bar Projects

For over 50 years, we have been proud to work with customers on projects for both private and public events.

Whether you are celebrating at a private function for close family and friends or organising a large-scale corporate event to celebrate a brand, our Hamilton Ice team is here to turn your icy dreams into a reality.

Here we have examples of some of our previous Ice Bar projects:

Icy Cherry Blossoms

Our design and sculpting team were thrilled to work on this ice bar project that harmoniously blended nature and icy craftsmanship into one. With a living cherry blossom tree nestled at the centre, we were tasked with creating a circular ice bar adorned with frozen branches of cherry blossom in its façade carefully lit by pink LEDs. The end result was a truly captivating scene that wowed guests for a uniquely beautiful celebration. 

Champagne Celebrations

For this project, we were tasked with designing and crafting an ice bar that provided attendees with a simple, elegant and awe-inspiring beverage service. We were able to create an immersive luxury ice bar experience that allowed the Moet to take centre stage, being surrounded by carefully fanned-out layers of ice and bathed in a soft, ethereal glow from white LED lighting. By seamlessly merging art, technology, and the finest champagne, we transformed a simple bar into an extraordinary centrepiece.

Festive Wonderland

This magical project required our team to design and sculpt a whimsical ice bar that could bring this winter wonderland to life. The finished masterpieces featured meticulously carved blocks of ice, designed and cut to resemble rich wood grain, supported by life-like icy wooden barrels and illuminated by an inviting white LED glow. 

Surrounded by festive fir trees, this ice bar helped guests to be transported into a frosty fairytale realm where they could enjoy premium liquors housed in an icy bar back and protected by the cute ice squirrel perched above!
