When you think “Dubai,” do you think subzero temperatures, designer parkas, and furniture made of ice? No? Well, maybe you should.
Scandinavia might have Ice Hotels, but now Dubai has the Chill Out Bar, where they take cooling off from the Arabian sun very seriously. This ice lounge keeps the temperature at a brisk -6 degrees Celsius (around 20 degrees Fahrenheit) and upon entry, you're provided with your own parka, shoes, and gloves to stay cozy. While they don’t serve alcohol, you can enjoy a steaming cup of hot cocoa or a mocktail served in a glass made of ice.
