A Dh9 million (US $2.45 million) investment, the restaurant is Dubai-based Sharaf Group’s enterprise while technical inputs came from Canada-based Iceculture Inc, who are credited with building ice lounges around the world, informed a spokesperson for Sharaf Group.

There is also one in London, and no-one goes. There is some tourist traffic but not a huge amount.

And remember - the places in Stokholm and London are actual 'bars'

Basically - you can't spend more than 30 mins in these places, and why would you want to freeze your butt off to drink a mocktail.

No one said it is original but it is to THIS REGION whether you'd like to admit or NOT!
