GLASGOW has joined the likes of New York, Tokyo, Stockholm and Moscow with the launch of Scotland’s first ever ice bar.

Baltic Ice Bar Glasgow, based at Snow Factor in Braehead shopping centre, holds up to 20 people at a time and is sponsored by Coors Light.

Customers to the bar, which is open seven days, will pay an entry fee starting at £13 and will be able to spend 45 minutes in an establishment where the walls, floor, bar and glasses are all made from ice.

Temperatures inside are minus five degrees celcius, though thick jackets are provided for customers.

Ice bars can be found in various major cities around the world and often prove to be a popular tourist attraction.

Snow Factor Group Finance Manager Scott McLauchlan said: “Snow Factor Braehead is very proud to open Baltic Ice Bar Glasgow - Scotland’s first ice-bar.

“With the support of great-tasting Coors Light, patrons will be able to enjoy a unique hospitality experience. It promises to be fun.”

The bar is already open and taking bookings.
