    About the Ice Bar 

    Sharm El Sheikh is located at the southernmost tip of the Sinai Peninsula in the Red Sea and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. While it’s home to many of the region’s most iconic sites including the Red Sea, Mount Sinai, the Sinai desert, and the magical Colored Canyon in the North, the Ice Bar has become one of the hottest spots around.

    Located in SOHO Square and open 6pm - 12am, all local taxis and buses provide services to SOHO Square and the bar also runs a pickup service that you can call for details about. The entry price is simply your choice of drink from a full bar range, or drink-vodka shooters the way they are meant to be served - chilled to perfection.
