Chill out in new bar

It is surely Britain's most chilled venue: a new bar in central London has been fashioned entirely from ice. The furniture, decorations - even the glasses - have all been carved from huge blocks of frozen water.All the ice was harvested in Sweden - chopped from frozen lakes - and exported to the UK.The bar has been built by the same people who built Sweden's famous Ice Hotel.Every summer the hotel melts and every winter all 58 bedrooms are rebuilt.Ice sculptor Ake Larsson has plied his trade in the Nigerian desert, so an ice bar in London was no problem.Customers are given outfits to ward off the cold but the experience does not come cheap. It costs £12 for 45 minutes in the coolest place in town. And it is definitely a non-smoking establishment.
