Chillout Ice Lounge in Dubai is a must-visit attraction where you can experience -6 degrees temperature in 50 degrees of desert heat.
The Chillout Lounge is the first sub-zero lounge in the Middle East.
Visitors can see fascinating ice sculptures, enjoy the ice seating and tables, and admire the uniquely illuminated interior, all at a sub-zero temperature.
The diffused illumination changes colors at regular intervals and filters through crystal clear ice blocks, making it a visual treat.
The attraction is further decorated with ice shards, stalactites, and stalagmites, making the experience even more surreal.
