The ice hotel in Sweden is one place i've always wanted to visit, someone i worked with spent their honeymoon there. They said it was amazing. How about the bar!!

They got an ice bar in London, its off Regent's street in St Christopher's St methinks if youre interested. You get the ice cape and a 12 minimum spend on a cocktail, and its all ice.

Well that depends if the barman is good looking or not:D.

I know plenty of places where the cocktails are cheaper than 10. Where have you been drinking Zupermaus????

Yep, the whole of Istanbul is starting to look like that, its pedestrianising and restoring tens of thousands of buildings. Foreign tourism is going from 2 million to 10 million in 3 years.

That specific street is called the Rue Francaise:
