What quirkier place to host a party than a restaurant made of ice? It may be chilly, but it will certainly leave an impression on your guests – Chillout offers the chance to eat and drink in -6°C temperatures, and the 50-capacity space can be hired (with à la carte dining options), for around Dhs2,000 on weekdays, rising to Dhs2,800 in the evening. For extra party flair, specialist sculptors The Ice Box have just arrived in Dubai, and can craft anything from a table decoration to an entire igloo out of ice.
