Club Ice Cube has cooled off in the last few months, but its dim lighting, multi-genre playlist and bar deals still draw the locals. The DJs, Ali and Raj spin everything from commercial to Bollywood and retro as early as 1pm. The bar is well stocked with the usual spirits as well wines and also churns out cocktails and mocktails. Try the BMW (Baileys, Malibu, whisky) if you want to fly high or the oddly named Gangajal - their take on a dirty martini with orange juice. For teetotalers, the Fruit Punch and Summer Delight come recommended. If you want to nibble, pick from Cheese Balls, Shami Kebabs and Fish Fingers. Mondays are Corporate Nights while Tuesday is dedicated to the media, Wednesday is for the ladies and Thursday goes to bankers. On weekends, Ice Cube turns into a dancing spot and only allows couples or large groups, but no stags.
HAPPY HOURS: 1 PM to 7 PM.

I was invited to my office annual party at Ice Cubes on December 21, 2012. I heard a lot about this place from my colleagues who have at some point of time been to this place. Ice Cubes is Lounge & Bar and a kind of makeshift discotheque located adjacent to Food Court at Great India Place mall. The place is pathetically cramped, nothing as far as ambience is concerned, has obsolete music equipment and the DJs out there plays so worse that you feel obnoxiously nauseated. These are the problems I would like the Ice Cubes management and readers here to notice
The DJ was not a specialist in any particular genre (House, Electronic, Hip Hop, Club, Punjabi etc)
Pausing the music for few seconds again and again for making people on dance floor sing became obsolete 10 years ago.
There was no music that is currently being played at International scene. The management should send their DJs for training to clubs in Bangkok or Ibiza to learn the art and science of music remixing. If they cannot afford it, they should at least let them visit Hype or Shiro or Pebble Street (NFC) in New Delhi to see what is currently being played by leading DJs.
The proportionality of music to floor area was too high. The ear drums took 30 minutes to listen again after that noisy party. You must remember that you are playing music in a cramped and dingy place. Your place is not as big as Amnesia (in Pattaya and Ibiza).
The DJ console was 10 feet above the floor area (obsolete setup). You cannot even request for music change easily.
The food there was good but nothing great to act as differentiator. I would not recommend this place to connoisseurs of good remix, club music and dance. Couples! Stay away from this place. You can have a much better time at several other places in NFC, Khan Market, GK etc.

A variety of cuisines combined with the foot-tapping music makes it a perfect place to visit. The place offers a large variety of cocktails for the drinkers so that they can enjoy to the fullest. People can easily go in if they want to spend some time with their beloved just like me.
