Enjoy vodka IN the rocks amid 20 tons of ice art that make up the Ice Kube Bar, reputed to be the first and only ice bar in the French capital.

Welcome to Funky Friday, a new segment we’re trying out which features one photo that we think singularly expresses a hotel’s inner psyche. We look for, and often find, a lot of wacky, wild and wondrous designs that seem to have one thing in common: a Type A personality. So why not have a bit of fun as we all wrap up our week by taking a quick look at some hotels that quite frankly, want our attention.

Ice hotels come and go and they don’t come cheap as we have seen in the ICEHOTEL design suites. Well, put your plastic away because for a mere €25 (for three drinks) you can chill out in Paris—yes Paris-- at the Kube Hotel's seriously cool Ice Kube Bar. Whether or not you took the ice bucket challenge, and we commend you if you did, a visit to the Ice Kube Bar is a must see when in Paris.

So we're sticking to Sweden's slightly warmer southern capital of Stockholm and to its Nordic Sea Hotel, whose proudest selling point is its Absolut Ice Bar.

Absolut bloody freezing, we guess. But as you know, in Sweden, hotels aren't about cosy mattresses and comfort but about style, design and the being seen. To get in with the A-crowd in this city, it's no pain, no gain.
