Ice Cave in Centenary Square
It might (i)scream ‘novelty value’ at mountain-top volume but the Coors Light ‘Rave in a Cave’ really does have more cool than a chilled one on a hot day (fingers crossed for one of those soon) with Mixmag DJs, specially blended cocktails and extra special superhero style capes to don to ward off any wintry draughts that might impede your awesomely cool ice cave experience. Free entry for all but lovers of all things new, cool and temporary might want to secure their place by booking. See our feature for details here
