21 Bars You Just HAVE to Have a Drink At!

Coming home from work, you’ll sometimes stop at your favorite local bar or pub and have a beer (or two). But even though everybody knows your name and just how you like your drink, you might want to visit these 21 extraordinary bars!

1. The Northern Lights bar, Iceland

Aptly named, this bar is part of the ION Hotel, which is located about an hour's drive from Reykjavík (Iceland's capital). You can grab a drink, look up at the sky and enjoy nature's original light-show.

2. The Chill Ice, Quebec City, Canada

Sculpted entirely out of ice, the bar actually melts every summer and rebuilt come winter time. They serve refreshingly cold drinks here, but you should probably wear something warm before you come in...

3. The Rock Bar, Bali, Indonesia

The bar, part of the Ayana Resort, offers its patrons a 360 degree view of the Indian ocean, the beach and cliffs. I'd strongly recommend visiting it during twilight, when the view becomes spectacular!

11. Tiger Leaping Gorge Bar, China

Getting to this bar is a journey all of its own. A 2-day trek along the Tiger Leaping Gorge (don't worry, the path is marked), reaching the bar is its own reward. If that's not enough, it offers spectacular views and wonderful food and drinks.

Tucked inside a 6000 year-old Baobab tree (!), the Sunland Pub was built into the tree's hollow trunk in 1933. Due to limited space, the place can only house 15 people at a time.

14. Club 33, Disneyland, California

That's right, Club 33 is located in Disneyland, offering tired and worn-out parents some "grown-up time", and is the ONLY place in Disneyland that offers alcohol. The only drawback - it's a members-only, and the waiting list is literally years-long...
