7 outrageous bars from around the world

7 outrageous bars from around the world

In this blog, we take a look at some of most outrageously quirky and amazing bars from all around the world. Get your bucket list ready, you’ll definitely want to visit most, if not all of them.

Smugglers Cove, San Francisco
If yo-ho-ho, pirate-themed décor and a bottle of rum is your thing, this kitschy bar mimicking Prohibition-era Havana should be on your bucket list. Inspired by the rich history of rum, this acclaimed San Francisco bar has no short supply of it… or the colourful, on point tiki-decorations. It’s a feast for the senses!

Sub Six, Maldives
Allegedly the world’s first underwater bar, Sub Six is located in the Maldives, 500 meters off shore. Accessible only by boat, guests must then venture six meters below the surface of the Indian Ocean. There’s floor-to-ceiling windows with unobstructed views of all the exotic creatures of the sea.

The ICEBAR is the world's first permanent ice-bar. Every year in April, the interior and design is renewed with fresh ice from Torne River and skilful ice sculptors from ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi in the very north of Sweden. The temperature in the bar always stays at minus 7.

Alux Caverna Lounge, Playa del Carmen, Mexico
This bar is a cavern more than 10,000 years old. If that isn't amazing enough on its own, the name of the bar comes from mystical Mayan elves which arise in the light of the moonlight, searching for places with magic to hide. The bar also has a separate cave where they store their wine, where a sommelier can help you to choose the best tipples.

Artesian, London
Named after the original 360ft-deep well under the hotel, and a winner of the 'World's Best Bar' award many years running, the Artesian is a unique cocktail bar at the hotel of one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. The cocktails aren't cheap, but we have it on good authority they're well worth the price.

Rock Bar, Bali
Perched on natural rocks 14 meters above the Indian Ocean, the Rock Bar in Bali can comfortably boast the best views ever. It's arguably the island's most glam sunset and after-dark destination and back in 2011 was voted Bali's Best Sunset Venue in The Yak magazine readers' awards. The interior has a minimalist vibe designed to make the most of the location: the craggy rocks and crashing waves, the sheer cinema of it all.

Aer, Mumbai
Atop of a 34-floor hotel in Mumbai is bar that can boast a 360-degree view of the city. Not for the faint-hearted or those with a fear of heights! Having said that, the open-air bar and lounge starts the evening with a daily "Sunset Happy Hour" so if heights give you the heebie-jeebies, a few world class cocktails are sure to calm them nerves. Leave the incessant clamour of Mumbai far below and enjoy the beauty of the city from the top of the world.
