Public drinking served as meeting places for families, friends and coworkers to relax and to just hang out. There are even bars for any taste and mood. Check out below and see the most unusual bars that gained international fame attracting thousands of people every year.
1) H.R Giger bar in Gruyeres, Switzerland
Also known as the Skeleton Bar, the design of this bar is covered by double arches of vertebrae that crisscross the vaulted ceiling of an ancient castle. This unusual bar gives you the feeling of actually being in a fossilized belly of a beast. The design of this bar is odd but can you believe that it is actually located inside a museum?
Want to try drinking in a bar that is inside a humongous tree? You're in luck! Located in South Africa, this baobab tree turned bar is approximately 6,000 years old, making it one of the oldest living things on earth. This majestic baobab tree bar is 4 metre high, 47 metre wide and can comfortably seat up to 15 people. It even has its own wine cellar!
3) Guacara Taina in Dominican Republic
Being the only underground bar/club built inside a natural cavern, this bar/club is 60 feet below earth's surface! This naturally decorated stalagmites and stalactites bar/club has 3 dance floors and is able to seat up to 3,000 people.
Located 5 metres below the surface of the Red Sea, this bar, also a restaurant, offers an oceanesque decor, with sand floors covered by a layer of clear epoxy, sea urchin cushions on the chairs and a giant window offering an amazing underwater view of marine life. This unique atmosphere is great for a business meeting and even for a romantic date.
5) Vampire Café
Draped in red velvet, the entire cafe is decorated with crucifixes, spiders, skulls, bats, candelabras, bizarre pictures and a Dracula's coffin as the centerpiece. Visit Ginza in Tokyo for this creepy experience where you can even order a Blood Clot or a Bloody Mary. Maybe even eat some vampy-named dishes.
6) Alcatraz ER
Tokyo has done it again. Home to the bizarre Vampire Cafe, it now has an Alcatraz ER bar, a "medical prison." The procedure to enter this bar is quite weird and crazy. To enter to this bar, the guests have to declare their blood type and let the staff know if they are suffering from any kind of health disorders. Then a nurse will fill out the medical chart and prescribe the right "medicine." After that, the guests will be handcuffed and taken to their prison cell where they can drink and eat.
Located in Truskavets, Ukraine, this coffin shaped bar, 20m long, 6m wide and 6m tall, is the newest tourist attraction. Funeral flower arrangements and real coffins are used as decorations. Even the waitresses will be dressed to match the theme. Do you dare to eat off from a real coffin turned table?
Ever experienced any of these bizarre bars? What's the most interesting bar that you ever went to?
