Among these outstanding pubs and bars you’ll not just find some of the swankiest spots to have a drink, but often a very unique atmosphere and a whole lot more.
Cybermachina Game Pub, Krakow, Poland
Krakow’s Old Town is home to more bars per square meter than any other place on the planet, so you’ve really got to stand out if you’re going to lure customers in. Cybermachina manages to do just that by taking drinking and gaming to a whole new level.
There are game systems in every room, a dedicated Guitar Hero area, gamer-themed cocktails and game memorabilia decor in every nook and cranny. We’d understand if you traveled to Poland for the sole purpose of checking Cybermachina out!
Icebar by Icehotel, Stockholm, Sweden
The Icebar by Icehotel, is the original ice bar, and is located in the first permanent ice hotel in the world. The temperature inside is always a cool 19 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit, and all the drinks are served in glasses made of ice.
Don’t worry, your hands won’t freeze if you didn’t bring gloves. They’ve got a pair you can borrow and so you can sip comfortably away while gazing at the fantastic ice sculptures and the gorgeous interior that’s entirely made of ice from the Torne River in northern Sweden.
Northern Lights Bar at ION Luxury Adventure Hotel, Iceland
The Northern Lights Bar in Iceland may not be made of ice, but because it’s located virtually in the middle of nowhere — set against the backdrop of windswept lava fields an hour from the city lights of Reykjavik — it’s one of the most ideal places to see the Northern Lights.
The bar boasts double-height glass walls that provide panoramic views over Lake Thingvallavatn, as well as beer from the nation’s independent micro-breweries.
