Unusual bars in the world: When we travel, we are often thirsty. After a tiring day of discovery, you need to give your body a long-awaited rest and relax with a couple of drinks. And surprisingly, even in the most remote places on the planet, you can often find a place to have a cold drink.
The world is starting to reopen after the pandemic, and here are some of the most remote bars.
9 most unusual bars in the world
- Faraday Bar, Antarctica
Anyone would want a drink if you live somewhere with year-round sub-zero temperatures and over 280 days of snow a year. The tiny bar, located at the Vernadsky Ukrainian Research Base on Galindez Island in Antarctica, has a surprisingly rustic feel thanks to the woodwork done by its former British owners (in a commendable attempt to make it look like a traditional English pub).
The bar is located about 1,500 kilometers from the nearest port in South America, and what it lacks in heat, it makes up for with abundant supplies of vodka.
- Birdsville Hotel, Australia
Australia is one of the hottest places on the planet, and deep in the heart of this unforgiving rust-red landscape lies the Birdsville Hotel, a pub so far removed from civilization that it has become a tourist draw for that very reason.
It is located almost 1600 km from the coast of Brisbane and has been serving weary travelers since 1884. It has stood the test of time and the large collection of various memorabilia behind the bar is a testament to this.
- The Old Forge, Scotland
Although these days you can take a ferry or fly a helicopter, connoisseurs believe that this is a path for wimps. If you want to enjoy this place for real, you have to go there on foot.
The bar is located in the village of Invery on the Noidart Peninsula in Scotland and is known as the most remote pub in the mainland of the UK. The 28 km hike can take a couple of days and crosses the difficult Highlands mountain pass. But the reward of a glass of cold beer and the incredible story behind the ordeal is probably worth it.
- Albatross Bar, Tristan da Cunha
Bar Albatross is located on an island 2800 kilometers from the mainland, in the ominous shadow of an active volcano. Being in such conditions, in a small village on the ocean, people need a drink. And they enjoy it in the small bar Albatross.
Intrepid travelers will have to carefully plan their trip here if they want to spend their time here. The sea passage to Tristan da Cunha takes about a week and takes place only 12 times a year.
- Funken Lodge, Svalbard (Norway)
From the inside, elegant and stylish Funken Lodge looks like it is located in the most ordinary European city. However, if you look at its location, you will immediately be surprised. Funken Lodge is the northernmost bar in the world. It is located on the Arctic island of Svalbard – a place known for its polar bears and the cold.
It’s not the most typical part of the world for a cocktail by the window, but it’s unlikely that anyone will complain about the stunning glacial panoramas you’ll see behind the glass.
- Whale’s Tooth Inn, Pitcairn Islands
The Pitcairn Islands are nearly 5,000 kilometers northeast of New Zealand in the South Pacific and are home to just 50 resilient people. It’s amazing that anyone even lives in a place like this.
Whale’s Tooth Inn in Adamstown, run by Paul Warren, aka Pirate Paul, is a makeshift pub specializing in whale-tooth tequila. If you want to visit here, in addition to the flight, you will have a 32-hour boat trip, since there is no airport on the island.
- O-Zone Bar, Hong Kong
Located in a city of 7 million people, the O-Zone bar in Hong Kong clearly cannot be considered far from civilization. He got into this collection due to the fact that he is at an impressive height of 480 meters.
Located on the 118th floor of the International Trade Center (ICC) building in Kowloon’s Tsim Sha Tsui, O-Zone offers cocktails, Asian tapas, and incredible views of Victoria Harbor.
- Bar Floyd’s Pelican, Jamaica
Floyd’s Pelican Bar looks like a place that really shouldn’t be. In fact, this is a hut on stilts a couple of kilometers from the shimmering waters of the Jamaican coast. Floyd Forbes dreamed all his life of building a magical, free-standing bar in the ocean, and he did it.
Now it’s something of a curious tourist attraction filled with knick-knacks and memorabilia, and it takes about 20 minutes by boat to get there (watch out for sea urchins if you’re going for a swim here).
- The Irish Pub, Nepal
These days, Irish pubs can be found almost everywhere, but this one stands out for its remoteness. Perched at an altitude of 3,450 meters above sea level, the bar in Namche Bazaar leaves Hong Kong’s O-Zone far below.
Inviting intrepid climbers to give themselves a little extra courage before climbing Everest, The Irish Pub offers a wide selection of beers and whiskeys on tap. To get to the pub, you have to make a two-day hike from Lukla airport, and after such a journey, fresh Guinness poured here will definitely please you.
