The cavern is more than 10,000 years old, promising you a guaranteed magical evening where you would like to lose yourself sans any fear. The rugged setting, the overgrowing rocks, sets of different lights, and elegant sitting and dining areas further complement the natural setting of the bar.

6. Blue Lagoon Bar, Iceland
Few things could be as relaxing as sipping on a tall drink while taking a nice, long bath. Set at the heart of the Icelandic landscape, the Blue Lagoon Bar is an oasis of relaxation that provides various activities, even including a number of manmade waterfall steam rooms. What left us spellbound, however, was their lagoon bar which provides access to drinks even while bathing. While you could take a break and go inside for more options, it’s highly doubtful you’d want to, as you can sip on wine and beer without even leaving the water.
7. Madame Claude Bar, Berlin
Located in a former brothel, the Madame Claude Bar is one of the most unusual bars in the world, where you have to look up to find the furniture.

Once inside, you will feel transported to the other side of the world. If the feeling of being inside the belly of a fossilized beast, does not seem daunting to you, this is the bar for you!
