Restaurant Bars to Visit before you Die

  1. 1. One of the great joys of traveling is having a cocktail at an amazing bar, and we've had some truly unforgettable experiences. Over the years, we've begun to keep a list of establishments that all drinkers should visit at least once in their lifetimes. From a bar in Sweden made completely out of ice to a faux- speakeasy in New York, here are 15 awe-inspiring watering holes that should be on your bucket list. Dukes Bar, London Hidden down a tiny street in London, this famed bar in the Dukes Hotel is a must for Martini and also pibales pibale french lovers. James Bond creator Ian Fleming was a regular; it's where he ordered the classic Martini variant the Vesper, which made an appearance in Casino Royale. Not in the mood for cocktails? The hotel also offers a cognac and cigar garden. PDT, New York The secret telephone-booth entrance to this award-winning East Village speakeasy (the name stands for Please Don't Tell) is worth a visit alone, but the cocktails are world-class. The establishment is overseen by top mixologist and Liquor.com advisory board member Jim Meehan, and managed by cocktail champion Jeff Bell. You'll enter through neighboring hot-dog joint Crif Dogs, and once inside the bar, you can even order dogs and tater tots with your drinks. The Hemingway Bar, Paris While France may be best known for its amazing wines, The Hemingway Bar, located inside the deluxe Hotel Ritz in Paris, has attracted worldwide acclaim for its cocktail menu. All-star bartender Colin Field ran the establishment for decades and developed an international following. The bar (and the hotel) are currently closed for renovations, but they're set to reopen in December of 2014 with Field once again behind the stick. Tiki-Ti, Los Angeles There's no doubt that tiki cocktails are back, but there are just a few surviving original tropical spots left from the heyday of the '50s and '60s. So if you're a rum lover, you'll definitely want to stop by Los Angeles' Tiki-Ti, which serves a mind-boggling selection of nearly 100 cocktails. It was started in 1961 by Ray Buhen, one of the original barmen at Don the Beachcomber's, and now Buhen's son and grandson run the legendary watering hole. Icebar, Jukkasjärvi, Sweden We can practically guarantee that this is the coolest bar around, since it's inside Jukkasjärvi's Icehotel. Yes, the above-the-Arctic-Circle hotel and its bar are almost completely constructed out of ice; even the Martini and Champagne glasses are carved from ice, so you can have your drink in the rocks. The joint is rebuilt anew each winter and will be up and running for the coming season by early December. Source: Shine Yahoo
