Finding Great Bars in Dublin

Finding Great Bars in Dublin

If you are planning a holiday and looking for a great bar, you will be spoiled for choice in Ireland. Ireland is notorious for its drinking culture and there is nothing like sitting in a traditional pub drinking the black stuff, Guinness that is. Planning a holiday can be a stressful task, from booking flights, accommodation and annual holiday insurance, so you deserve to unwind and relax in a bar on arrival at your destination. If Dublin is your city of choice, I am sure that your expectations are high. Here’s a quick guide to finding great bars in Dublin.

Johnnie Foxes

Johnnie Foxes is famous for being Ireland’s highest pub. Steeped high in the Wicklow Mountains just outside Dublin city, it is the perfect place for a tourist to taste Irish tradition. Enjoy live traditional Irish music on Fridays and Saturdays and a dedicated Irish dancing show afterwards. To complement the great entertainment enjoy an array of traditional Irish dishes locally sourced. Since, the bar is located a bit outside of the city you may be worried about transportation. Fear not, there is a regular shuttle bus departing from the city centre for a low fee so you won’t have to worry about huge taxi fares coming to and from the pub.

Vintage Cocktail Club

The Vintage Cocktail Club located in Temple Bar is the perfect location for a quaint night out or a first date. Hidden away in a Temple Bar alleyway it can be difficult to find and this isn't accidental. Most nights you will need a reservation for admittance but its worth it once you walk in, to be welcomed to a bar that resembles somewhere in 1920s New York. Expect the highest quality service, the tastiest cocktails and the most comfortable, glamorous atmosphere in Dublin’s finest hidden gem.

5 Essential Bars For Your First Visit to New Orleans

5 Essential Bars For Your First Visit to New Orleans

Everyone knows New Orleans is a drinking city. It’s built into our cultures through a number of festivities, holidays, and, frankly, any other excuse to indulge in the sweet elixir known as alcohol.

One of the greatest means of encouraging this happy pastime comes through our plethora of bars and watering holes, which come in every shape, size and atmosphere possible. Some are big, some are small. Some cater to old workers, some to college age students. Some target locals, and some target tourists. Whatever the case, though, there are certain bars that everyone should visit, regardless of age or excuse to drink.

Here are five essential bars that you must try when visiting New Orleans:

Pat O’Briens

Most likely the first bar any tourist will get ushered to, Pat O’Briens is a staple of the Bourbon Street bar scene, and for good reason. Not only does it own claim to New Orleans’ most famous cocktail, the Hurricane, it also contains a variety of bars and atmospheres, each representing a unique aspect of the historic city. Highlights include the Piano Bar and the iconic outdoor courtyard, which can only be seen in New Orleans.

Carrousel Bar

What makes the Carrousel Bar iconic isn’t that it is located in one of the most beautiful hotels in the city, the Monteleone, although that does add to its grandeur. What makes it special is the bar, which will throw you for a loop, both literally and figuratively. Like a typical carrousel, the physical bar and bar stools spin slowly in a circle while the inner part of the bar remains in place. The drinks are top-notch, which adds to the disorienting atmosphere that can only be achieved through a spinning bar.

Sports Bars in Chelsea

Sports Bars in Chelsea

Thanks to Chelsea’s close proximity to Madison Square Garden (home to the Rangers and the Knicks,) as well as its closeness to the now sports-focused Chelsea Piers, this art-centric, West-Side neighborhood is far more prone to accommodating a multitude of sports fans than you might expect.  As such, it’s a bonafide hot-spot for sports bars these days—here are five of our favorites.


This isn’t just our favorite sports bar in Chelsea—it’s one of our favorites in the entire city. With three floors to choose from and a multitude of LED HD televisions, you’ll never have to watch your favorite hockey, basketball, football, baseball or soccer game alone, ever again. This bar has such a great rep with the international sporting community, it recently got a visit from Sir Alex Ferguson—manager of Britain’s most famous soccer team, Manchester United. Oh, and by the way? Smithfield’s Happy Hour is all day, every day, until 8 p.m.—it doesn’t get any better than that.

The Flying Puck

You can probably guess from the name which sport The Flying Puck favors most—hockey, of course! This place is Rangers fan heaven—the hottest spot for hockey-lovers to hang out before and after Madison Square Garden games (it’s literally half a block away from the arena, so extraordinarily convenient) and the next-best place to watch all of the action, as it happens, if you couldn’t get a ticket for the game in time.  Far better then watching at home! The drink specials in here are all hockey-themed as well—we recommend the Penalty Shot.

Some of the Best Cocktail Bars in NYC

Some of the Best Cocktail Bars in NYC

Bartenders in New York have a reputation of being experts in cocktail crafting. Cocktail bars in New York are ever competing to see which bar gets to pour its customers with the best stuff. The bars are a place where you can get both old timely drinks and the hush vibes. The first thing you need to think about when planning a trip to the Big Apple is finding a hotel in NYC (in Sweden they say hotell New York) that suits your budget. Then you need to make a good online research and find out which are some of the best bars that you want to visit. To help you out with that below is list of some of the best cocktail bars in New York City that you should consider as your next libation destination.

Pouring Ribbons

Housed at 225 Avenue B, second floor, this cocktail bar is owned by some of the top bartenders in the city. Run by Toby Maloney, Alchemy Consulting, Jason Cott and Troy Sidle, there is no doubt that the Pouring Ribbon is a talent powerhouse. The cocktail bar is found on top of a famous liquor store and this dose provides its customers with a refreshing dosage of unmatched unpretentiousness. The décor of the bar doesn’t seem to make any references to the usual vintage speakeasy trend. Pouring Ribbons largely focuses on the experience of its guests with a two scaled cocktail menu; spirituous to refreshing and adventurous to comforting. You can try their Closing Bell – Palo Cortado, Appelton Reserve Rum, Penunsula Sherry, Green Chartreuse and Batavia Arrack.

Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog

The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog sits on 30 Water Street and is one of the newly established cocktail bars in the city. While New York City seems to comprise numerous speakeasies nowadays, this bar seems to take its visitors to earlier periods as it reinterprets tipples dating back to the 19th century. The main floor of the bar serves craft beer and classic drinks while the more genteel attractive lounge upstairs offers cocktail seated service. The cocktail menu offered by this bar is quite handsome and the booklet menu has over 70 mixed drinks ranging from juleps to cobblers, daisies and fixes, all of which have been researched painstakingly and history has never been as awesome as in this bar.

Evelyn Drinkery

The Evelyn Drinkery is yet another bustling scene in New York City for cocktail parties. The cozy haunt features a spacious attractive backroom and has several categories of drink menu. The spiked phosphates are otherwise referred to as boozy, long drinks, egg creams, twisted classics and house cocktails. Craft beer and daily punches are yet other liquid offerings that you can find at the Evelyn Drinkery. It is one of the best cocktail bars in NYC to go for a date especially if you try their NYC cream that includes cacao milk, 1796 Santa Teresa, seltzer and chocolate syrup.


The Attaboy bar continues the common trend of a bartender becoming a bar owner. Formerly known as the Milk & Honey, Attaboy was opened recently by Michael Mcllroy and Sam Ross, who were both Milk & Honey veterans. Top-notch cocktail drinks are available on request and the bar actually has no menu as such. With louder music and brighter lighting, the Attaboy doesn’t require guests to make a reservation.

Best Bars in Chicago – Unique and Quirky Edition

Best Bars in Chicago – Unique and Quirky Edition

When it’s Friday night (or maybe even Tuesday; I won’t judge) and you’re looking to have a good time in Chicago, you can’t go wrong with any of the standard bars and clubs in the area—when you combine music, alcohol, and fun people, it’s hard not to have a good time wherever you may be.

But sometimes you just want to do something different. Sometimes you want to escape the same old Top 40 songs and play arcade games like you’re 10 years old again. Luckily, there are a number of places in Chicago that let you do just that.

Emporium Arcade Bar

Emporium has 20+ beers on tap, dozens of whiskeys, and 41 different arcade games all under one roof. Need I say more?

Tokens are 25 cents each and every game only costs one token. Stop by and relive the glory of your childhood years with the increased level of difficulty that only alcohol can provide.

Big Joe’s Pub

On the surface, Big Joe’s may just look like your average bar. And on most nights of the week, you might be right in making that assumption. But one night a week, Big Joe’s Pub hosts an event that you’ll want to be a part of at last once before you leave the city: turtle racing.

Best Cocktail Bars in Oslo, Norway

Best Cocktail Bars in Oslo, Norway

There is a certain classy feel to Norway that inspires you to dress that bit smarter and take a little bit more time over your makeup and hair. The country is immaculate and something of its appearance always seems to rub off on its visitors. This is truer than ever when you visit the capital city of Oslo as the place is an unbelievably tidy and attractive city, with smart and interesting architecture and a wonderful history. So when you have a night out in Oslo you always want to pamper yourself and make the evening a refined experience and there is no better way to do this than at one of the city’s many fantastic cocktail bars.

Bar Boca might lack a little in size with only enough room for 5 tables but it makes up for it with its marvelous 50’s style décor and great cocktail menu. You should expect standing room only as this is a firm favorite with locals and tourists alike, the friendly atmosphere and cozy surroundings are the perfect place to start your night on the town.

For a bit more room try Hell’s Kitchen and here you can also order a bite to eat to enjoy with your drink. Pizza and cocktails might not sound like the perfect combination but they actually do complement each other quite nicely. This is a trendy place to be that is always popular with the locals, although it does tend to attract a younger crowd. That said the natives are always friendly and if you fancy making some new friends with a bit of local knowledge then this is definitely a good place to start looking.

Whilst we are talking about trendy we have to mention The Sense. This 2 storey cocktail serving wonder bar has award winning bar staff that really knows how to shake a positive drinking experience. So if you like your martini shaken and not stirred then this has to be the right place to order it. Live music is often on the menu and you might get a wonderful rendition of your favorite tune played on the electric piano and accompanied by bongos. They are even available for birthday parties and corporate events and that makes The Sense.

The pizza and cocktail theme continues at Yatzi; a place that describes itself as a club/restaurant. Comfy settees and a happy party vibe are everything here and resident DJs mix the weekday tunes then hand the decks over to guest artists at the weekends. So if you like a Margarita pizza with your, urm, Margarita cocktail in a big comfy seat whilst enjoying the latest tunes then you might have to throw the dice and shout Yatzi.

There are many more places to try and get a Tom Collins or a Screwdriver in Oslo and many of the pubs selling beer and wine will also rustle up a mean cocktail. So after a long day sightseeing around one of Europe’s finest capital cities what better to do stay in your nice hotel in Oslo (in Norwegian they say hotell Oslo) or take the weight off and enjoy a shaken surprise?

Best Bars in Anchorage

Alaska may be the Last Frontier, but Anchorage still has a wide variety of bars that will satisfy even the thirstiest of drinkers.

Chillkoot Charlie’s

If you’re looking for a late night party, Chillkoot Charlie’s is your place. They offer a wide variety of themed bars in-house, so you can get your sawdust-on-the-floor fix at the South Long Bar or chill your vodka on the ice counter at the Ice Bar. Or check out the Bird House—an exact replica of a bar from Bird Creek that burned down—complete with lingerie stapled to the wall. Cheap drinks and dueling pianos. You can’t go wrong.

Club Paris

For a special night out, try Club Paris. It’s an Anchorage institution and has been in business since the 1950s. When you slice into a four-inch-thick filet mignon, you’ll understand why they cut and age the meat in-house. Oh, and the booze—there’s no better place to get a classic Martini or Manhattan. They only take reservations starting at 9am the day of, so get up early to get the best table.

F Street Station

By far one of the most popular bars in Anchorage, F Street Station is always packed. It’s a favorite with pilots on layover, plus they have an enormous block of self-serve Tillamook cheddar. Yum! Beware the weekends when the frat boys invade and amateur hour takes over. Or try the signature “trash can” drink to relive your own amateur drinking days and wipe all your worries away.

Humpy’s Great Alaskan Alehouse

You may have seen this Anchorage favorite on Man vs. Food. From Trivia Tuesday to the live local music, Humpy’s has the Cheers vibe–they make everyone feel like a local. If you’re into competitive eating, try your hand at the Kodiak Arrest. New beers are added weekly and they feature Alaskan beer flights. For extra fun, cheer the Humpy’s team on at the Outhouse Races during the Fur Rondy Festival in late February.
