What to See
If you’re after a view, they don’t get much better than this. Skybar, perched on the 63rd floor of The Dome at State Tower, is one of the highest open-air bars in the world and it is, in a word, amazing.
The open-air bar is lit up and sexy, the cocktails are mega and the view over the city, watching the madness of Bangkok come alive at night. This is Asia at its swanky, sky high best.
Halfway between Black River and Treasure Beach, and a quarter mile out from the Jamaican shoreline, you’ll float across Pelican Bar. Native Jamaican Floyde Forbes dreamt up this paradise a few years back and he can be found in here most nights cooking up pots of rice and serving ice cold beers to his drinkers.
Robinson Crusoe eat your heart out. Seriously, it’s a bar, on stilts, in a shack, in the
middle of the sea… it doesn’t get more idyllic
than this. Someone bring us a boat.
If you’re looking for a party then you’d better hop on a plane to Beirut, and to BO18 to be precise. This bar lurks in what used to be a bunker, under a car park, and good luck finding it as there’s no door.You’ll wander about this car park until you spot the bouncer, then climb in through a cellar door and welcome to the party.
It’s an after party kinda place so it kicks off at 4am when they open up the roof
(aka car park floor) and you’re staring
at the sky,just in time to watch the sun rise.
This 19th Century Irish tavern is well worth a trip to the Big Apple, and also a trip back in time it would seem. This place is rowdy and embodies the conviviality of old New York and the Irish-American tradition. If you need to do a little grocery shopping then you’re in luck as the back of the room doubles up as a vintage grocery store.
Upstairs you’ll find a little cocktail parlour with a bar
and an epic cocktail list manned by an ex Milk
and Honey mixologist. Who said you can’t have it all?
When you’re totally partied out from Gili Trawangan, hop on a boat to Gili Air and straight to Scallywags for a totally tropical paradise bar experience. With fresh seafood BBQs every night, cocktails mixed up from the island’s local fruit and spirits, and cushioned cabanas on the beach, you will never want to leave.
Good news is that you don’t actually have to,
the uber chilled party vibe at Scallywags never
really ends, and before you know it you’re
sipping on Pina Coladas and watching the sunrise
with the local islanders.
