The world's craziest bars (part 1)

1.Casa Pocho, Spain

Casa Pocho is a bar in Spain where being rude is not an option but rather a necessity. Co-owned by Bernard Mariusz and Michal Lotocki, the bar offers free beer and tapas to customers who insult its bartenders. Barring severe rude words, the customers are allowed to spew milder insults including jerk and idiot. The inspiration behind it? In the midst of a recession, people need to let off some steam.

2.The Clinic, Singapore

As the name suggests, this bar in Singapore is inspired by a hospital. Its 15,000 square feet is filled with pill-shaped rooms replete with hospital paraphernalia including syringes, drips, test tubes and IV bags, all of which you can drink from. It is, however, pricey.

3.Route 36, Bolivia

La Paz, Bolivia is home to an illegal cocaine bar called Route 36. As you can imagine, the bar sells cocaine lined on empty black CD cases alongside alcohol. Naturally, the bar operates in secret and constantly changes location in fear of complaints from nearby residents, so little is known to those who aren’t in the know. As a result, the bar only accessible through word of mouth and is popular with drug tourists.

4.Alux Lounge, Mexico

Alux Lounge is a cavern bar located in Mexico. While in the cave, you can admire the stalagmites and stalactites of the varying cavernous crevices and enjoy drinks, dinner and dancing.

5.Cova d’en Xoroi, Minorca

Aptly named, the Cave Bar is literally perched on the edge of a cliff in Cala n’Porter, Minorca. Needless to say, the views are amazing.
