55 Eccentric Bars

From Legal Cocaine Bars to Water-Only Bars

— November 18, 2009 — Lifestyle
Bars have become a cultural phenomenon. A way of life, they bring people together in celebration or the comforting of an individual in tough times. Although not all bars are like ‘Cheers,’ where everyone knows your name, it doesn’t mean that that’s the end all, be all of these social structures. This collection of eccentric bars proves that.

Now there are eccentric bars for just about anything and everything, not just alcohol. You can find everything from sushi bars to cosmetic cocktail bars.
