Lets face it, if you're going on holiday, you're probably going to be heading to a few bars along the way. Here are 5 of the more 'intresting' places yourself can go for a few drinks, from hot springs to underground caverns. 

Blue Lagoon Bar, Iceland

Iceland's blue lagoon pools are a big draw for tourists. The hot springs are the perfect place to immerse your self in the ethereal Icelandic landscapes; the relaxing nature is heightened further when you take advatnage of the Blue Lagoon bar. Simply swim up to the bar and order from the selection of smoothies and juices, beer and wine. The Blue Lagoon Bar is certainly the life of luxury. 

Alux Restaurant & Lounge, Mexico

Built underground inside a million-year-old cave, you'll find the Alux Restaurant & Lounge. One of the most unique bars in Mexico, across the caves multiple rooms there is a large main restaurant, along with other rooms which like a cocktail lounge and a wine grotto, playing music lit up in neon lights, creating a vivid atmosphere of sound and colour.  The restaurant specializes in seafood, but it also covers lots of traditional Mexican dishes and Mayan food.

Cova d’en Xoroi, Menorca

Built inside the side of a cliff which is said to have once been a pirate's hideout spot, Cova d’en Xoroi bar is one of the most unique and popular attractions in Cala'n' Porter. The views provided from the cliffs are spectacular  - especially at sunset - and the bar has in-house DJ's and accoustic musicians providing laid-back dance music to go with the selection of cocktails, beers and wines on offer. 

Depeche Mode Baar, Estonia

For any fans of alternative rock legends Depeche Mode, the Depeche Mode Baar (or DM Bar) in Tallin is the place for you. Opened in 1999 by a man who was (obviously) a mega-fan of the band, the bar only plays Depeche Mode music, and its walls are scattered with memorabilia and TV's playing the band's live concerts. DM bar has gone from strength to strength in recent years, thanks mainly to Instagram and Facebook serving as inspiration for visitors. Just remember, don't wear a New Order t-shirt.

Giger Bar, Switzerland

The Giger Bar in Gruyères is the masterwork of Swiss artist H. R. Giger, whose design for 'The Alien' in Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic earned him an Oscar. The Swiss bar is similarly designed to much of the set in the film, with tentacle-like structures stretching across the ceiling and other creepy sculptures attached to the walls. Sitting in the bar feels like you're amongst some long lost civilisation, it's certainly a bit creepy.
