Finding the best bar in a new city

Every time I visit a new city, I like to try and find the best bar. This is an extremely subjective topic as there are obviously a million amazing bars in every city. I really like to find the bar that is either 1) unique 2) historical or 3) just really fun. Here are a few of my favorites.

1. Austin, TX- The Driskill Bar. The bar in the Driskill dates back to 1186 and is in the oldest hotel in Austin. The bar has a beautiful copper ceiling, huge couches and unique chairs. They also make a few special Austin-centric drinks.

2. Cape Town- Cape Grace Bar. In Cape Town the Cape Grace hotel has an underground whiskey bar. It's a great place to try a new whiskey and see a little bit of the Cape Town vibe. It didn't seem like there were many tourists in the bar, despite its location within a hotel.

3. Barcelona- Chupitos. This is definitely a bar you only go to once ;), but it is unique enough that you have to experience this Spanish shot bar.

In Barcelona, this bar has hundreds of shots available to order. Your bartender can definitely help you pick out one you will like. It's worth going for the unique experience and for the laughs.

What are your favorite bars around the world? I would love to know where I should hit up next!
