7 Best Night Bars around the Globe

Whether youre a globetrotter by passion or profession, you know that the best thing you can expect from any city is its nightlife. This is why weve gathered the best night clubs around the globe. If you land in any of these countries, dont forget to give their prime bars a try.

Bar Isabel in Argentina

7 Best Night Bars around the Globe

The two most talked-about bars in Argentina is the Bar Isabel located in Buenos Aires, within easy reach of those who are already in the capital.

If youre all for the glitz and the glamour, you might want to drop by this watering hole. Just make sure that youre dressed to kill as well. Chic and smart is the way to go here. The interior of the bar closely resembles its next door neighbor, the Casa Cruz, probably because both were designed by fun loving Chilean Juan Santa Cruz.

Here, youll be greeted by a 70s-inspired interior. With disco as the bars running theme, the lights on the banks of the ceiling pulsate to the beat of house music. While youre here, you would want to try out the Bamboo, which is dry sherry mixed with orange bitters and vermouth.

The Emerald Peacock in Australia

7 Best Night Bars around the Globe

In Melbourne, youll find the Emerald Peacock luring droves of night life cravers. This is probably because the bar is fashionable enough without being too “suity” . The adage “birds of the same feather” is expressed in the bar as well, as an avian mural welcomes loyal patrons before they reach the lounging area.

The rest of the bar has, as the name suggests, a peacock-themed wall paper right above the booths. Guests can enjoy Merbournes spectacular skyline while theyre cozying up in bar. However, most patrons really prefer most patrons go to after a hard days work. When youre at the Emerald Peacock, the first thing you should check is the Big Cocks page in their menu. Here, youll find an interesting line of drinks, including the Taj Iced Tea which is Bombay Sapphire mixed with lemon juice, tea, sugar, and crème de peche.

Decollete in China

7 Best Night Bars around the Globe

Adding sophistication where its least expected is the Decollete in China. This bar sits in a building which was formerly used as an electric and machinery plant in Beijing. It is the first real champagne bar in the capital ever since China outlawed sleaze bars. Now, gentlemen can only enter the bar with a lady. The Decollete attracts hoards of urban Beijing locals.

The bar is pretty perfect for dates as well. With the intimate interior, complete with candle lights and fancy tables, the bar has a certain Belle Epoque vibe. The walls are also intricately hand-painted with floral patterns and the room lined with plush, velvet banquettes.

If youre wondering what to order from their menu, the patrons favorite is Potion#5. This is a delicate mixture of gin, violet liqueur, house champagne and lemon.
