Here at BP DRINKS, we have rounded up a selection of eccentric and unique bars across the whole of the UK that should tickle your creative tastebuds.
The Lost & Found (Leeds)
An avant-garde cocktail bar and restaurant, The Lost & Found is easily one of the quirkiest restaurants in Leeds. With eccentric decor featuring antique furniture, vintage portraits and trinkets galore there is plenty to lose yourself in at this city-centre treasure cove.
The Hockley Arts Club (Nottingham)
A creative space in Nottingham's trendy Hockley, this venue is sure not to disappoint. Serving unusual cocktails and tasty food, this three-floor club has something for everyone.
Walcot House (Bath)
You could be forgiven for thinking this bar only serves up food and drink.. yet, the full experience of the Walcot House is much much more. The venue is a bar, restaurant, dance club, gym, yoga studio and spin class all rolled into one! Definitely, one to check out if you're in the Somerset area.
Serving up award-winning Japanese food, KIBOU is the place to go for authentic sakes and shochu. Head to this town spot to try out their extensive range of cocktails, Japanese beers and whiskeys.
Twenty Twenty Two (Manchester)
A creative space in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter, this unique bar offers all night ping-pong (and beer pong) to those wanting to play. At the weekend it is the place to be for a party, with lots of events making for lots of fun!
Chaplin's Cellar Bar (Bournemouth)
An award-winning independent bar, restaurant & live music venue in the heart of Bournemouth. Chaplin's Cellar Bar's owners have strived to create a unique environment for people to relax and have fun in. Renowned for its delicious food, you'll be able to soak up the rays in the mural-covered garden.
Berry & Rye (Liverpool)
Hidden away in Liverpool's Chinatown district, behind what looks like a derelict shop, lies Berry & Rye. Once you step inside, you realise that you have stepped into a 20th Century styled 'speakeasy' that serves handcrafted cocktails and whiskey with a soundtrack of Blues & Jazz.
Hillhead Bookclub (Glasgow)
Housed in an old cinema, Hillhead Bookclub is home to live music, club nights and retro games arcade. If that wasn't enough, it also has an extensive internationally-inspired cuisine: from classic mac & cheese to a charred mackerel kebab wrap.
CARGO by VERTIGO (Belfast)
Situated in Belfast's iconic Titanic Quarter, you can enjoy a pint of Guinness whilst looking at the landmark Harland and Wolff cranes. With some of the quirkiest seating areas in the area including ski gondolas, Craneview caverns and VIP private container booths.
Gin & Juice (Cardiff)
Just two minutes from Cardiff Castle stands Gin & Juice. By day, they serve up fresh juice and hearty breakfasts. But by night, they serve over 400 gins in their quirky and eccentric bar whose walls - and ceilings - are filled top to bottom with famous faces.
