Here at the BarWhiz Blog we’ve traveled the world and came up with a list of the top 21 bars from around the world. Along the way we saw the wackiest bar stools and the weirdest restrooms. Today we would like to share with you the top 10 most unique bar concepts:
#1. Steampunk Bar
The Edison in Los Angeles is styled after the era of science and invention. It seems to be stuck somewhere between past present and future with vintage styled burlesque shows playing on a regular basis.
#2. Hospital Concept Bar

#3. Frozen Bars
Ice bars have been popping up all over the world in such countries as Canada, USA, Tokyo, London and even Africa. The concept is simple enough everything is made from ice. The chairs are ice, the walls are ice, the bar is ice and yes, even the glassware is ice. Most ice bars do also include a free parka upon entry.
#4. The Speakeasy
Ahhh the speakeasy, if it weren’t for these secret bars installed during prohibition we might not have made it through. The concept behind this bar is not to know about it. Most speakeasies are unmarked and may even require a few knocks in the right places – difficult to find but definitely worth the effort.

#8. Upside-down Bar
