  • BVI, Virgin Gorda - Saba Rock: great service and the best happy hour in BVI
  • CA, BC, East Thurlow Island Discovery Islands - Shoal Bay Pub: cool place...free pig roast from time to time...pot luck often...music jam sessions...cheap beer...you can use the outdoor pizza oven to bake your own bread...no credit cards....Mark(owner) said to send him a check when we got back to civilization since we carried no cash or checks haha. Everyone should come here once.
  • CH, Hong Kong - Scratch Bar: the best snooker/pool bar around. Expats mostly.
  • FR, Toulon, Le Navigateur:Close to the docks, well within staggering distance. Music is ok if you like disco

  • ID, Bali, Sanur - Ibu Dewi's
  • IE, Doolin - O'Conner's Pub: Lots of good Irish music, good people and lots of fun. Downside - You'll have to drop the hook in Galway and figure out how to get to Doolin. Then again Galway has a few good pubs too.

  • NZ, Auckland - The Dogs Bollocks
  • PT, Azores, Horta - Peter's Bar: it seems to be slipping on the staff quality/cleanliness side since the old man died., but still a hard drinking fun place with live music and a mix of locals and folk doing 'The Crossing'. Tall Tales and swinging lanterns.
  • PT, Azores, Horta - Petes Cafe (may be a dupe from above)
  • SG - Smokey's BBQ:great service and Texas BBQ, good wine and craft beer selection
  • SP, Alicante - Penelope's: nice place for a beer and to watch people, close to the marina.
  • TH, Bangkok - Morning Night Bar: snooker/pool for the middle aged crowd. Will serve you well after you fall off the bar stool but never any problems. Great table service and they rack up the balls for you quite quickly.

Pincher Peter's Pub in Little Harbor, Abaco

Lake Superior Brewing Co. Grand Marais, Michigan. Every day looks like a special episode of Duck Dynasty.
