Sipping on your favorite booze brand in an atrabilious state of mind and sinking into the beauty of nature on some faraway land might just be a vivid means of turning your rain into sunshine. On the contrary, not all people drink in sorrow, a handsome lot of us drink to enhance the fun of everything. Either way, you truly deserve to explore the best bars in the world.
