These wild watering holes—lodged underwater, built within a tree, or carved of ice—make for memorable happy hours from Scandinavia to Antarctica.

Floyd’s Pelican Bar, Jamaica

5 of 13

If someone collected masses of driftwood and palm fronds, nailed them all together, and stuck the resulting structure on stilts out in the ocean, it would likely look like Floyd’s Pelican Bar. At Floyd’s, which sits about a mile off the southwestern coast of Jamaica in Parottee Bay, many of the swimsuit-sporting drinkers stand around waist-deep in the water (the joint is short on seating). A couple of local fishermen will give you a lift out to the bar from Parottee Beach for a few bucks. Swimming back is not recommended.

What to Order: A Pelican Perfection, made with lime juice, rum, ginger beer, and sugar.
