Crash land at Last RitesSan Francisco, USA
Tropicana meets goth meets Polynesian noir. These are the vibes we get from San Francisco’s Last Rites, a drinking den that takes the ‘more is more’ approach. No exaggeration – it’s like a plane crash in the jungle. The bar has been built using the body of an actual aircraft. Then there are the plane seats turned into bar stools, and a parachute dangling from the roof. Veering from the aeronautical theme are three-metre-tall stone skull statues and giant banyan tree roots.
The cocktails don’t stray from the dark jungle theme, with fruity, rum-based concoctions boasting names like Valley of the Shadow and Avian Evolution filling the list. It’s kind of like being in an episode of Lost, but with tastier drinks and a better plot twist.
