Dive into the season with a drink at one of these floating cocktail bars.

Brooklyn Barge, New York City
The only thing better than an NYC hot dog? Washing it down with a Dark and Stormy on the 1940s-era Brooklyn Barge, anchored on the East River with a stupendous Manhattan skyline view. The seasonal summer space is open annually from May through October. 
Floating Cocktail Bar: Jicoo, Tokyo
A futuristic booze cruise at Jicoo in Tokyo.

Jicoo, Tokyo
If you think Tokyo’s bar scene is all about sake and Suntory, try cruising under the Rainbow Bridge while sipping a Shark Bite on a ship straight out of Star Trek. Jicoo (from the Japanese word for “space-time”) plies Tokyo Bay with DJs, dancing, and a design by anime artist Leiji Matsumoto.

Tamesis, London
Spy the London Eye and Houses of Parliament while sipping a Pimm’s on the Thames. Tamesis (pictured above), a colorful, converted 1930s Dutch barge serving classic pub grub in funky-cozy surrounds, is permanently moored on the Albert Embankment.
