1. Beetle House NYC, New York City, NY: A Tim Burton themed bar? Yes, please! The newly-opened Beetle House NYC in NYC鈥檚 East Village is a gin-soaked tribute to the quirky filmmakers and his oh-so-peculiar films. This bar and grill serves up drinks like We Come in Peace (MarsAttacks-inspired Stoli salted caramel vodka and rum chata cocktail), This Is Halloween (The Nightmare Before Christmas cocktail with pumpkin, apple, ginger and cinnamon) and the Fleet Street Martini (Sweeney Todd). For grub, you can dive into entrees like the Edward Burger Hands (Edward Scissorhands) and their Eggs Skellington (The Nightmare Before Christmas).

2. Trader Sam鈥檚 Enchanted Tiki Bar, Anaheim, CA: The Passionate Python, the Mosquito Mojito and the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Rum are just a few of the tropical delights mixed up at the Disneyland Hotel鈥檚 tiki bar. Reminiscent of a tiki dive bar, this UBER popular hot spot has all sorts of little surprises, like slowly sinking bar stools to special drink effects (order the Shipwreck on the Rocks and you鈥檒l see, oh, you鈥檒l see).

3. SafeHouse, Milwaukee, WI: It鈥檚 a safe bet that ordering a martini 鈥 shaken, not stirred (ALA 007) 鈥 will be met with mad props at this spy鈥搕hemed bar. To gain entry to this hangout for would-be operatives, you must give the doorman a password (or do oddball stunts to get in). Throughout the restaurant, you鈥檒l find closed-circuit televisions, so that you can witness the goofiness that people perform to get in. There鈥檚 spy-related memorabilia all around and various rooms to explore, plus a full menu fit for secret agents, so you鈥檒l be entertained and fed while you sip your cocktail of choice.

4. Mutt鈥檚 Canine Cantina, Dallas, TX: Grab a drink with man鈥檚 best friend. No, no, not one of your human buddies, but with your pup. At Mutt鈥檚 Canine Cantina, you can down a bottle of Lone Star or sip a glass of Chardonnay in their very dog鈥揻riendly beer and wine garden. Not only do they serve up adult beverages, but they sell food for you and your fur baby. Hot dog! (Literally, they sell hot dogs for all).

5. Brooklyn Athletic Club, Houston, TX: First off, the Brooklyn Athletic Club is not in Brooklyn 鈥 it鈥檚 in Houston. Second, they use the term 鈥渁thletic鈥 loosely. There are no free weights, elliptical machines or saunas here. Rather, bocce ball, ping pong and a putting green (AKA things you can do with a drink in hand) are the sports of choice here. Along with their hand鈥揷rafted cocktails and craft beers, you can indulge in some Frito pie or fried jalapeno chips to refuel if your table tennis game gets a bit competitive.

6. Stay Classy New York, New York City, NY: Yes, a Will Ferrell bar exists, and man, is it popular. People line up to grab one of the signature cocktails such as the You鈥檙e My Boy Blue, Frank the Tank, and Did We Just Become Best Friends? 鈥 all inspired by lines from Ferrell鈥檚 extensive oeuvre. And the Ferrell worship doesn鈥檛 stop there. Stay Classy New York hosts some rambunctious Will Ferrell trivia nights and Elf themed holiday parties.

7. The Wreck Bar, Fort Lauderdale, FL: Have a thing for mermaids? If so, you need to run (or better yet, swim really fast), not walk, to The Wreck Bar. Located in the vintage B Hotel and Resorts (near the Yankee Clipper Hotel), this tropical鈥搕hemed bar features windows that look into the hotel鈥檚 pool, where you鈥檒l see a weekend show of 鈥渓iving mermaids鈥 doing their thing. And yes, your mermaid tights will be definite crowd pleasers.

8. Donny Dirk鈥檚 Zombie Den, Minneapolis, MN: If you can鈥檛 get enough of The Walking Dead, Shaun of the Dead or The Night of the Living Dead, then you should get your undead self on over to Donny Dirk鈥檚 kitschy Zombie Den. The Corpse Reviver, Gorefied and The Damned are a few of the libations they serve up. Warning: It鈥檚 a bit creepy to have the zombie heads on the walls watching you drink. Zombie-hunters welcome.

9. The Edison, Los Angeles, CA: Thomas Edison, the inventor of many things, including the electric light bulb, is the highlight of this bar in the hot DTLA neighborhood. Fittingly located in the first private power plant, bartenders here pour vintage cocktails and themed originals (drawing inspo from famous authors and such) in a luxurious 1920s-style lounge. There鈥檚 even a winged Absinthe Fairy that wheels an absinthe cart around the club.

10. Wilson and Wilson Detective Agency, San Francisco, CA: This is a speakeasy within a speakeasy. The Wilson and Wilson Detective Agency is inside the popular 鈥渟peakeasy鈥 Bourbon and Branch. To gain entry, you give them a secret password (which you receive when you make your reservation). Then, you鈥檙e presented with a case file and the drink menu, which totally gives you that whole detective/Sam Spade vibe.
