Being a small bar fan, i’m always on the look out for unusual or interesting small bars.
So it recently came to my attention that the smallest bar in the world (according to the Guinness Book of Records) is a small Whisky bar in Switzerland.
The aptly named Smallest Whisky Bar on Earth is located in Müstair, Graubünden, Switzerland, and it measures a minuscule 8.53 sqm.
Best of all it features over 200 kinds of Whiskey. Including Scotch, Irish, and Japanese blends, plus sweet, house-made concoctions like whiskey and cream — its menu packs a punch, and so does its owner, Gunter Sommer.
In 2007, he persuaded the Guinness World Records organization to officially change the name of its “Smallest Pub” award to “the Smallest Permanently Licensed Bar in the World” — then promptly snagged the honor himself.
Late last year, the world’s smallest bar did have some serious competition from a British contender who tried to claim their title. Alas, their converted phone box did not have a liquor license or regular opening hours.
