If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, the Bar Roulette web app uses Uber and Yelp to send you to a highly rated bar in your area. The trick is that you don’t know where you’re going until you get there.
The oldest freestanding bar in Vegas is Atomic Liquors, built in 1952, back when you could climb onto the roof and watch atomic bombs explode at desert test sites 60 miles away. If you sit long enough at its expansive bar, chances are Kent Johns will pull up a stool next to you and tell you about it.
If this website is to be believed, come 2014, Lexington, Kentucky could easily replace Orlando, Florida as the most popular vacation spot in the country. Because next spring the city will be host to the nation's first indoor throwing star range and sake bar. Because nothing goes better with rice wine than a throwable…
It's your Festivus party; you should be out there schmoozing with guests, not stuck in the kitchen pouring drinks. With these mechanical mixologists at your side, you'll be able to pour a professional cocktail and still have time to be the life of the party.
Eating at home is a joy for many reasons—not least of which that pants are not required for entry—but if you're going to go out (and you have the cashola), why not make it an evening to remember at a place that's as well-designed as it is delicious? Like, say, one of the winner's of this year's independent Restaurant…
There have been plenty of parodies exploring the creepier possibilities of Google Glass, so it should come as no surprise that it's already been banned in a Seattle bar, even though it's not even out yet.
Some might say the only useful tools on a Swiss Army Knife are the bottle opener and corkscrew. And for those people there's now a multitool designed specifically for alcoholics that incorporates ten useful bartending tools into a single pocket-friendly
If you completely avoid the bar scene because you're tired of spending your nights dealing with creeps, you'll sincerely wish this bar stool—crafted from an F-4 Phantom ejector seat—were fully functional.

This mechanical wet bar—called the "Green Bar" for its structural reliance on mostly recycled wood—is the work of self-taught mixed-media artist Dale Mathis.

The most cleverest geek nightclub sign you'll ever see, compliments of San Francisco's Red Devil Lounge.
Good cell service is hard to come by, especially in NYC, but five bars won't do much good when you're DEAD. Some New Yorkers are convinced that the AT&T and T-Mo antennas on their roof are bringing the building down.
Steve Jobs met with Russian president Dmitry Medvedev to talk about his country's future Silicon Valley. Steve also gave him an iPhone 4, and demonstrated a really neat antenna trick too. Magical.
Here I was, thinking Europeans were meant to be classier than Americans—but have you ever heard of a Rectum Bar outside of Vienna, Austria? Do you even know what a rectum is?
I like going out to bars and everything, but I think I'd like it more if I could nerdily acquire fake trophies and points while doing so. Finally, my dream has become a reality with Foursquare.
It won't turn your pad into a full-fledged sports bar, but Cal Spas' L205 sure is trying. The L205 marries a full wooden bar with a flip-down, 15-inch LCD that'll let you keep an eye on the game as you pour your whiskey.

bCODE is a new SMS service that allows you to buy drinks for a friend via a SMS or text message. It's a pretty awesome idea, but there are some major flaws. First and foremost, the service costs a ton, for the consumer and the bar. Mainly because the bar has to install special scanning equipment. It also sucks for the…
