Of the many of themed bars you’ll find throughout NYC you’ll quickly discover that some aren’t worth the hype, but if you want to grab a drink at a bar that’s both good and visually exciting you have to check out these five themed bars that are each more unique than the next.
Otto’s Shrunken Head
- 538 East 14th Street
When you walk into Otto’s Shrunken Head you’re walking into a “tiki oasis” with tropical rum drinks that come in elaborate glasses which will instantly make you long for the beach. An escape to the islands during a harsh winter and a perfect place to cool down during the summer.

Why every salon isn’t also a bar is truly a mystery, but it’s what keeps this one going! Enjoy a drink (or several) at Beauty Bar as you get your nails done.

If you’re a fan of sci-fi you’ll love this werewolf-themed bar that’ll give you the chills as soon as you step in. You can grab food and drinks in the Pub Room, play darts in the Dungeon, and relax by a fire in their Werewolf Lounge.
Trailer Park Lounge
- 271 West 23rd Street
Known best for its “kitschy decor,” Trailer Park Lounge will transport you to the center of, well, a trailer park! The tacky but colorful decorations that coat the walls and ceiling of this bar will give you the feel that you’re somewhere in South Florida—and that’s exactly what the owners intended.
- 308 Bleecker Street
It’s not hard to guess what this Bushwick bar’s theme is by the name. The Boobie Trap’s good vibes and provocative decor will bring you in but the awesome staff, incredible happy hour, and fun games will keep you there all night.
