Vacations call for luxuries you don't get at home. At home, you have to cruise to a local patio bar to feel like you're on vacay, and even then they are often facing a parking lot with grocery shoppers going by on the sidewalk. This is hardly inspiring.
Let's have a look at some unusual swim-up bars and eateries that make you feel like you're on a real getaway.

Like to gamble? How about Las Vegas's Tropicana? It has a swim up blackjack bar. Not sure how you carry your chips, but hey have a cocktail and figure it out.
