SO youโ€™re itching for an all-American adventure this year. Weโ€™ve got that covered. 

(๐Ÿ‘€ Reading this before 29 March? Thereโ€™s up to $700 off rn! T&Cs apply obvs). 

But where can you go to partaaaay in the USA? We made this list just for you ๐Ÿ˜˜ย 


Two words: Honky. Tonk.ย 

What are they? 

Bars with country music, open til the early hours. Try Tootsies (iconic), Honky Tonk Central or AJโ€™s Good Time Bar (โ€˜nuff said).  

Why the weird name? Itโ€™s probably onomatopoeia (thx Miss Fisher, Year 9 English ๐Ÿ™) for the sound the music makes. 

Which trip? 

Get Social: USA West to East (or flip it).ย 


Did someone say poooool party?? 


From March to September you can barely walk The Strip without plummeting into a pool (not literally, that would be a hazard ๐Ÿ‘ฎ). Wet Republic at the MGM Grand is one of the wildest. 

(Psst… need brunch to sort you out the morning after? Thank us later.)  

Which trip? 

Get Social: USA West Coast / Get Social: USA West to East or East to Westย

Your fave?

San Francisco

Activate hipster mode and hunt down the Mission Districtโ€™s dive bars. Hit up the 500 Club for cheap drinks and vintage jukebox anthems. 

Dive *what*? 

Dive bars were originally in cellars and basements, so people could โ€˜diveโ€™ in without being noticed. No swimmers required.

New Orleans

Only one of the biggest and bestest parties EVER = Mardi Gras. It celebrates Shrove/Fat Tuesday in Feb or March โ€“ hereโ€™s a preview.  

Dress code? 

Purple, green and gold are traditional but *anything* goes. 


Head to the lower French Quarter to find where Gay Mardi Gras it AT.

Los Angeles

Go all cloak-and-dagger at one of LAโ€™s speakeasy bars. Do a disappearing act inside Black Rabbit Rose (complete with magic shows) or head to Good Times at Davey Wayneโ€™s for retro vibes. 

๐Ÿคซ Shhhh… 

History lesson: back in the 1920s when alcohol was banned in the US, speakeasies were illegal bars that sold booze.
