Talk about having a beer in unique places! It appears that a bar literally inside the trunk of an enormous and ancient (estimated to be 7,000 years old; older than the Pyramids of Egypt) Baobab tree has tourists flocking from far and wide just to drink a cold beer in the amazing pub (which is complete with a dart board, telephone, electrical lighting and a bell to signify last call). The bar has been fashioned inside a massive 72 foot high tree (with a circumference of 155 ft) in a garden in Limpopo, South Africa.

According to the Canadian blog Life in the Fast Lane,

The trunk is hollow, but its walls are still up to 6.5 feet thick [and] the tree has its own cellar, with natural ventilation to keep the beer cold.

More than 7,000 visitors come from all over the world to see the enormous Baobab tree every year and have a drink in its pub, which has 13 foot high ceilings and comfortably seats up to 15 people.

But don’t worry, the tree surprisingly wasn’t actually harmed in the creation of the pub. According to Heather van Heerden, the owner of Sunland Farm where the tree and pub are located, when Baobab trees are more than 1,000 years old, they hollow naturally.
