    The Swizzle Inn’s bold façade is as brightly coloured as its cocktails. Its eclectic interior consists of graffitied walls, business cards, and dollar bills poking from the beams. You can also check out books left by previous patrons, many of which date back to the inn’s early days.

    The Hog Penny

    One of Hamilton’s oldest licensed premises

    The Hog Penny opened as a pub in 1957, but it originally served as a meat slaughterhouse and bicycle shop selling penny-farthings. This might explain the establishment’s unusual name. The owners claim the pub was the inspiration for the long-running US sitcom Cheers, though the interior more closely resembles a classic British tavern.

    Food-wise, The Hog Penny serves nachos, chicken pot pie, fish and chips, prime rib sliders and shepherd’s pie. We highly recommend the cocktails, especially the Happy's Famous Rum Swizzle, Hog Penny Bloody Mary, and Banana Rama.

    Location: 5 Burnaby St, Hamilton, Bermuda

    Open: Daily from noon to 4.30 pm and from 5.30 pm to 10.30 pm
