Bars and pubs have a particular vibe on Sundays. They're more relaxed than at any other time of the weekend, but the crowd is more committed to being there. It's a good combo.

Visit one of these spots in the closing stages of the weekend and you might be surprised by how much fun you can have. These places aren't just open – they keep the good vibes flowing with live music or DJs, drink specials and maybe even a free barbeque.
