Imagine you’re on a tropical beach in Thailand, getting rowdy celebrating Full Moon. You’re dancing to the moonlight, feeling those tropical vibes and drinking out of buckets. Now sadly you might not be able to duplicate the same experience in Vancouver, but hey, there is one aspect this city does offer — Thai style bucket drinks. Not only does Vancouver have drinks in the form of buckets, we also have tons of different fishbowl and punch bowl drinks that you might not even have known about.

Vancouver has quite a few varieties of fishbowl and bucket drinks. You can drink out of a real pineapple or a copper pineapple. You can even have your drink served with a sparkler on top. Missing summer? Instead of floating in the pool on a pink flamingo, you can drink out of a copper flamingo — a need you didn’t even know you had until now.

To make it even better (because this city knows how to fulfill our Insta desires) rest assured that the drinks will be pretty enough for your feed.

Bigger is better right? So upsize your drink this weekend and try one of these bucket or fishbowl drinks in Vancouver. These next level and next sized drink bowls might just get you tipsy in record time.

So remember this list for your next night out, pregame or when you're just trying to decide what to do. Share (or you each drink it all to yourself) these bucket and fishbowl drinks with your crew in Vancouver:
