Imbibing in the Southernmost Bar in the World – The Vernadsky Research Base


Enjoyed a shot of vodka with the BJJ Cavewife once we reached the southernmost bar on the planet!

This bar is located in the Vernadsky Research Base, a station that Ukraine purchased form the British for the sum of 1 pound located on the Antarctic peninsula.

While I mentioned previously that I rarely drink alcohol, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do so in this special place.  Apparently the vodka is made on-site… from what I don’t know…. and there are two ways to procure it.

The first is to pay $3 per shot.  The only currency they accept is the US dollar.

The second way is to trade your bra for vodka.


Here is their collection of previously exchanged bras.

      Unfortunately most of the people I met was on my antarctica tour itself. We had a brief tour of vernadsky by one of the researchers living out there, but I did not get a chance to make a contact.
