the Himeville arms would be up there amongst my favourites. I found this great place in Deneysville, looks like a great pub. The locals dont stuff around either, this picture was taken at around 9 in the monring and that is the first scotch and soda on bar already.

Goudini Hotel, excellent character hotel and bar with some stunning old photos and memerobilia against the wall. The coppoer pipes in the toilets would make any Sergeant-Major ejeculate with happiness

Not on a bike trip and not really a bar - but definitely quirky!

The first has no name.  Located in Adis Kidam some distance south of Lake Tana.  Inside they brew "whisky", called "araki" from some kind of bean.  I had a fair bit, strong stuff.  My wife had a violent reaction to it.  Even just a burp from me the next day had her white in the face!

The second is on Lake Awassa, hotel on edge of eponymous town.

The third: ooh, that red sauce is hot!!!  (makes your eyes glow)
