A tree in South Africa has such a large circumference that a fully-functional bar exists inside its trunk.
The Sunland Baobab Pub opened inside the tree known as Sunland Baobab way back in 1933. The "Pub Tree" is near Modjadjiskloof. The massive tree has a circumference of more than 100 feet and can host up to 15 patrons. It serves draft beer and is complete with 13-foot ceilings, seating, and a music system.
As Inhabitat.com writes:
A seemingly natural spot for a cozy bar, the interior has 13-foot ceilings and is lined with wooden benches accommodating up to fifteen patrons. Shelves full of historical knickknacks give visitors a storied narrative of the history of the Pub Tree, which is part of a farm owned by the Van Heerden family—who also have a bed and breakfast on site. Visitors can expect all the regular accoutrements of a small pub, including a dart board which hangs on one of the tree’s interior walls.
