Iceland may well be encountering another volcanic eruption but it is still a dream destination to visit, right? And how about LA, Miami, Antwerp, Frankfurt, Bangkok, Seoul, Penang and Melbourne?

If you wish to see behind the doors of these venues, you can do so in Night Fever 4, our latest book featuring places to drink, drink or dream.
