By  | 


Have you ever wished that you could sit down at the Krusty Krab and enjoy a Krabby Patty with SpongeBob? Or have you ever wondered what it would be like to chat with the Doctor over some chicken fingers and custard?

Well, the good news is that you actually can! …Sort of.

You probably won't see the Doctor or get to meet the real SpongeBob. But there are actual real-life restaurants and bars you can visit that were inspired by TV shows and movies — and we'd say that's coming pretty close! Some of the locations are real-life replicas of the places we've seen on-screen while others include fun themes related to major fictional characters.

But what's even more awesome is that many of these cafes and bars serve the same foods that are so well-loved by our favorite characters. So while we may never get to hang with the characters themselves, we can still walk in their shoes and feel like we're a part of their world! See all the cool places you can visit that were inspired by popular fictional hangouts.
