A global ranking of the best bars in the world will always attract keen interest from the industry. The World’s 50 Best Bars provides a definitive list of the world’s best drinking venues, voted for by industry experts and influencers. Now entering its eighth year, the list has become the most anticipated release for drinks professionals and the awards are the highlight of the bar industry calendar.
The final list is compiled by votes from an academy of over 400 of the most renowned names in the drinks industry including Tony Conigliaro, David Wondrich, Hidetsugu Ueno, Bek Narzi, Dale DeGroff, Salvatore Calabrese, Gaz Regan, Jim Meehan, Erik Lorincz, Jörg Meyer, Sean Muldoon, David Rios, Anastasia Miller and Jared Brown. Votes are cast for 542 bars around the world and edited down to the top 50, to determine the final rankings. In 2015, Bacchus’ clients Alex Kratena and Simone Caporale were crowned “World’s Best Bar” for the fourth year in a row.
