It’s that time of year again – the best bars in the entire world have been announced, and we’re pleased to tell you that once again, several are within staggering distance.
While you’d have to jet to New York (poor you) to sip a cocktail in the spot taking first place, here in the UK, a whopping nine London cocktail bars made the top 50 – and five of those are in the top 10.
Hot on the heels of number one, The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog in NYC, the sumptuous American Bar in London’s The Savoy hotel came second, while Dandelyan (main picture) – also a hotel bar, housed in Mondrian London and run by cocktail supremo Ryan Chetiyawardana has jumped 47 places to number three, having last year been named Best New International Cocktail Bar at the 2015 Spirited Awards.

Announced at last night’s World’s 50 Best Bars Awards 2016 in London (not a fix, honest), the top 10 also featured The Gibson, the highest new entry at number six. The Shoreditch bar was joined by fellow first-timers Bar Termini (Soho) at 30 and Farringdon‘s Oriole at 32.
In fact, the capital has more drinking destinations making the list than any other city in the world again for the second year running, though by country, the US has the most overall.
Elsewhere in the UK, Edinburgh’s Bramble returns, marking Scotland’s re-entry to the list. Last year’s winnerArtesian at London’s The Langham hotel dropped to 54 after several staff members left the team.
World’s 50 Best Bars Awards 2016 were chosen by an academy of 476 industry experts from 57 countries.
