The World’s 50 Best Bars has been bestowing top honours to drinking spots all over the world since 2009, and a week before the grand reveal of the top 50, the extended 51 to 100 list has been revealed for the sixth year today. Out of the 14 Asian bars, eight were Singaporean, the most for any city yet again. This year sees two new entries of the sustainably-driven Analogue ranking No.65 and ritzy Republic squeezing in at the No.90 spot.
Other Singapore bars that made the list are Sago House, clinching the highest rank – so far – at No.51. 28 HongKong Street follows closely at No.55, where both of which raised up higher than the previous year. MO Bar sits comfortably at No.57, Atlas at No.67, No Sleep Club at No.69 and the anticipated comeback of Nutmeg & Clove at No.74. Outside of Singapore, there are also 15 new entries on the list, with five cities featuring for the first time: Kraków, Bratislava, Manchester, Playa Del Carmen and Bogotá. If you're wondering who gets a say, winners were chosen by more than 650 international “drink experts” consisting of renowned bartenders, educators and consultants to drinks writers and cocktail specialists.
