Under the best international cocktail bar banner – alongside Barcelona's Two Schmucks, and London's Tayēr + Elementary and Satan's Whiskers – Maybe Sammy has outshone a whole swathe of stellar bars around the world.
Not only that, Maybe Sammy's has also been recognised in the top four finalists of best bar teams in the world while co-owner, Martin Hudak, has been recognised as a top-four contender for best international brand ambassador through his work with spirits company Mr Black Spirits.
Previously, Maybe Sammy has won best new international cocktail bar in the 2019 Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards. The bar has also been the highest-placed Aussie bar in the 50 Best Bars in the World rankings for the past three years in a row.
