We are a country of drinkers and, although we certainly love our beer, our affection towards well-concocted cocktails is undeniable—which makes developing the perfect bar one of the ultimate American goals. It seems like we're doing pretty well. 

Thirteen of the venues that made it to the annual World's 50 Best Bars of 2017 list are in America. Although The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog in New York City, which topped the list last year, fell to 5th place this time around (London's American Bar in the Savoy Hotel is now number one), a total of seven NYC spots made the list, in addition to one bar in Chicago, two Miami locations and three venues in San Francisco.
