The World's 50 Best Bars

An International bucket list of the world's best bars

To the naked eye, the latest rankings of the world's best bars is dominated by NyLon - that's New York and London to you and me. London boasts three of the top five, led by American Bar and Dandelyan, interspersed by NoMad and Dead Rabbit, a pair of much-loved and longstanding New York fixtures. But if you live outside the world's twin global cities, there's much to enjoy, and to approve of, in this year's roll-call. Despite Greece's plight, the rejuvenated city of Athens makes it onto the list, courtesy of the Clumsies. Shanghai's Speak Low, one of the kookiest bars you will find on the planet, is a worthy addition to the top-twenty, with a brace of Parisian favourites, Little Red Door and Candelaria, also sneaking in. The one thing you can be sure of is that this year's list is a truly global affair. Every year, the world gets smaller - and a genuinely great bar gets closer to your doorstep.
