These are the world’s best bars for 2019

The world’s best bars for 2019 have been revealed.

The World’s 50 Best Bars, which has compiled an annual ranking of bars around the world since 2009, collected votes from more than 500 drink experts across the globe, including bartenders, cocktail specialists, consultants and drinks writers.

Topping the list is New York’s Dante, a historic bar which was originally established in 1915 and reopened in 2015.

“The measure of a bar is the experience of its customers – in hospitality, drinks and food Dante has the fundamentals down to a fine art, earning the deserved title of The World’s Best Bar 2019,” the list said.

Apart from the restaurant-bar’s collection of Negronis, the panel also recommended the Garibaldi, which consists of Campari and ‘fluffy’ orange juice.

Dante’s owner Linden Pride said he “could not be more honoured” to win the award. “We will continue to focus on our approach to hospitality and creating those special moments for every guest that comes through our door,” Pride told CNN Travel.

The UK was also well-represented on the list with 10 bars making appearances. London’s Connaught Bar placed second, emerging as The Best Bar in Europe awardee, while American Bar earned the number five spot and the Legend of the List award.

From Asia, six Singapore bars made the list with the chart-topper Atlas coming in at number eight. The Parkview Square bar was noted for its Great Gatsby-esque interior and impressive drink collection, which boasts more than 1,300 different labels of gin.

Australia’s only entry was Sydney’s Maybe Sammy at number 43. Located in The Rocks, the hotel bar received praises for its “inventive and delicious cocktail list, luxe surrounds and an attention to detail” as well as “great hospitality”.
