The best bars in the world; what a lot of tosh

Just a few weeks after the "world's top 100 restaurants" were announced comes news of the "world's top 50 bars".

I'm calling these awards out as total tosh.

There is no way the judging can make any sense. And one man's superb G+T is another woman's weak-as-piss drink.

One judge's great cocktail might not be fruity enough for American tastes. One person's great ambiance might be far too loud for me.

Bars are a matter of personal preference.

But that won't stop the crew behind he World’s 50 Best Bars 2019 awards ceremony on October 3.

In fact, it hasn't stopped them releasing a list of numbers 51-100 in a shameless grab for pre-event publicity.

Thus we learn that the US leads the 51-100 list with nine bars featured; four in New York City, two in San Francisco and Chicago and one in Miami.

William Drew, group editor of The World’s 50 Best Bars, said: “Ahead of The World’s 50 Best Bars awards ceremony returning to London’s Roundhouse on October 3, we’re excited to be able to share the 51-100 list.

"It is a true reflection of some of the key emerging trends in the industry, as well as the extraordinary talent of the bartenders."

Apparently, the scoring is done by an "academy" - pretentiousness alert right there - of
over 520 experts worldwide.

Each voter casts seven votes, based on their best bar experiences of the previous 18 months, of which at least three must be for bars located outside the voter’s country of residence. 

Which is great news if you run a bar in New York or London, but almost certainly rules you out if your bar is in Hobart or Brakpan.


  1. Too right Winsor, it is a matter of personal preference. And even if there were objective benchmarks, who has visited every bar (or restaurant or beach or hotel or whatever) on the planet? Only one thing's more annoying: "best of all time" lists where "all time" means since 1990 (or however far back the writer's memory goes.
