The World’s 50 Best Bars 2019 Unveils First Half Of List

The top places of the list will be revealed on October 3rd.


The World’s 50 Best Bars 2019 ceremony will take place on Thursday, 3rd October in London, but to whet our appetite, or entice our thirst rather, the organisation has just shared the establishments that have made it to the extended 51-100 list.

With 14 new entries in the first half of the list, from places 51 to 100, the selection includes bars from 26 cities across 20 countries – sadly, Ireland isn’t one of them. The United States leads the ranking with nine bars, four of which are located in New York City, two in San Francisco and Chicago and one in Miami.

London hosts six of the bars mentioned, including Tayēr + Elementary (which debuts highest at 52nd place), Scarfes Bar (55th), Oriole (64th), Satan’s Whiskers (78th), Donovan Bar (87th) and The Gibson (97th), while Panda & Sons (77th) in Edinburgh completes the UK’s offering. Paris appears four times in the ranking with Candeleria (58th), Danico (68th), Le Syndicat (84th) and Mabel (98th). For the full list, see below.One of these establishments will be named the “Campari One To Watch” at next week’s ceremony, a category recognising a rising star with the potential to break into the main list in the coming years.

About the list, William Drew, Group Editor of The World’s 50 Best Bars, said that “it is a true reflection of some of the key emerging trends in the industry, as well as the extraordinary talent of the bartenders. This year’s 51-100 list includes a number of returning favourites, but it is also great to see a wide range of new entries from across the globe. It really showcases the diversity and ever evolving quality of the world’s leading bars.”

The World’s 50 Best Bars is an annual list that celebrates the best of the international drinks industry. Now in its 11th edition, it is voted for by over 520 drinks experts, including renowned bartenders and consultants, drinks writers and cocktail specialists, from across the globe.
