Where to Find the World’s Best Bars

Ready to get your drink on? Travel + Leisure has curated a list from more than 400 specialists in the drink industry and coordinated by Drinks International highlighting some of the best watering holes around the world.

The list spans 26 cities, from London to Tokyo. 

Taking the top spot this year is New York City’s The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog. 

“Inside the top bar, visitors will find a ground-floor taproom with a selection of craft beers, bottled punches, and global whiskeys, while the upstairs has a parlor serving what the bar calls 72 'historically accurate' cocktails,” writes Travel + Leisure’s Talia Avakian. 

Other bars on the list include the Savoy’s American Bar in London, which long held the top spot, as well as London’s Dandelyan bar at the Mondrian Hotel. London actually holds three of the top spots on the list of 50, making it a prime locale for those looking to add to a boozy bucket list. 

New York’s Attaboy in New York is number five on the list, which, for the most part, alternates between bars in London and New York for the first eight spots.
