London Dominates ‘World’s 50 Best Bars Awards’

It looks like, if you want to tie one on in style, London is the place to go.

Drinks International recently announced its The World’s 50 Best Bars 2014 list, and London is not only the city with the most bars on that list, it claims the #1 Best Bar in the World award for the third year in a row for Artesian.

The list is compiled by votes from an academy of more than 330 of experts in the drinks industry. Drinks International list Tony Conigliaro, David Wondrich, Salvatore Calabrese, Gaz Regan, Jim Meehan, Dave Broom, Anastasia Miller and Jared Brown as judges. Votes were cast on 137 bars from 56 countries to determine the final rankings.
