american bar at the savoy london

The World’s Best Bars, that annual ranking of… the world’s best bars, is out with its picks for 2017. As usual, London and New York dominated the list, with eight and seven bars, respectively. But this year saw an especially strong showing from Singapore, with six bars making the cut. San Francisco and Paris each tallied three.

The winner of the World’s Best Bar 2017 is the American Bar at the Savoy Hotel in London. The city also took spots two and four, with Dandelyan and the Connaught Bar, while New York rounded out the top five with The Nomad at number three and last year’s winner, The Dead Rabbit, taking fifth.

The bars are chosen from a panel of 505 drinks writers, bartenders and cocktail enthusiasts representing 55 countries. Each voter casts seven votes, and a minimum of three votes are required for bars outside their home countries. Overall, the list includes 25 cities spread over four continents.
