Two Athens bars were included in the Top-10 of “The World’s 50 Best Bars Awards 2017” for a second consecutive year. The ceremony took place at London’s historic Southwark Cathedral on Thursday 5th October 2017.
The ranking is created by the votes of an Academy of over 500 members from 55 countries – the strongest, most diverse collection of industry experts ever assembled to express their view on the best bars in the world.
Greece lead the way for the rest of Europe with Athens bars “The Clumsies” at No.6 and
Baba Au Rum (No.30), both making the list for a second year. They were joined by Lost &
Found (No.29), in Cyprus.
London claimed the top spot with American Bar, located within The Savoy, one of the world’s most recognised hotels. Winning the accolade for the first time, American Bar takes the title from the 2016 No.1, The Dead Rabbit in New York.
The World’s 50 Best Bars, owned and organised by William Reed Business Media, provides a definitive list of the world’s best drinking venues, voted for by those in the know. Returning for its ninth year, the list has become the most anticipated ranking for drinks professionals and bar aficionados across the world, and the awards are the highlight of the bar industry calendar.
