The World’s 50 Best Bars of 2017 list has just been announced and London’s American Bar in the Savoy Hotel took the number one spot. It made a step up from 2016 when it held the number two spot.
Last year’s number one spot was held by The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog in New York City, but they dropped down to number five this time around.
The list is created by William Reed Business Media, who is also responsible for the similarly themed World’s 50 Best Restaurants. It’s intended to be a strong voice in the industry and requires the votes of 500 people from around the world to make their decisions.
London actually has a few bars make it into the top ten this year. Dandelyan, Connaught Bar, and Bar Termini all received high honors.
