The Best Bar In The World Revealed At Prestige Awards Ceremony


The American Bar in London’s Savoy Hotel has won the title of the best bar in the world. Last year’s winner, Dead Rabbit, dropped to the fifth spot in the rankings, but three New York bars are still among the top 10 bars in the world, including NoMad in the NoMad hotel and Attaboy.

The World’s 50 Best Bar Awards were held at London’s Southwark Cathedral on Thursday, October 5. The rankings are determined by the votes of 500 Academy members from 55 countries, who represent “the strongest, most diverse collection of industry experts ever assembled to express their view on the best bars in the world,” according to a statement.

London earned the most awards for a single city, with four bars in the top 10, eight bars in the top 50, and American Bar in the number one spot. The U.S. was the most represented country overall, with 13 bars ranking among the world’s top 50.

In the U.S., NoMad at the NoMad Hotel in New York ranked as the third best bar overall, and the best bar in North America. Dead Rabbit, named the best bar in the world in 2016, ranked fifth this year. Attaboy was number 8 on the list this year, and this is its first appearance in the top 10.
