Singapore takes 6 spots in the World’s 50 Best Bars for 2017

Eyes on the prize

Text: Amelia Chia

That’s up from 3 bars on the list last year, and 2 in 2015

The verdict is out, and we should all be proud. Singapore had an impressive showing in this year's World's 50 Best Bars, announced yesterday evening in London — with a total of 6 bars in the top 50. The crowd-pleasing Manhattan Bar sits in the seventh spot (and for the first time, places a bar from Singapore in the top 10), also clinching the title of Asia's Best Bar. Other bars from our island-state that made the top 50 include Atlas at 15th place, Operation Dagger at 24th place, 28 HongKong Street at 25th place, Tippling Club at 31st place, and Native at 47th place.

And the best bar in the entire world? The swanky American Bar at The Savoy in London, claiming top honours for the first time. With seven other bars on the leaderboard, London is undoubtedly our planet's cocktail capital. We can't think of a better reason to make it our next destination of choice — sobriety might not be an option here.
