The best bar in the world is hiding behind a pastrami store in Barcelona

Thursday, October 6, 2022

This year's prizes were announced during a live event involving 1000 invited guests in Barcelona.

The best place to have a drink in the world has changed.

The new venue led to an exceptional number of new entries: A total of 14 of the 50 participants were from the new location.

It is the first time ever that a company outside New York or London has won the prize.

A Bar by names, London

In Lisbon and at the speakeasy-like counter L'Antiquario in Naples, Italy.

Both El Copitas in St. Petersburg and Insider Bar in Moscow, which had finished 8th and 13th in the previous year, were ineligible because Russia invaded Ukraine at the beginning of the year.

Among those dropping off the top 50 is SG Club Tokyo, whose score fell from 18th to 18.
