What to Drink at the World's Top 10 Bars

"World's Best Bar" means something different for every person. For some, the ambience can make or break a watering hole. For others, a great cocktail is enough to keep them coming back for more. Earlier this month, Drinks International announced the winners from the World's 50 Best Bars Awards 2015 with inns and lounges from New York City all the way to Melbourne. Needless to say, it could stand alone as a great itinerary for the most enthusiastic cocktail connoisseurs.

This year's list ranges from speakeasies and tiki bars to restaurant bars and hotel bars—meaning there's a bar stool for every drinker. Not sold? We went a little further and pulled a few recommendations from visitors for each spot. Read on and start planning your next trip.


The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog is an unexpected gem in New York City's Financial District. The cocktail menu is organized by the four seasons, making the seemingly overwhelming choices a little bit easier to whittle down. Fun fact: Some scenes from the "Gangs of New York" was filmed at this bar. Try the Moby Dick: Remy Martin 1738 Cognac, Power John's Lane Irish Whiskey, Pale Cream sherry, fig, elderberry, lemon, orinoco bitters, vanilla, and vanilla soda.
