Singapore Leads The World’s 50 Best Bars With Six Bars On The 2021 List

Singapore has the most Asian representatives and more than any city in the world, with six bars making The World’s 50 Best Bars 2021 list!


The World’s 50 Best Bars 2021 edition, sponsored by Perrier, was announced at a live awards ceremony on Tuesday, 7 December 2021 in London, UK. The awards recognise the hard work from the entire bar sector over the past year and aim to inspire and encourage hospitality venues in the next crucial stage of recovery. 

Singapore has the most Asian representatives and more than any city in the world, with six bars on the list. Jigger & Pony is at No.9, Manhattan at No.15 and Atlas at No.16. There are two Singaporean new entries with No Sleep Club at No.26 and MO Bar at No.36, and Tippling Club,  Singapore is a re-entry at No.43.

The 2021 edition of the annual ranking features bars from 17 countries and sees London’s Connaught Bar take the No.1 spot, picking up ‘The World’s Best Bar’ and ‘The Best Bar in Europe’ titles. 

Under the masterful leadership of Agostino Perrone, the venue’s Director of Mixology, Connaught Bar stays true to its principles of presenting artful, modern drinks with graceful service in an elegant setting. Designed by the late David Collins, the Cubist-inspired bar is known for its unique Martini trolley, where bartenders give a personalised drinks experience to guests. 

For the first time since 2010, an Indian bar returns to the ranking with Sidecar, New Delhi coming in at No.47. Hong Kong’s Coa has climbed to No.7 and is ‘The Best Bar in Asia’, sponsored by Torres Brandy.
