Nine UK bars make it into the World's 50 Best Bars 2020, including two in the top 10 and London's Connaught Bar taking the number one spot

Announced this year via Zoom, the top 50 entries of the World's 50 Best Bar Awards included nine bars from the UK, as follows.

  • 1: Connaught, London
  • 5: Tayer + Elementary, London
  • 6: Kwant, London
  • 21: American Bar at The Savoy, London
  • 29: Lyaness, London
  • 32: Panda & Sons, Edinburgh
  • 33: Swift, London
  • 34: Three Sheets, London
  • 41: Artesian, London 

'Hats off to Connaught Bar, undoubtedly one of the finest cocktail bars of our time,' commented head of content, Mark Sansom, on the number one winner. 'The institution has earned a place on the list every year since 2010 and it has gradually grown in stature to become the world-beating bar it is today. Ago Perrone and his team are dedicated to excellence and look at every element of the guest experience to choreograph a faultless service. The Martinis aren’t bad, either.' 

Bars were judged over a 15-month period (January 2019 - March 2020) and votes were cast in July 2020, with results based entirely on the experience pre-Covid-19.

Congratulations to all of our UK winners!
