The American Bar at the Savoy, London

Hiding in plain sight in one of England’s most famous hotels, the American Bar at the Savoy is a grand art deco bar that’s been serving the finest drinks since the 1890s.

Opulent, sumptuous, unabashedly decadent, Bar Longhi folds you into an embrace of Murano wall lamps and Fortuny fabrics, of marble and mirrors. Tuxedoed barmen glide between discreetly spaced tables bearing Bellinis and Venetian spritzes – this bar will transport you to a world of magic from the first sip.

Maybe Sammy, Sydney

From the glamorous 1950’s rat-pack inspired interior to the dapperly dressed bartenders serving up a menu of decadent cocktails, it’s obvious why Maybe Sammy holds 11th place on the World’s 50 Best Bars list. Located in The Rocks, the bar is known for its high level of guest service and stylish drink offerings. We recommend going for the popular ‘Till You Hear The Bell that’s made with Don Julio Blanco, Dry Vermouth, Palo Santo and red bell pepper and lemon, or if you’re searching for a more refreshing tipple then the Rhythm of Life with Bacardi Carta Blanca, coconut cold brew, grapefruit and fig might be the drink for you.
