So the movers and cocktail shakers of the bar world met in London tonight to hear which of them had secured a place in the World's 50 Best Bars list.
London did extremely well, not least with the number one slot going to Artesian at the Langham Hotel for the third year in a row. That's Head Bartender Alex Kratena's Digidiva pictured right. City Road's Nightjar made it to third place while the American Bar at The Savoy made it to No 8.
Other London bars making the Top 50 list this year were:
- 11. The Connaught, Mayfair
- 12. Happiness Forgets, Hoxton
- 20. White Lyan, Hoxton
- 23. 69 Colebrooke Row, Islington
- 49. Callooh Callay, Shoreditch
