    London – Artesian at the Langham Hotel has been named the world’s best bar for a third consecutive year at Drinks International’s World’s 50 Best Bars ceremony in London, after beating off competion from New York’s The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog.

    Three London and three New York bars made up the top ten. Completing the top five, Nightjar finished in third while New York’s Attaboy – the Highest Climber for 2014 – catapulted from 42nd to fourth place and Employees Only took fifth.

    Imperial Craft, though outside of the top 50, rounded off the six regional awards with Best Bar in Africa & the Middle East. The Tel Aviv bar replaced Zuma Dubai to take the title.

    Twenty one of the bars were European, 16 North American, six Australian, four Asian and three Latin American.

    • Connecting you with the world of travel and tourism

      What they say

      Tourism is a people’s sector. One in 10 people in the world are directly or indirectly employed by tourism. Ours is the responsibility to ensure that tourism benefits each and every community, leaving no one behind.
      Tourism’s sustained growth brings immense opportunities for economic welfare and development. Yet, it also brings in many challenges. Adapting our sector to the challenges of safety and security, to constant market changes, to digitalization and the limits of our natural resources should be priorities in our common action.
      As we move towards a future guided by the universal 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), I take upon me to lead UNWTO with a strong focus on building partnerships with public and private sector, fostering jobs and opportunities for all, mastering technology and innovation and advancing sustainability and the fight against climate change.
      I trust that, together with our Member States and our partners from around the world, we can build a more competitive and responsible tourism sector for the benefit of all. I wish you a very happy 2018.
