The World’s 50 Best Bars has announced the launch of its first-ever scholarship, the winner of which will be awarded with expenses-paid internships at London’s Connaught Bar and New York’s Katana Kitten.

The World’s 50 Best Bars reflects travel restrictions and spotlights neighbourhood bars, says Nick Strangeway.

London’s Connaught Bar has taken the crown at The World’s 50 Best Bars 2020, ending its 10-year wait for the industry’s most coveted prize.

PDT has been named the All-Time Achiever of Drinks International’s World’s 50 Best Bars poll. 

Masahiro Urushido has been named Chivas Regal’s first ever Chivas Master, at the NoMad Hotel in New York this week. 

Rusty Cerven, of the UK’s Connaught Bar, won the seventh annual Bols Around the World competition, beating 11 other finalists in a hard-fought competition at Amsterdam’s Escape nightclub.
