Also announced  were the regional winners from the UK, Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America and the Caribbean and Africa and the Middle East. 

The awards night will be supported by our sponsors: Botran rum, Asahi beer, Nikka whisky, Voss water, Caorunn gin and Polignac cognac.

The 2012 poll was conducted by World's 50 Best Bars editor Lucy Britner, along with Camper English in the US. The bar features were written by Tom Sandham and Lucy Britner.
