Bars 51-100 announced

22 August, 2016

Ahead of The World’s 50 Best Bars ceremony, Drinks International has released the list of bars that finished in places 51-100 in the 2016 poll.

The 482-strong World’s 50 Best Bars Academy voted for more than 650 bars in this year’s poll, with only the top 50 to be announced at an awards ceremony on October 6 at Christ Church Spitalfields in London.

But with less than 50 days before the announcement, bars that finished in positions 51-100 have been named to recognise their notable achievements. 

Hamish Smith, editor of The World's 50 Best Bars, said: "These bars may not have made the hallowed 50 this year but they deserve recognition. 51-100 is a really strong list, with a third of the bars having been previous members of The World’s 50 Best Bars and the other two-thirds possible members of the future. 27 cities are represented, as are bars across the gamut of styles, from hotel bars to speakeasies.

However, while revenues are returning and bars are beginning to recruit once more, we’ve come up against a whole new set of problems, one of which is a global starring crisis.
