Singapore set to host World’s 50 Best Bars on 17 October 2023

50 Best Bars

The annual list of The World’s 50 Best Bars leaves Europe and heads to Singapore for the very first time.

The awards ceremony which will take place later this year on 17 October will be held with a live awards ceremony at Pasir Panjang power station. This also marks the first time in the awards’ history for the ceremony to be held in Asia.

The 15th annual edition of World’s 50 Best Bars will bring together the global bar community to to recognise the achievements of the past year, celebrate global talent and, ultimately, honour the best bars in the world.

Highlights for the event programme in Singapore will include the Bartenders’ Feast, which takes place the night before the reveal of The World’s 50 Best Bars 2023. It will be followed by the glamorous awards ceremony itself on 17th October, which will feature red-carpet arrivals and interviews, a drinks reception and of course, the countdown from No.50, down to No.1.

New for 2023 will be a series of five 50 Best Signature Sessions. These live events – which will also be open to the public — will take place in Singapore’s top bars, where local bar afficionados will be able to savour drinks from the world’s best cocktailian talent.

Ahead of the awards ceremony, 50 Best will reveal the winners of two special awards designed to celebrate the exceptional achievements of one bar and one bartender over the past year, as well as those venues ranked in the extended 51-100 list:

Michter’s Art of Hospitality. This award is voted for by all members of The World’s 50 Best Bars Academy, who are asked to name the bar where they received the single best hospitality experience during the voting period
Altos Bartenders’ Bartender. This award is voted for by the bartenders behind those bars on this year’s list, who are asked to name one peer who has done more to further the craft of bartending than any other across the course of the 18-month voting period
51-100 list. 50 Best will reveal those bars ranked between 51st and 100th on its website and social media channels

The countdown of the list of The World’s 50 Best Bars 2023 will also be broadcast live to a global audience who are not able to attend in person through The World’s 50 Best Bars Facebook page and 50 Best Bars TV channel on YouTube.
