50 Best Bars in the World

Since the dawn of time, the local bar has been a respite from the mundanity of daily life as well as a place to simply unwind with a nice stiff drink. Those are our bars; our own personal Cheers where everyone knows your name and you’re surrounded by good friends, good service, and of course, libations.
