The Connaught Bar is the Best Bar in the World. Still.

The World’s 50 Best Bars Awards has given its top place to The Connaught Bar – for the second year running.

It’s only the third time a bar has held on to this prestigious award in the World’s 50 Best Bars history and a remarkable achievement… just not so surprising for anyone who’s ever visited, whether for a classic drink or something a little more daring and creative.  

Speaking the day after the awards, Agostino Perrone, Director of Mixology, said “Last night was an emotional evening, as we celebrated this exceptional award with our industry friends. After another challenging year in hospitality, the industry’s resilience and unity through these times has been extraordinary.

“Our commitment to this industry and to our beloved guests has been our fundamental driver for the past 13 years. We will continue to work hard and keep up – as individuals, professionals, but foremost, as a team and a bar community to inspire the next generation.”

Only opened in 2008, The Connaught Bar has continued to maintain its position at the forefront of the London cocktail scene, offering a mix of traditional cocktails with innovative twists, and has spearheaded the art of table side theatre with its signature Martini trolley. We’re just impressed the judges remember their visits better than we remember ours…
