Not far behind it is the equally popular The Dead Rabbit in fifth place, meaning two of the top five bars are located in New York City. This is a bit of a slide for The Dead Rabbit after taking home first place last year, but as far as we're concerned, top five is nothing to scoff at.
Several bars from last year's awards, like Attaboy (NYC), American Bar (London) and Licoreria Limantour (Mexico City), are on the 2017 ranking. The Highest New Entry on the list goes to Atlas in Singapore, and the Best New Opening goes to Blacktail in New York.
Voting is done by bartenders, cocktail aficionados and drinks writers from across the world, each of whom are allowed seven votes with location-specific requirements. In an additional layer of subjectivity, voters must have actually visited the bar in the past 18 months. It's tough work, but somebody has to do it.
