Asia's 50 Best Bars 2018


The World's Best Bars has released its third annual list of the 50 Best Bars in Asia, with Singapore's Manhattan bar taking the top spot for the second year in a row.

Singapore dominates the top 10 with four bars, including chef Ryan Clift's Tippling Club and Native (read what Native's Vijay Mudaliar had to say about flavour matching at a recent #50BestTalks event in Macao).

Shanghai's Speak Low is the only bar to feature in the top 10 of both Asia and the World's 50 Best Bars.

The list is compiled from the votes of over 200 drinks experts across Asia, including bartenders, writers and drinks consultants. According to the rules, voters must have visited the bars, which must still be open, within the last 18 months and have no financial interest in them.
