50 Best Bars In The World 2013 List Announced

Drinking: It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it. Luckily, there's a group of about 230 folks known collectively as the academy, who chose The 50 Best Bars in the World and announced the list last night at a ceremony in London. Lists such as these are highly subjective, and given the dominance of London bars and Australian entries, there's an obvious UK slant, but we can't quibble with any of those that appear here. And while the entirety of the U.S. is not well represented, the six New York City entries are on point.
