Pop open a bottle of your finest forced-carbonation, rotovap-distilled quality concoction! The 50 Best Bars in Asia have been named, with Singapore’s magnificent Jigger & Pony taking the top spot! With lockdowns, ECQs , and Circuit Breakers in effect across the region, its a bit of a challenge to head out and celebrate at many of the establishments who were awarded today, but — maybe more than ever — this is a moment in history when we need to acknowledge and tip our hats to the best work by the most remarkable industry professionals across the continent.
Yes, Jigger & Pony Singapore is now Asia’s Best Bar, and deservedly so. When you do get the chance to visit, you’ll find that the experience is complete: a friendly and smart staff, a balance of creativity and dependability, and an energy that feeds a great time. Spend some minutes browsing what is perhaps the most impressive menu design in Asia as well.
Last year’s top-knotcher, The Old Man in Hong Kong is still in the second spot, with their new The Old Man Singapore branch also entering the list at 22. Rounding off the podium is DailyDrinkMag.com favorite, Coa Hong Kong.
Locally to Manila, we’d like to shout out to The Curator and The Back Room coming up at 42 and 45, respectively. Meanwhile, DailyDrinkMag.com would also like to go on record that No Sleep Club and Oto really should have been in this year’s list. Just our opinion.
Congrats to all who made the 50 Best Bars list for Asia!
