It’s not long now until the final list is unveiled for The World’s 50 Best Bars 2022, and to whet our appetite the list has been revealed for the bars in spots 51-100. And let’s be honest with ourselves: they may have missed out on places in the top 50, but you can bet that all of these bars are still amazing. We’re talking about the top 100 bars in the whole world after all. That’s no small matter, and London didn’t do too shabbily in the listing!
Bars found in the extended list span 32 different cities, with 15 new entries to the list. There were even five cities making their debut on the list: Kraków, Bratislava, Manchester, Playa Del Carmen and Bogotá. Leading the pack, by city, was Singapore, with eight bars on the list. 16 bars from across Europe made the listing, with four of those 16 found in the UK. Three of the UK bars are found in London: Three Sheets (72), Side Hustle (75), and Donovan Bar (89). Manchester’s Schofield’s Bar made its first showing, the first time a bar outside of London or Edinburgh has been represented on the 51-100 list.
The World’s 50 Best Bars – 51-100:
