The World's Best Bars 2020 is the international award given to the best bars in the world by 540 (anonymous) industry experts selected by William Reed Business Media.
There are many Italian names at the helm of the venues awarded, first of all the one led by Ago Perrone and Giorgio Bargiani, respectively Director of Mixology and Head Mixologist of Connaught Bar in London (winner of the review). 2 of the top 50 venues are based in Italy (1930 in Milano and Drink Kong in Rome); while 2 bars among the first 100 classified are placed in Milano (1930 and Officina Milano).
Among the criteria used to assess the ability in the art of international mixology stand out in particular: the fidelity to the embraced identity; the ability to clearly communicate their principles; impeccable service and a delicious and innovative drink list, as long as it is consistent with the chosen style. The team spirit is also an essential element for the success of all the venues reported.
Over the years Milano has distinguished itself in the creation of iconic contemporary cocktails, to be enjoyed during the aperitivo or accompanied by the tasty dishes typical of Italian cuisine.
