2010 50 Best Bars

The Drinks International list is out once again.

700 bar professionals from 50 countries came up with the list. I’d love to know if they submitted blind or voted for an already collated list. There are 5 bars from aussie on the list, so a fantastically well done 1806, Der Raum, Black Pearl in Melbourne and Zeta and the Ivy in Sydney. Top 50 lists are always dicey, there are some favourites of mine not on there, but there are more than a few I’d love to go and visit.

Who did they miss in Australia or anywhere else in the world for that matter?
