And how do they pick these bars? Hamish Smith, editor of The World’s 50 Best Bars, explains the voting process:

We poll, we count the votes and then we present the results in a magazine, on a website and at a ceremony in London – and we call it The World’s 50 Best Bars.

An untidy number, you might think, but we do not have a quota or target. Each year, new industry personalities emerge from all corners of the globe who fulfil our criteria of being influential, knowledgeable and, crucially, well travelled…” Read the rest here.
