Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2018 To Be Unveiled In Singapore For The First Time

The Much-Anticipated Ranking Of Asia' Best Watering Holes Will Soon Be Revealed

The awards ceremony for the third annual ranking of Asia’s 50 Best Bars will be hosted in Singapore this year, where Asia’s best watering holes in 2018 will be finally unveiled.

Set to take place on 3rd May at the Capitol Theatre, attendees expected at this year’s event include some of the best bartenders in the region, influential bar owners and key industry figures.

The bars that make the list are chosen based on the votes from over 200 industry leaders, consisting of drinks journalists, bartenders and owners as well as well-travelled cocktail aficionados. These experts weigh in on their top seven bar experiences over the last 18 months, out of which at least three votes have to go to bars located outside their country of residence. 

The award ceremony will also usher in the Singapore Cocktail Festival, which will take place subsequently, from 4th to 13th May.

With 13 local bars making it on the list in 2017, out of which three ranked among the top 10, the list has proven Singapore’s bar scene to be irrefutably world class. The Manhattan, located at Regent Hotel, was ranked first, while 28 Hong Kong Street and Operation Dagger came in 4th and 6th respectively.
