Finding the 50 best bars in the world: it's a tough job, but someone's got to do it.
Fortunately, San Francisco's own Camper English took on the task, curating a judging panel of 100 of the world's most formidable drinkers, including Playboy Club's Salvatore Calabrese, King Cocktail Dale DeGroff, Esquire's David Wondrich and a hearty bunch of brand ambassadors to assist with the task. Judges awarded nods to bars from Mexico to Melbourne, Dubai to NY and everywhere in between. In a feature in Drinks International, English and crew revealed their picks for the 50 best bars in the world. And San Francisco took up a whopping three spots.
The local favorites: Bar Agricole at number 40, Tommy's Mexican Restaurant at number 30 and Smuggler's Cove at number 19. Think another bar deserves the prize? Check out our editor's picks in the slideshow below and let us know your favorites in the comments section:
