Asia’s 50 Best Bars Announced!

Asia’s 50 Best Bars Announced! The seventh edition of Asia's 50 Best Bars was held live at the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok on 28th April. The event marked the first live ceremony since the Covid19 pandemic and was attended by mixologists, bar industry ambassadors, and cocktail enthusiasts.
Singapore did well by cinching 11 bars in the list, with Jigger & Pony, retaining their number 2 position as Best Bar in Singapore. MO Bar (No.8), Manhattan (No.9), Republic (No. 12), No Sleep Club (No. 15), Atlas (No. 23), Tippling Club (No. 27), Sago House (No. 31), Nutmeg & Clove (No. 36), Analogue (No. 37), and 28 Hong Kong Street (No. 49) are among the other venues from Singapore.
What a year for Singapore's bar scene, notably MO Bar, claiming Nikka Highest Climber Award, after climbing a meteoric 37 positions from its rank of No.45 in last year's edition of Asia’s 50 best bars! Well-deserved indeed! 
Adrian Besa, Bar Manager of MO BAR says: “We are extremely honoured to be acknowledged as one of Asia’s 50 Best Bars for the third consecutive year, and to be awarded the Nikka Highest Climber Award. This marks a huge milestone for all of us as we humbly accept this award in full gratitude towards our community, and we’re excited to celebrate this momentous occasion in person with our industry peers,”
