While it’s always fun to see who ranks in the 50 Best Bars In The World, have you ever wondered which bars don’t quite make it into the list?
50 Best, the brand behind The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and The World’s 50 Best Bars annual ranking and awards, have just announced the launch of 50 Best Discovery.
For 17 years, 50 Best has been compiling authoritative rankings based on the votes of its extensive international network of experts. Until today, 50 Best only revealed the restaurants and bars which received sufficient votes for them to be ranked. 50 Best Discovery now provides a deeper, richer library for people to draw on for eating and drinking inspiration as they traverse the world.
50 Best Discovery gives discerning diners and drinkers the chance to explore restaurants and bars that have received votes from 50 Best experts across the world, featuring more than 1,600 reviews of venues in 75 countries.
The library combines destinations from The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, The World’s 50 Best Bars, Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants and Asia’s 50 Best Bars rankings and other far-flung locales to comprise a diverse and tempting range of restaurants and bars, empirically recommended by its Academy.
This 1,700-strong Academy comprises the world’s leading food and drinks writers, chefs, restaurateurs and bar owners, global gastronomes and regional cuisine specialists.
A new website features a powerful search engine, which allows users to search by city, town and region to find restaurants and bars in a destination they may be travelling to, or to look for a reliable new dining or drinking experience closer to home.
Locations and reviews sit side by side to allow easy-to-navigate functionality with each entry displaying location, price, contact details, imagery and a bite-size profile.
50 Best Discovery offers a more diverse range of expert recommended bars around the world
Whether searching for the hottest back-street ramen bar in Tokyo, boundary-pushing fine dining in San Francisco or the best martini in Madrid, 50 Best Discovery allows adventurous gourmets to explore hidden gems, secret spots and timeless classics, providing a unique itinerary for culinary and cocktail adventures.
William Drew, Director of Content for 50 Best, says: “This exciting new way to explore the world is completely guided by the recommendations from the 1,700-plus independent expert voters behind the 50 Best restaurant and bar rankings.
Never before have the best local and international destinations in which to eat and drink been featured in one place, on one intuitive website. We are confident that it will become a go-to resource for anyone looking for a reliable gastronomic experience almost anywhere in the world.
“When The World’s 50 Best Restaurants was established in 2002, it started a journey that would see us showcase the very best places to eat and drink. Gastronomic tourism has become a cultural phenomenon in recent years, evident in the rapid expansion of our social media followers to more than two million and the continued growth of our global events.
For the first time, we are now able to offer a comprehensive library featuring a vast number of restaurants and bars. For food and drink lovers, this is the ultimate map of the world; essential for planning gastronomic adventures.”
