The Bars to Watch in 2014

21st November, 2013 by Becky Paskin

With ever more style bars and speakeasies opening the world over, we count down the world’s best bars to watch in 2014.

World's best Bars-to-Watch-2014

Our list includes some of the most interesting and best bars in the world, both old and new

As with all things in life, the bar industry is constantly evolving, and it doesn’t matter where in the world you pull up a barstool, there is always change afoot, a new local haunt or destination bar springing up to delight the senses.

But with so much change taking place, how do you sift through all the openings to find the true gems?

Every year, here at The Spirits Business, we shy away from simply listing the world’s greatest places to grab a drink. That list, after all, would simply be a roll call of the same names year after year.

And while providing a snapshot of the industry at any given moment in time, it sheds no light on where it is headed in the future. And isn’t evolution the name of the game, after all?

With that in mind, we’ve enlisted the insight and local smarts of cocktail writers from all over the globe to help us compile a rundown of those places worth keeping an eye on in the year ahead.

These recommendations aren’t just the cool new joints, but also include those long-established bars returning for another bite of the big time.
