There’s no shortage of destination drinkeries offering carefully-considered cocktail menus

Global passenger traffic is thriving, and, more than ever, consumers want to maximise every single moment of their journey time.

The very act of travelling, no longer just a simple A-to-B procedure, is seen as an experience in itself – opening up a world of possibilities within the industry.

Having transformed beyond recognition, the travel channel is ever evolving in a bid to cater to every possible passenger whim, and as a result there’s no shortage of destination drinkeries offering carefully-considered cocktail menus alongside gourmet cuisine.

So strong is the channel’s commitment to cocktails that Singapore Changi Airport – which features across the page – even held the first-ever in-airport cocktail festival, with masterclasses aplenty and guest spots from some of the world’s best bartenders.

From well-travelled business moguls to holiday-of-a-lifetime trippers, there is a plethora of consumers ready and willing to splash the cash and make their journey a memorable one.

Looking across the travel spectrum of rail, air, and sea, we present four unmissable luxury bar experiences from across the globe. Trust us, there is no better way to while away that transfer time.
