Pier A Harbour House, NYC

Pier-A-Harbour-HouseThe team behind infamous Dead Rabbit have done it again, but this time they’ve taken over a whole 28,000 sq foot space of genius. With a huge cocktail bar serving cocktails on tap, a coffee bar, oysters and seafood spot and fine dining restaurant complete with outside waterfront terrace; this is set to become one of NYC’s hottest hangouts.

Bijou Balls and Booze, Antwerp

Bijou-Balls-and-BoozeRenowned mixologist Ben Belmans is shaking up the scene in Belgium right now. With his newest bar he’s set out to break the preconception of  snobbery associated with cocktail bars by keeping prices down, serving 60% smaller glasses and giving it a pub feel. This spot isn’t all about the cocktail however; with affordable tapas, Champagne by the glass and Belgian spirits, Bijou, Balls and Booze is certainly unique, and BarChick’s all over it.

Le Syndicat, Paris

SyndicatLocated in the ever-trendy 10th Arrondissement of Paris, this speakeasy style bar designed by Sherry Butt’s Sullivan Doh and Romain Mouellic is dedicated to the defence of the forgotten French spirits. We’re talking the reinvention of Armagnacs, Cognacs and brandies all showing what they can do in some oh-so-French cocktails, as well as some incredible spirits that they’re making in-house.
