Home-delivered cocktails from the world’s best barsBy Owen Bellwood
As bars across the globe are forced to close, we highlight the on-trade venues delivering drinks to your door so you can enjoy world-class cocktails from the safety of self-isolation.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has hit the on-trade hard, with bars, pubs and restaurants around the world forced to close their doors to protect customers and staff.
From Brooklyn to Brixton, the world’s drinking dens have sought ways to keep their businesses running through these difficult times and as a result have turned to deliveries and takeaways.
From classic cocktails to signature serves and ‘survival kits’, SB has rounded up a host of bars that now offer takeaway and home-delivery drinks services.
This is not a definitive list, and as more pubs and bars announce their delivery drinks services, we will keep updating this compilation where possible.
Click through the following pages to find out which bars are offering drinks on demand to your self-isolation location.
