Top 10 bars of the world

A cellar in Paris or a sky bar in Bangkok? Effortless Mediterranean white or midnight samba in downtown Rio? Guardian deputy travel editor Isabel Choat on her favourite bars of all time.

Those making the shortlist in this Guardian article are:

  • Chez Georges, 11 rue des Canettes, 75006, Paris
  • Mary McBride’s, 2 Main Street, Cushenden, Northern Ireland
  • Vesuvio, 255 Columbus Avenue, North Beach, San Francisco
  • OJ’s restaurant and beach bar, Crabb Hill Beach, St John’s, Antigua
  • Rooftop bar, Rex Hotel, 141 Nguyen Du, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
  • Sirocco bar and restaurant, 1055 Silom Road, Bangkok, Thailand
  • Puro Beach, 1 Cala Estancia, Palma, Mallorca
  • No Shoes Club, Baie de Somme, 22 Allée de la Grève, 80550 le Crotoy, France
  • Rio Scenarium, Rua do Lavradio, 20 Centro Antigo, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • Smoke bar and diner, 14 Trinity Road, SW17, Tooting, London

Rio ScenariumThere are so many wonderful bars out there that I don’t think it’s truly possible to narrow it down to just a ‘top 10’. Be sure to also check out the comments on Guardian Unlimited’s Beenthere site  for a wealth of other suggestions such as South bar in Chamonix, France and Bankerat in Copenhagen, Denmark.

  1. yeah, so many bars that every selection is personal. As a Spaniard, I live in the country of bars, thousands around the country, from local tapas bars to fashion restaurants and michelin starred places…I´ll prepare a list of top Spanish bars for the readers if they wish!

    Hi Eduardo

    That would be great if you don’t mind, and I’ll make it a separate post, with a link to your site to acknowledge. I travel to Spain reasonably often and love tapas, so I’d be keen to learn of some hidden gems from your inside knowledge.
