2 Bangkok bars make it onto the World’s 50 Best Bars 51-100 list 2021

The World’s 50 Best Bars 51-100 list 2021 was announced last night, and two Bangkok bars have made the cut.

This year, the top Asian bar on the list went to Bar Trigona in Kuala Lumpur. Located at the Four Seasons hotel, the establishment is known for crafting cocktails with local, sustainable ingredients. It was #44 on the 2020 World’s 50 Best Bars list, and #12 on this year’s Asia’s 50 Best Bars.

Around the region, Singapore’s Sago House ranked the highest (or lowest, in this case) at #63, followed by Barbary Coast at #81 and 28 Hongkong Street at #71, as well as The Bellwood (#76) in Tokyo, Aha Saloon (#91) from Taipei, Hong Kong’s Penicillin (#59) and Argo (#72), and Hope & Sesame (#94) in Guangzhou. India was also represented by Tesouro By Firefly in Goa (#65) and Hoots’ (#95) in New Delhi.

For Bangkok, we see Tropic City at #62 and BKK Social Club at #90, proving an impressive feat, given that bars were hardly allowed to open throughout the whole of 2021. Both bars have very recently re-opened.

Last year’s entries of No Sleep Club, Tippling Club and The Old Man Singapore did not appear on the 51-100 list, but they could be in the more prestigious World’s 50 Best Bars awards, which will be announced on 7 December at a ceremony in London.
