Hong Kong nabs three spots on The World’s 50 Best Bars list

Time to break out those bright red scarves — The World’s 50 Best Bars 2021 list has been unveiled.

There’s bound to be a lot of toasting (uh, more than usual) to be done at three of Hong Kong’s favourite bars. Jay Khan’s Coa breaks Top 10 on the list and sits at a very respectable #7 (taking Best Bar in Asia!), while newcomer, Rosewood Hong Kong’s DarkSide, enters the list at #49 and Quinary re-enters at #50. This marks the Antonio Lai-led bar’s sixth entry onto the list, coming in just in time for Quinary’s tenth anniversary in 2022.

Taking top spot is London’s Connaught Bar, which continues the bar’s reigning streak as The World’s Best Bar into its second year running. In Asia, Singapore leads the continent with a whopping six bars on the list.
