One week before the virtual awards ceremony, 50 Best will reveal those bars ranked from 51st to 100th in the world on its website and social media channels Mark Sansom, Content Editor for The World’s 50 Best Bars, says: “We have been in regular communication with bars and bartenders all over the world as part of our fundraising and support outreach programme, 50 Best for Recovery. For the entire period, we have been assessing the global situation of the venues who have been able to reopen and, at every turn, have been encouraged to produce a list that will give bars something positive to talk about and drinks lovers somewhere to look forward to visiting. “We are well aware of the hardship hospitality venues the world over have experienced and the toll that Covid-19 has wreaked on our industry. However, we strongly believe that the announcement of The World’s 50 Best Bars 2020 will provide a focal point and stimulus for bars as they enter the next stage of recovery. It is also important to recognise the passion, creativity and craft that has seen so many through this harrowing period and usher in some much-needed positivity as guests seek to return to outstanding bars.” On 5th November, the streamed ceremony will begin at 3 pm UK time, culminating in the announcement of The World’s Best Bar. The World’s 50 Best Bars and show our appreciation to all the bars that have made the list during such a difficult period for the entire hospitality industry, which has been so heavily impacted by the pandemic.” Bars and cocktail lovers are invited to join the digital countdown of the list of The World’s 50 Best Bars 2020 through The World’s 50 Best Bars Facebook page and 50 Best Bars TV channel on YouTube.
