Asia’s 50 Best Bars announces the 51-100 list, featuring 15 new entries and spanning 19 cities, ahead of the live awards in Hong Kong.

LONDON, UK – Shining the spotlight on an extended collection of bars across the region, Asia’s 50 Best Bars, sponsored by Perrier, releases the prestigious 51st to 100th list for the fourth year running. Revealed one week ahead of its live awards ceremony in Hong Kong, the ranking is created from Asia’s 50 Best Bars voting process, which sees its 265-member strong Academy – consisting of a gender-balanced group of bartenders, bar owners, drinks writers and cocktail aficionados – place independent and anonymous votes for what they believe constitutes a “best bar experience”.
