World’s Best Bars

One of the things that I love best about travelling is to find a local bar, sit, drink, watch the locals and interact with them.  Some of our favorite conversations in Ireland happened in a pub during a soccar (football) game!  Conde Nast has released their list of the World’s Best Bars!

  1. I think Conde is a bit too hung up on London. TWO bars in the Savoy? I would say the American Bar rates it but the Beaufort? I vote for the Buena Vista in San Francisco and the Ritz Carlton Lobby Bar in Hong Kong.
