Thursday 5 October 2017, London - The Savoy is proud to announce that its American Bar has been named the world’s best bar at the ninth annual World’s 50 Best Bars awards, which took place in Southwark on Thursday 5 October.

American Bar’s triumph comes as no surprise after it was ranked second in The World’s 50 Best Bars 2016, with New York’s The Dead Rabbit taking the coveted crown.

The World’s 50 Best Bars provides an annual ranking of bars as voted for by over 500 industry experts from across the globe. The list has become the highlight of the bar industry calendar and the most anticipated ranking for drinks professionals and bar aficionados across the world.

Speaking about the award, Declan McGurk commented, ‘As the longest surviving American Bar in London, one of the most iconic in the world, steeped in rich history, the American Bar at The Savoy is extremely proud to have received one of the highest accolades in the bar industry today’.

Erik Lorincz, Head Bartender added, ‘This is an incredible achievement for the American Bar and a very proud moment in my 7 year career as Head Bartender. We are preserving the legacy and worldwide reputation the bar has established in its 128 year history, and it demonstrates that the American Bar continues to be a leader in the industry after so many years’.

Successfully combining the level of service and sophistication of a hotel bar with a buzzing, relaxed atmosphere, the American Bar provides guests with a timelessly elegant sanctuary to enjoy dynamic, first rate cocktails.

Its recently launched cocktail menu 'Coast to Coast', using explorative ingredients and visually-striking serves, represents a journey across Britain from South to North, beginning in the Garden of England and finishing at Castle Rock. Its cocktail experience is always centred around the guest, from the moment they arrive, to their very last sip. In this vein, each section in the new American Bar menu is accompanied by a key to the ingredients to help navigate through each recipe, allowing guests to enter fully into the tasting process. For a truly unique experience, its cocktails can be enjoyed at the bar, relishing the chance to engage with some of the world’s most talented bartenders. Elsewhere in the Art Deco designed bar, guests can relax and enjoy classic jazz from the American Bar’s two resident pianists.
