Dandelyan: the best bar in the world

Looking towards London's South Bank and St. Paul's Cathedral, next to the mighty City (where the biggest stop in his audience is sure) Dandelyan welcomes the work of the pioneers of the cocktail bar Ryan Chetiyawardana and Iain Griffiths. Decorated with pink, green and golden colors, and with a relaxed atmosphere, its great strength lies in the cocktail menu, "a liquid exploration of the human adaptation of the fauna and flora to our digestive system."

Paradiso: the best bar in Spain

The Paradiso bar, in the El Born neighborhood in Barcelona, ​​it has entered directly to position 37 of the list, despite having only been open for two and a half years. Hidden behind a bar fridge from pastrami -un props which has impressed the jury of the prize- "a wooden bar is hidden, in copper tones, which exudes warmth".

The place, says the jury, has a ambitious drinks menu produced by Giacomo Giannotti in which you bet on author cocktails. "The menu is full of visually striking drinks that require modern techniques," they point out.

One of the hits of the bar is the 'Mediterranean treasure', a cocktail of vodka, sherry, elder liquor and agave syrup that is served in a sea shell enclosed in a pirate chest.

Salmon Guru: the best bar in Madrid

The Salmon Guru bar, in the heart of Madrid (C / Echegaray, 21), is the new commitment of bartender Diego Cabrera, a classic of the cocktail scene in Spain that has achieved with its new commitment to enter the 47th position of the prestigious list.

THE bar is divided into three spaces: the main room is set in the 50s, with almost tropical vibes, the side room is decorated with comics and the back has a touch of Chinese decay, Hollywood style. "It's very nice and drinks tend to be participatory," says the jury.

More Spanish bars between positions 51 and 100

At the bottom of the list, from 51 to 100, we find other Spanish bars. Javier de las Muelas's bar, Dry Martini (in Barcelona), continues to decline in the table since, in 2016, disappeared from the top of the ranking, in which he appeared since its inauguration, in 2009.
