The global media company, William Reed Media, released a list of the best 50 bars in the world, where 600 experts in this industry apply and vote for their preferred places based on their personal experiences on each site.
The results of the vote put the Limantour liquor store, located in the Roma neighborhood of Mexico City, as best bar in North America, ranking sixth on the full list.
Limantour Liquor Store opened its doors in 2011 and is currently an institution in the bustling nightlife of Mexico City; this place is considered one of the best party bars in the city, with an electric atmosphere for those looking for a quiet drink.
Headed by industry legend Benjamin Padrón and bar manager José Luis León, the place has become one of the best known in Mexico.
The cocktails are always colorful and in keeping with the lively atmosphere of the bar; in addition, the elegant decoration is divided into two levels.
That is why the Limantour Liquor Store was named as The Best Bar in North America 2021, but in past editions it was also awarded, as in 2017, which was considered the best bar in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The first places
It should be noted that this is not the only bar in Mexico that appears on the list, since at site number 12 appears Hanky Panky, located in the Juárez neighborhood, also in the country’s capital.
However, in first place appears Connaught Bar in London, followed by Tayēr + Elementary, also in the English capital, while Paradiso in Barcelona, was placed in third position.
The voting system
Organized by William Reed Business Media, the people behind 50 best restaurants in the world, “The World’s 50 Best Bars”Is the result of the opinions and experiences of 600 experts from the bar industry around the world.
What constitutes “best” is left to the discretion of these trusted, well-traveled experts. The list is the result of a simple vote count, as it is based on personal experiences, so although it is a bit “personal”, it is a good indicator of the best places to drink around the world.
Each voter casts seven votes based on their best experiences at each bar in the previous 18 months. In 2021, to reflect the reduced travel opportunities offered to panelists due to the pandemic, there was no requirement for voters to cast international votes.
