A Melbourne and Sydney bar have been named two of the world’s best

It’s pretty often these days some amazing feat of Australian ingenuity, taste, sophistication and talent gets recognised internationally, because we really are quite awesome, BUT these are especially good.

Two Australian cocktail bars have nabbed a spot in the top 50 ranking of the world’s best bars in Europe, giving tastemakers from around the world even more of a reason to see what Australian hospitality can do.

The two bars are from both Melbourne and Sydney, making it crazy clear that Australian bar culture continues to compete on a global scale. 

The bars comprise two bars, the first of which is Black Pearl (No.22) in Melbourne, which was pronounced the Best Bar in Australasia, sponsored by Seedlip, and it also received Legend of the List after appearing on the list since each year since the awards began nine years ago.

The second contender is a Sydney bar called The Baxter Inn (No.45), which is also included in the international ranking bars.
