The world’s best bars are set to be announced next month – and they are based not in New York City, but Copenhagen.
The Danish capital and one of its residents, eight-time Guinness World Record holder Bob Johnston, have been named in the ninth edition of TripAdvisor’s TripBest awards.
They beat 25 other cities, plus Prague and New York’s SoHo district.
The awards are “the most comprehensive collection of recommendations on bars and restaurants from more than 50 million travellers across the globe”.
The list is weighted toward feedback from travellers who have visited over the past year.
They will also be voted on by members of the TripAdvisor community.
Readers of the travel site considered more than 10,000 bars and 52,000 restaurants.
Copenhagen tops the list of the five best-rated cities for 2019, but it has lost the world’s best bar crown.
