A few weeks back, I wrote in my newsletter about visiting Sips, a bar here in Barcelona which at the time had been crowned the fourth best bar in the world. Well, as of a few days ago, Sips has now been named the best bar in the world. When I moved to Barcelona I knew things would be culturally different from Los Angeles. There is a gluttony of things to do in LA, so how would Barcelona fare, or compare, in contrast? So it’s little things like this, knowing that the best bar in the world is a literal 8 minute walk from my apartment, that make me so happy to be here.
The whole list of Best Bars in the World is always fascinating to look through, especially seeing which cities/parts of the world tend to over-index. Plus you get so many great ideas for cocktails you can try to make at home.
