The world is full of great bars. You could spend a lifetime trying to suss out which ones are worth a trip. Or, you could also let someone else do all the leg work and then just follow the template they set out.
150 Bars You Need to Visit Before You Die is a new book by master sommelier Jurgen Lijcops. He guides readers on a journey to the best and most storied bars throughout the world, from New York to London, from Sydney to Hong Kong. The book shows locations that set themselves apart with their gorgeous design, stunning views, exclusivity, or a fantastic signature cocktail.
The book includes handsome images of bar interiors, 18 cocktail recipes for classics, like the Gin Fizz, Negroni, and Manhattan, as well as the best sours and long drinks, and tips for which drink to order at which bar.
