Sydney’s Baxter Inn a Neat 6th
London and New York bars have dominated the ranking for years, but Australia is gaining clout with 2 bars making it into the top 10 this year.
The whiskey sensation Baxter Inn Sydney was accompanied by Melbourne’s Black Pearl ranked at number 10.
The Baxter Inn is run by Anton Forte and Jason Scott and is a true New York meets Boston style bar serving up top-notch drinks and an extensive list of the worlds best whiskey.
The bar is located in the basement of a building at the back of an unmarked alleyway in Clarence Street. Although it’s location is somewhat secretive, this has only added to the Baxter Inn’s success.
The top three bars stayed the same this year, but judges say that the real prize was getting onto the list.
