The World’s 50 Best Bars 2023 features establishments from 28 cities, highlighting venues that specialize in exceptional atmosphere, service, and drinks.

New Entries Shine in Asia

Hong Kong was represented by COA at No. 20 and ARGO at No. 34.

Specializing in 100% agave tequila, mezcal, and other traditional Mexican spirits, COA offers guests a rich menu that introduces a new, seasonal cocktail each week. Jay Khan’s mission to put agave spirits at the forefront of Asia’s cocktail scene has resulted in a Hong Kong bar taking the number one spot of Asia’s 50 Best Bars for the third year in a row and an honorable position in the top twenty bars in the world for 2023.

Located in the Four Seasons Hong Kong hotel and featuring floor to ceiling windows with views of Victoria Harbour, ARGO is driven by innovation, offering its guests a collection of some of the world’s most unique spirits. The bar invites guests to familiarize themselves with the ARGO Field Guide, curated to provide context on their collection of spirits – including the raw materials, creator, and production methods of each hand-selected product.

The destination gained four ranked places in the 1-100 list overall, ensuring its vibrant bar scene is well-recognized globally. In the 51-100 list, Hong Kong’s Penicillin (No. 71) and DarkSide (No. 97), both returned after a year’s absence.
