The results are in for the World’s 50 Best Bars Awards 2014, and a London bar has come out on top! That’s right, London is officially home to the world’s best bar. Can you guess which one it is…? (Stop peeking at that tiny writing on the award).

It’s a actually the third time Artesian has won the award, and this year it also won the Polignac Best Bar in Europe Award. Second prize went to The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog in New York – here’s a picture of them looking a bit gutted that Artesian beat them (just kidding, well done guys).
