WORLD CLASS BARS IN SANDTON ANNOUNCED
Sandton establishments make WORLD CLASS best bars list for South Africa.
The definitive guide to South Africa’s most innovative and luxurious mixology destinations has been announced, as WORLD CLASS released the list of its top establishments. And Sandton venues are on the list!
The 46 bars presented with this distinction uphold the exacting standards of WORLD CLASS, and embody the values of this esteemed mixology program. The ultimate accolade for a bar, being included on WORLD CLASS’ list confirms that these venues have reached a zenith of success with expertly created cocktails and charismatic mixology stars.
In addition, the bartenders from these establishments are set to go head to head for the honour of being crowned the country’s top bartender, by gaining entry into the WORLD CLASS Global Final, set to bring the world to Cape Town later this year – home of renowned cocktail emporium The Orphanage amongst others.
Durban sees 12 venues given the prestigious title of WORLD CLASS Establishment, while Cape Town and Johannesburg amassed 19 and 15 such venues, respectively.
“Last year, we had 26 bars from South Africa on the WORLD CLASS Establishments list, and this year that number has nearly doubled to 46. This speaks to the overall elevation of the standard of bar-tending and luxury drinking experiences in South Africa.”
