MANILA, Philippines — For the third time, the Philippines’ The Curator has been listed again as one of the best bars in Asia, the World’s 50 Best Bars website posted.
“Third-wave coffee by day and kick-ass cocktails by night is a winning combination, judging by the popularity of this cool bar. Staff treat ingredients with the utmost respect, whether it’s coffee beans or small-batch spirits, attracting a young, up-for-it crowd of cocktail lovers and caffeine fiends. There is a bright café at the front, but the back remains intimate and cosy – a clever trick considering the Spartan polished concrete and blonde wood design. Try the signatures #StillHurting, Under Pressure and Kiban Sour,” the website posted.
Listed at number 25, The Curator is the only Philippine bar in the The Asia’s 50 Best Bars and it is located at 134 Legaspi Street, Makati City.
Manhattan in Singapore top the list followed by Indulge Experimental Bistro in Taipei, Speak Low in Shanghai, Atlas in Singapore and The Old Man in Hong Kong.
According to the its website, the list was compiled from the votes of the Asia’s 50 Best Bars Academy, comprised of more than 200 drinks experts, including renowned bartenders and consultants, drinks writers and cocktail specialists from across Asia.
