Sustainable Bar Award

The World's 50 Best Bars will include the first Sustainable Bar Award as part of its 2018 edition. As issues of sustainability and social responsibility are more and more on the mind of the modern bartender, the organisation seeks to recognise those bars that marry outstanding mixology with a concern for the environment and the community.

The Sustainable Bar Award goes to the bar that receives the highest sustainability rating across a variety of criteria, including sourcing, environment and society, as assessed by the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), which has been collaborating with 50 Best since 2013. Applications are open to all bars in the 50 Best and 51-100 list and bars must self-nominate and complete a survey to be eligible.The winner of the first Sustainable Bar Award will be announced at The World's 50 Best Bars 2018 awards ceremony at the Roundhouse in London, UK, on Wednesday 3rd October.
