New York, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
Bright Lights Business (BLB) is excited to reveal the top places to enjoy a drink in New York, many of which are highlighted in Drink's International's World's 50 Best Bars 2012, released earlier this month.
The entertainment company's list outlines the many great places to sit back and relax with a drink in the city this month prompted by the international top-50 list, which features eight New York lounges and clubs, making the city second only to London in number of establishments able to crack the elite list.
Two of New York's finest establishments, PDT (Please Don't Tell) and Death & Co, made it on the top-10 (both slipping in the standings) while the other six bars, most of which improved their standings or were newcomers to the list, were scattered throughout the list.
Topping Bright Lights Business' list, PDT is fronted by hot dog stand Crif Dogs where you pass through a vintage telephone booth to get inside the bar. Once there you can enjoy cocktails alongside your hot dogs and waffle fries. The speakeasy topped the international list in 2011. The remaining seven bars feature hardcore lounges, authored bartenders, old school bars, fresh juice, ethnic twists and even a little history.
The top-50 list shows New York nightlife doesn't have to be full of glitz and glamour to be appreciated. Noticeably absent from the world top-50 list, but always on the radar of New Yorkers, are clubs owned by Mark Birnbaum. While none of the entrepreneur's establishments made Drink International's list the company's latest New York addition, Catch Roof, along with flagship nightclub Tenjune, are notable must-experience clubs according to Bright Lights Business.
Drink's International is an exclusive trade magazine for the global spirits, wine and beer market. The magazine's best bars list is based on an industry survey and features establishments that manage to fit service, menu and decor in to a welcoming package.
