City Guides

FIND A BAR
WHERE
WHAT
WHO
WHEN

Possibly the best bar guide in the world…

With London on lock down, and the lack of sunshine over here we decided it was about time we get out there and see what the rest of the world has to offer. No longer lightweights, we’re heavy weight champions, we’ve prepped our livers and have decided it’s time to go global and bring you the best bars in the world. Our hit lists have it all from Caribbean Islands to Hong Kong, Delhi to Amsterdam, we’re not here to muck about, this is serious.

While we have hit lists for lots of places around the world of bars we think are BarChick worthy, we are always up for suggestions, so if you reckon you know where the party’s at, where the staff are hot, where there’s a tranny working the door, a trampoline on the dance floor, or somewhere they just make damn fine cocktails.
