Gravity Bar - Paris From Michael Mas (previously Le Marie Celeste and ECC) and his merry band of comrades comes this vaguely surf inspired bar. Located in the 10th, just by the Saint Martin Canal, expect fresh and light drinks that are loaded with savoury elements and unusual flavours ready to keep you on your toes. 44 rue des Vinaigriers 75010 Paris, France PARIS.Gravity.Bar Lilla E - Helsinki Tucked inside the Lilla Roberts hotel is the newest addition to the slowly growing Helsinki bar community. Aiming to keep the atmosphere relaxed and fun, the bar team are pushing flavours and experiences to levels not yet seen on the finnish shore. Expect anything but normal. Lilla Roberts Hotel, Pieni Roobertinkatu 1-3 00130 Helsinki, Finland Imperii - Leipzig After nearly two years of preparation, finally this new center of artful drinks, gorgeous food and even a hidden cigar lounge, has opened. From the masterminds of a set of super young and hot bartenders with influences from Paris, London, New Orleans and especially their local envrionment, expect style, grace and a whole lot of fun. Bruehl 72, 04109 Leipzig, Germany GERMAY.Imperii The Pen & Pencil - Manchester Inspired from the original NYC Mad Men haunt, this is an all day affair covering all the bases from early morning to the early hours. With veterans from The Violet Hour and Dry Bar at the helm the booze selection is ace and filled with references from the Big Apple and the show that made drinking whiskey cool again. 57 Hilton Street, M1 2EJ, Manchester, United Kingdom Seymour’s Parlour at Zetter Townhouse - London Tony C and the Zetter gang are at it again and this time they’ve gone central. The new hotel is ridiculously cool with dark corridors, four poster beds and rooftop roll top baths – but you’re here for the booze. If you’re feeling lazy order in as the mini bar’s stocked with pre batched cocktails, but you’ll find BarChick down in cave of curiosities that is Seymour’s Parlour where the forgotten drinks of the races are making a comeback. 28-30 Seymour Street, London W1H 7JB Zetter.drinks Casita 2 - London We have loved the tiny tequila den that is the original Casita for ages, so were pumped to hear they were opening a second one. A basement number hidden under a turkish restaurant with a stronger focus on Bourbon. Expect debauchery and epic fun-times. 1 Broadway Market, E8 4OH, London, United Kingdom

Australia

Heartbreaker - Melbourne Beer on tap, shots of whiskey and old school late night juke box sing alongs, this younger sister of classic cocktail den The Everleigh is all about good times and getting a little wild. They can still whip up a mean cocktail and even have a bottle shop with Everleigh classics available for takeaway, so the party never has to stop. 234 Russell St, Melbourne 3000, Australia AUSTRALIA.Heartbreaker

Asia

The Flagship - Singapore 

Part of the Jigger & Pony and Sugarhall family, this bite sized polished dive of a speakeasy is all brick walls, 90’s rock, and all the whisk(e)y. With a tiny and constantly changing menu things are fun and easy here, so get ready to loose a couple hours. 18/20 Bukit Pasoh Rd, Singapore, 089832 La Otra - Tel Aviv This little sister to the award nominated Imperial, there are some pretty high expectations flying. Looking at the darker side of the Caribbean and Mexico with all their favorite aspects of voodoo and Day of the Dead, get ready for lots of mescal, tequila and all the rum served with the best of both cuisines. Hayarkon 66 st., Tel Aviv, Israel ISRAEL.La.Otra
