Taking the title of world's best bar design is Westlight

Taking the title of world’s best bar design is Westlight, a rooftop bar in Williamsburg, New York, from chef Andrew Carmellini.

Designed by Studio Munge, the bar features panoramic floor to ceiling views of Manhattan from the 22nd floor of The William Vale hotel, and makes use of black iron, natural stone, warm leather and sensual velvet.

Alongside classic cocktails and rare spirits, the bar menu also includes craft beer and wine, and small plates inspired by the global street food scene.

This year’s awards saw 980 entries from more than 70 countries. Winners across 37 categories were judged by a panel of influential personalities in design and hospitality.
