Cocktail bars in Stockholm and Oslo are among the best
A cocktail bar in Oslo is 20th best in the world, and another in Stockholm is 44th, according to the latest annual World’s 50 Best Bars list voted on by experts in the global drinks industry.
Announced at a ceremony in London at the end of last week, the ninth version of the list as voted for by more than 500 drinks experts worldwide rates both Himkok and Linje Tio very highly.
At the top of the list, which can be seen here, is the American Bar in London, a city with six venues in the top 20. Cities such as New York, Singapore, Paris and Tokyo are also well-featured.
Located at Storgata 27 in Oslo, Himkok is “the flagbearer for Oslo’s cocktail bars,” the list’s official website says. “A combined speakeasy, high-volume taptails bar, cider bar and al fresco eatery – also sporting a house distillery producing seasonal varieties of aquavit, gin, and vodka – the scene is set for any drinks lover’s night out.”
It adds: “Cocktails based around unique Norwegian flavours include cloudberries, seaweed, birch and even the caramelised milk cheese known as ‘brunost’. In a way, Himkok is doing for cocktails what the city’s three-Michelin-starred restaurant Maaemo has done for cooking.”
Linje Tio, at Tjoget, Hornsbruksgatan 24, Stockholm, “is the place to be in Stockholm, so pull up a seat at the steel bar in the middle of the venue where you can take in the room and watch the bartenders at work, all the while swirling on your stool and sipping on the Linje Tio classic cocktail with beetroot, coconut, lemon, ginger and nutmeg.”
