We’re not going to lie, without much traveling to do or trips to plan, we’ve been drinking more than usual. Maybe you have, too. The beer has us reminiscing, thinking about some of our favorite bars around the world. Our team of writers each submitted a favorite spot – so in no particular order, here’s a look at the greatest bars in the world, according to Travel Magazine.
