The prestigious group behind World’s 50 Best Restaurants recently launched the first regional list of The World’s 50 Best Bars brand, with an event at The Capitol Theatre last night.
David Ong and Jericson Co of The Curator celebrate their win as the Best Bar in the Philippines.
There is also much to celebrate with Singapore’s Manhattan taking the top spot, as two of its head bartenders are both Filipino. Along with Philip Bischoff, Cedric Mendoza and Gab Carlos create libations inspired by the golden age of cocktails, in a beautifully-appointed space tucked away in Singapore’s Regent Hotel, using a library of ingredients all made in-house.
