World's Best Hotel Bars

World's Best Hotel Bars
• The Bar, Baccarat Hotel, NYC (pictured). The scene is joie de vivre at its finest: a sophisticated crowd feasts on caviar, duck pastrami sliders, and classic cocktails like the French 75 served in—what else?—the brand’s crystal glassware.

• Commons Club, Virgin Hotel Chicago. The stainless steel bar has splashy red-and-white panels and serves playful drinks like the Dirty Pretty Lover (bourbon, quince, raspberry and Moët). There are plenty of places to chill, from the Shag Room, outfitted with half-moon shaped couches and velvet curtains, to the Funny Library, where shelves are lined with vintage tchotchkes and card games, to the rooftop bar with eye-popping views of the Loop and a menu of boozy teas.

• 1 Hotel South Beach, Miami. Expect a pool party vibe, with private cabanas, bottles of rosé, and a DJ spinning Ibiza-style beats.

• Mama Shelter, L.A. The cult boutique hotel chain from the Trigano family (of Club Med fame) will be remade with a laidback SoCal touch—and the action will be at the rooftop gym and bar.

• Grand Pigalle, Paris. The trio behind the Experimental Cocktail Club’s global success recently opened the nightlife-focused Le Grande Pigalle in the city’s fast-gentrifying SoPi neighborhood.

• Drake Devonshire, Ontario, Canada. The arrival of the stylish Drake Devonshire has cemented the area's status as an incubator for creatives and start-up-minded millennials. On Friday nights you’ll find them at this barn-like wine bar sipping Pinot Grigio from nearby Three Dog Winery or an old-fashioned Root beer made by resident barwoman Sandy De Almeida.

• 25 Hours Hotel Bikini Berlin. Follow the lines that spill out onto the ground-level up to the greenhouse-style terrace on the 10th floor. The cool indoor-outdoor space is decorated with plants and herbs—ingredients used for the tiki-inspired drinks and killer gin-and-tonics.
