These are the best cocktail bars in the Nordics

Better late than never, here are the results from the 2020 edition of Bartenders’ Choice Awards. Being part of this jury, I think it’s more important than ever to support the industry.

Because of the current situation, all Bartenders’ Choice Awards winners were announced during a live-streamed gala, and it’s available here. Congratulations to everyone, and fingers crossed for a better 2021 – hope to see you all soon!
