Most beautiful bars in the world — with cocktails worth traveling for

Camparino in Galleria, Milan, Italy

Mosaics and spritzes appeal at Camparino in Galleria

, Camparino in Galleria

This historic bar, first opened in 1915, ticks the beauty boxes on three accounts: locale, interiors and stylish Campari-based aperitivo. Overlooking the intricate frontage of Milan’s magnificent Duomo cathedral, it’s a destination of two halves. First, a glass-lined seating area where serene lunches or silver towers of snacks accompany frothy Campari Seltz. Next, the mosaic-lined bar, where white-suited barmen whip up Negronis for punters standing and sipping. Choose the latter, and you’ll get around €5 off your drink, basically enough to justify a second round.

Bemelman’s Bar, New York, USA

Sip a Martini at Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle

, Don Riddle

In the grand old Rosewood Carlyle hotel, sandwiched between stalwart galleries the Frick Collection and the Met, this piece of old-world New York is a work of art in itself. Walls are scrawled with the 1947 drawings of Ludwig Bemelman, an artist for the New Yorker and Vogue (you might know him better from the Madeleine children’s books). Romantic NYC-inspired scenes, from boaters in Central Park to snow-covered landscapes with ice-skating elephants, lend a sense of place nowhere else can replicate. And behind the bar they don’t fix a half-bad Manhattan, either.
