It's a big jump from last year's results, which only saw two entries from Singapore make the cut.

Singapore's world class bar scene was most recently celebrated at the World’s 50 Best Bar Awards held in London last night. Six bars in Singapore made it onto the covetable list, with Manhattan, also Asia’s Best Bar 2017, landing the seventh spot to claim the title of Best Bar in Asia and affirm its reputation as one of the hottest places to grab a cold one.
