Swanky London cocktail bar Dandelyan has been named the World’s Best Cocktail Bar at the 2017 Spirited Awards.
The bar was founded by Ryan Chetiyawardana and is housed within the beautiful Mondrian Hotel. It beat off stiff competition from the world’s top drinking dens at the New Orleans awards. It was named Best International Hotel Bar too.
Other London bars honoured at the awards included Notting Hill’s Trailer Happiness, which was named the Best International High Volume Cocktail Bar, and Soho’s Swift, which picked up the gong for Best New International Cocktail Bar.
Ryan Chetiyawardana is a London cocktail dignitary – he’s worked in some of the city’s most pioneering bars and now has his own range of mixed spirits in Selfridges.
The groundbreaking Dandelyan menu includes ingredients like ‘chalk bitters’, ‘crystal peach nectar’ and the archaic-sounding ‘dandelion capillaire’.
