The Wor l d’s 50 Be s t Bar s

Each year, the good people at The World’s 50 Best Bars compile

a list of just that: a comprehensive run-down of the planet's top

boozers, from speakeasies and saloons to luxury hotel bars and

classic drinking dens. Bars the world over are represented in

2016’s list, from Buenos Aires, Old San Juan, Beirut and Nicosia

to metropolises such as New York, Singapore and San Francisco.

CityJet’s network covers 12 out of the 50 (and a further nine in

the ‘Bars To Watch’ list), with one bar in Amsterdam, two in Paris

and nine in London, five of which – American Bar (2), Dandelyan

(3), Connaught Bar (4), The Gibson (6) and Happiness Forgets

(10) – make it into the top 10. Time to plan a bar crawl, perhaps?

WHERE’S WALLET?

Hold up your hand if you’ve ever left your wallet behind; leaving a restaurant,

getting out of a taxi, dashing through the airport, we’ve all done it. And if you’re

the type who makes a habit out of it, help is at hand with this smart travel wallet

that’s constantly connected via Bluetooth to your phone. If you get out of range

the Walli wallet triggers an alert if it ever gets left behind – and even gives you

a handy map to its location. If you make the reverse mistake, just double tap the

corner of the wallet to make your phone flash and beep; and for added peace of

mind the wallet is equipped with RFID protection so you’re fully protected from

portable scanning devices.
