Last year, Smuggler's Cove, Tommy's Mexican Restaurant, and Bar Agricole made Drinks International's coveted (coveted?) World's 50 Best Bars list. This year, sadly, only Smuggler's Cove in Hayes Valley remains on the list, coming in at #24.

The top 10 bars all come from London, New York City, Sydney, and Edinburgh. They are:

1. Artesian, London
3. Nightjar, London
4. Connaught Bar, London
5.American Bar, London
6. Death & Co, NYC
7. The Baxter Inn, Sydney
8. 69 Colebrooke Row, London
9. Calooh Callay, London
10. Bramble, Edinburgh

We asked the editorial staff at Gothamist for their thoughts on #2 PDT. Most of them could not remember being there, but do faintly recall that the drinks were good. So, yeah, the no.-2 ranking is justly deserved.
