Seven drinks-related venues in Time’s World’s Greatest Places 2019

From a space-age distillery and a craft beer hotel to a Port and Sherry-themed hostel, we’ve rounded up the drinks-related venues that made Time‘s World’s Greatest Places 2019.

New York-based Time magazine published its second annual list of the world’s greatest places on 22 August, encompassing sites such as museums, parks, restaurants, and hotels.

The publication asked for nominations from its editors and correspondents, as well as industry experts, and evaluated those that they received based on their quality, originality, sustainability, innovation and influence.

The 100 finalists were then grouped under the categories ‘to visit’, ‘to stay’ and ‘to eat and drink’.

Restaurants that made the list include Under, Europe’s first underwater restaurant. The much anticipated site on the coastline of southern Norway opened in April this year, with 7,000 people booking in advance to eat at the 40-cover sub-aquatic eatery.

Also coming up trumps was 20-seat venue Wolfgat in Paternoster, South Africa, which is known for its foraging focus, neo-soul food restaurant Indigo in Houston, Texas and BARN by Biota in New South Wales, Australia, which serves up twice monthly family-style meals including Angus beef cooked over the fallen­-tree-coal fire or honey collected from the hives.

UK venues that made the list, and are not included in the drinks line-up, include the new Victoria & Albert design museum in Dundee and hotel the University Arms Cambridge.
