Three Malaysian bars have been named in the Asia’s 50 Best Bars list for 2020 – Bar Trigona, JungleBird and Coley Cocktail Bar.

Bar Trigona of Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur is the highest ranking Malaysian bar at No.14.

The bar, which is also known for its sustainable practises and emphasis on local produce and ingredients, also won the Sustainable Bar Award for the second year running.

The other two bars on the list were rum specialists JungleBird at No.37 and Bangsar’s Coley Cocktail Bar at No.48. All three Malaysian bars also featured on last year’s list.

Due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, this year's awards were announced via an online live ceremony on Thursday (May 14).

Singapore’s Jigger & Pony was named the best bar in Asia, and 12 other bars from the country made it on the list.

The top 3 was rounded up by Hong Kong bars – The Old Man at No.2, and COA, whose bartender Jay Khan was named the Bartender’s Bartender for 2020.
