The food and drinks landscape of Asia is thriving and, over the years, many internationally renowned institutions have supported this with numerous awards and recognitions. Compiling a list of Asia’s best eateries and bars, therefore, is a monumental task. But recently the annual Asia’s 50 Best Bars list came out and it had some pleasant surprises for Indians.
Bengaluru’s Four Seasons Hotel’s famous bar Copitas made its way to the list and ranked at #38, a significant move up from its #44 spot last year.
The list is widely considered a reputed and accurate predictor of the latest and future trends in the industry and, ever since its establishment in 2016, has recognised only the best of the best in bars and restaurants around the continent. Over 650 anonymous drink connoisseurs from around the globe voted for the bars in the list and on July 18, the names were announced in a ceremony in Singapore.
Situated on the 21st floor of the renowned hotel, Copitas draws the city’s coolest crowds for a good time and delicious cocktails. Bar manager Sarath Nair and his team are known to give inventive twists to the classics that keep the patrons coming back for more.
The simple drinks, paired with delectable bar nibbles, are the reason why the bar found a place in the list for the second time in five years, according to the official statement by the award organisers.
The floor-to-length windows of the tastefully decorated bar offer stunning panoramic views of the city and are perfect for leisurely sundowners or a nightcap.
“We are privileged to have featured on the list twice in the short time since the launch of Copitas. The listing is a testimony to the constant commitment of Four Seasons to delight our guests with exceptional experiences. We invite residents of Bengaluru and our guests from around the world, to come and experience the magic of Copitas,” says Reuben Kataria, GM Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru.
