Last year there was only one Tokyo bar in the global top 50: High Five at #23. It’s kept the same spot in the Asia rankings this year, so should we expect it in the global top 50 again this year? Will it be joined by other Tokyo bars? We’ll find out tonight!
Just a bonus: here’s an interview with Nico de Soto, who will complete visiting all 50 bars on the 2016 list soon.
