The results for the World's 50 Best Bars 2019 have been announced and The Clumsies in Athens has once again been named one of the Top 10, coming in at number 6.

Located in the heart of Greece’s capital city, the sophisticated all-day bar is something truly unique in the global bar scene and has been awarded time and time again for its uniqueness.

The interior is filled with natural light and the décor features rustic wood, bright whites, and turquoise fixtures accentuating the relaxed vibe.

From the luscious and endless cocktail list to the delicious bar food and great service, it’s no wonder this popular joint has helped put Athens on the map as one of the world’s best bars.

“Whether for the high-class cocktails, homely food, open-armed Greek hospitality or charming ambiance, The Clumsies is a place in which everyone feels at home. Set in a townhouse in downtown Athens, The Clumsies freely flows through the ground floor, from the statement bar at the front to the quieter back room and terrace where you’ll find a wide staircase that climbs to a private bar and billiard table. If the provision of homely hospitality has been fundamental to the success of The Clumsies, its latest menu narrows in on the customer further. The Clumsies Revisited is a compilation of the bar’s greatest hits, with simplified methodologies for guests to recreate the cocktail magic at home. A bar launched on a tight budget in a recession by two aspiring young bartenders – Vasilis Kyritsis and Nikos Bakoulis – The Clumsies was a smash from the start with locals and international travellers alike. For the past five years it’s been able to call The World’s 50 Best Bars its home too,” they announced at the awards in London.

The Greek capital also took the number 31 spot with Baba Au Rum, another popular drinking spot in the centre of Athens. “Celebrating a decade since it opened its doors in downtown Athens, Baba Au Rum is bar-world royalty. As the name suggests, this is a rum specialist, but one that does not confine itself to the usual tropical tiki trappings,” the judges announced.
