Corner Club, Stockholm
Why It's a Standout: Modeled after London cocktail bars from the 1960s and 1970s, this Old Town neighborhood bar is spearheading the booming cocktail scene in the Swedish capital. In fact, you can't order anything but mixed drinks here. Brandyn Tepper, head bartender of Hinoki & The Bird in Los Angeles says, "Corner Club strictly does classic cocktails with an emphasis on consistency, fresh juices, quality spirits, and quality ice. This does not necessarily reinvent the 'cocktail wheel', rather it helps keep turning in the right direction."
The Drink to Order: Tepper recommends a classic Negroni: "It's bitter, which I like, and it's very comforting for me. It's a simple, easy drink."
