Strøm Bar, Copenhagen
Why It's a Standout: Located on Gråbrødretorv Square in Copenhagen's Inner City, this Art Deco-inspired bar opened in September 2012 and gained immediate renown for having cocktails on tap, a first in the city. The guys behind the bar plied their trade in top cocktail venues all over Europe including Milk & Honey in London. And while the seasonal drinks are crisp and delicious, according to Abigail Gullo, Strøm also has the best customer service in the city.
The Drink to Order: Gullo likes the bar's take on the Sidecar, which is made with a champagne simple syrup. "The yeasty quality of the beautiful grapes combine to bring out the raw cane quality of the sugar. [It's] cognac and champagne, or what I like to call hot grape-on-grape action."
