East Village speakeasy PDT has been dethroned as the “Best Bar In The World” by Artesian, a London bar in the Langham Hotel.That’s according to a new list of the 50 best bars in the world from Drinks International, a trade magazine for the spirits, wine, and beer industry.

Luxury hotel bar Artesian, with its specialty cocktails and world-renowned bartender Alex Kratena, has amassed a number of trophies lately, from Kratena being named the World’s Best International Bartender to claiming the title of World’s Best Hotel Bar, both at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards.
