Top 50 Cocktail Bars community manager, Charli Tomney, said: “I am so excited to bring a new list to the public after such a successful 2022. It’s great to see new names on the list amongst some familiar faces and I can’t wait for the event.”

Present Company is the only Liverpool bar to make the cut. Owner Simon Thompson said: “Making the Top 50 is a huge accolade for us and being the only Liverpool bar on the list is testament to the team.

“They’ve spent the year travelling to the best bars in the world, developing the menu, creating unique cocktail recipes and building a venue that the people of Liverpool love. Making a list like this puts Liverpool as a city on the map and we couldn’t be prouder to be the ones representing the city in this way.”

Present Company is based at 37-39 School Lane, Liverpool, L1 3DA.
