The 50 best bars in the world were just announced — and number 1 is a Wall Street favorite

Drinks International magazine's prestigious list of the 50 Best Bars in the World was announced Thursday, and there are some surprises. The globe spanning list, now it's 8th year, recognizes drink excellence around the world, but out of the 10 best bars in the world, only one isn't in New York or London.

The Dead Rabbit — a Wall Street favorite — nabbed the number one spot from London's The Artesian, a 4-time best bar favorite that fell off the list entirely after a number of talented staff departed. 

The Dead Rabbit is an Irish-style pub with 145 varieties of Irish whiskey owned by two Belfast natives, with a casual atmosphere in Downtown Manhattan. Its upstairs "Parlor" is a little more retrained, with the feel of a traditional cocktail bar. The bar is favorite of Wall Street workers, tourists, locals, and others who frequent the downtown area.

The awards were judged by a poll of 476 experts including renowned mixologists, cocktail historians, and other experts to arrive at this list, which you can see in full below:
