(NEXSTAR) – This gives us an idea for the most expensive bar crawl of all time.

Fifty of North America’s best bars were honored in Mexico last week during a beverage-industry ceremony presented by William Reed Ltd., a U.K.-based multimedia firm specializing in the food and drink sector. Ranked by the firm’s 50 Best brand, this year’s list of the “50 Best Bars” in North America includes speakeasies, pubs and cozy cocktail lounges across the continent — but the U.S. is especially well-represented.

Coming in at No. 1 is NYC’s Double Chicken Please, a relatively new cocktail bar serving its take of classic low-ABV cocktails in a front room, and more experimental cocktails “designed to represent a drinkable meal” in the back room, according to 50 Best.

“The Back Room at Double Chicken Please offers inventive craft cocktails that deconstruct, redefine and rebuild iconic dishes into liquid form such as the Japanese Cold Noodle, Cold Pizza, Key Lime Pie, NY Beet Salad, Mango Sticky Rice and others,” reads an excerpt from the bar’s website.

There’s also chicken sandwiches available on the bar’s food menu, of course.

In addition to Double Chicken Please, dozens of U.S. bars were honored in the 2023 rankings, including 11 others in NYC alone, two in Chicago, two in Los Angeles, two in Miami, two in New Orleans, two in D.C., and one each in Denver, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
