Probably the best bar in the world: reader travel tips Travel | Instant News

We stumbled across Dulle Griet in Ghent last year. This is a fantastic traditional Flemish pub, serving more than 500 beers from around the country. The decor is superb and the staff very friendly. The highlight of the bar is MAX, a thick beer served in a large two liter glass. In an effort to stop people from stealing or breaking their glasses, you must deposit one shoe when ordering MAX, a ceremonial bell is sounded and shoes are held in a basket above the bar until the glass is returned. They are limited to one per customer – definitely a wise choice! Mike L.

Surf on the beach outside Shack, near Galle

The Shack entrance that has no ownership on the busy coastal road between the fort and the entrance to the South Expressway, is tucked between local shops, belies its true location: walk through it and open up to the amazing Bonavista Bay with views of the fort, the old lighthouse and Unawatunapanjung. Large sandy beaches and decks are popular among Galleic expats in the UK, with cold beer, cocktails, cold bite menus and wood-fired pizzas. Add lots of local knowledge, surfing, tours, and the kids and dog friendly vibe, this is the right place to find local scenes. Chris Devonshire-Ellis

De Zotte is a true native bar that captures all the passion and character of Amsterdam, but is not distorted by serving stereotypes for tourists. Close enough to Leidseplein to party late at night, but hidden enough to avoid stags and creeping pubs, and sell a range of amazing Belgian and Dutch beers (and jenever gin) at an affordable, middle-range price. I found this place by asking locals to put a pin on my tourist map of the best pubs in town. He showed me my favorite pub in Europe – an absolute gem. Huw Swanborough

Katerina is perfectly located in the City of Mykonos, in an area known as Little Venice. The area becomes crowded, especially at night, but before sunset is the best time to be at the bar. We had balcony chairs overlooking the sea and the windmill. The cocktails are a bit expensive, but worth it, and if you don’t drink alcohol, like me, you can order a mocktail. A very beautiful sunset. Ruby

Relaxing, rustic style, an open beach bar next to the main pier in the Pacific coast city of Puerto Vallarta. Beautiful view from the pier and lighted beach. A live band that plays a variety of Spanish and Portuguese music with a tropical flavor; a wonderful selection of mixed drinks, as well as beer and wine. Rich coffee is always made fresh, and your cup will continue to be filled. Guacamole, salsa and snacks are very good. Service is attentive, and the waiters are pleasant. You can sit inside or at a candle table on the beach. Watch fishing boats floating on the water, dip your toes in the sand, look at palm trees that sway in the wind … Janice

The birthplace of the gin version of the bloody mary (first called red snapper) often appears in the film: a small bar, shrouded in dark wood, adorned by Maxfield Parrish’s large mural, Old King Cole, which has a dreamlike beauty and is a must-see on NYC trips . It’s not cheap, but it’s also not exclusive or pretentious. Staff welcoming, even when I appeared rain and shorts. It’s a beautiful indescribable sanctuary not far from Fifth Avenue, where you will see ordinary NYers, plus the occasional famous person (Brad Pitt among others). Hint: beer is not expensive by NY standards, after that it is mandatory to bleed

This is a remarkable brewery in Altstadt (old town), broken up into smaller rooms, each with regular visitors – dark wood paneled rooms to larger enclosed spaces. Beer is filled directly from the barrel and then transported to your table. When your glass is almost empty, the bartender will replace it automatically, which makes it difficult to “drink” and leave. Sadly, it took an hour to explain that we don’t want more! Keir
Bar ‘Take a chance’, Barcelona
These days it’s amazing to fall into a bar and try it, not because the review sites and social media order you to go there, but because it looks interesting. There are so many bars at Carrer de Martínez de la Rosa in Barcelona. I can’t tell you the name because I’ve forgotten; does not have any website or social media, and is not on Google Maps. You have to explore the road and look for a small bar with a cozy red hue where the staff all wear white shirts, vests and ties, and where they make the most elegant cocktails. If you find it, I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Like we do, you just have to take risks. Robert Cullen

The most prominent bar I’ve ever visited in Vietnam, maybe in Asia, right on the Saigon river. Lychee martini, fish jump, sunset, whetting whetting. Don’t get Somerset Maugham more than this. John

Walk across the gently raised grassy fields that block the ocean view. A small building that has an iron door. An elevator in the most unlikely places. Down maybe two or three floors. The tunnel smells musty with a bend. Intoxicating aroma and the smell of onions floating along the tunnel. Suddenly, dazzling sunlight. We have appeared in the middle of the cliff. Salted sea mixed with the aroma of the right cuisine. Cava in an ice bucket. We perched on the sand, sea and waves, then went out to open the water. All wedged between brown sandstone cliffs. This place is not possible. John Read
Because of the coronavirus crisis there are no prizes offered for the best entry this week – although hopefully it will return at some point
