Nevertheless, the finalists have been revealed for the 25 categories in the awards, which are split between the United States and all other countries.

The Best New International Cocktail Bar category presented by Maison Ferrand USA, ensures travellers will find exactly what they want to suit their cocktail needs in foreign countries.

Because really, what is a holiday without some fine drinks?

And it seems as though new cocktail bars are blooming in London, as they make up four of the 11 finalists below.

So, behold these brand spanking new cocktail bar finalists (in no particular order) that travellers should definitely add to their list next time they visit these countries.
