7 Chefs Pick Their Favorite Bars; Philippe Wine Dinner

GLOBAL BARS— Eater National has compiled a list of the best bars in the world according to seven different chefs. "Chefs, for the most part, like to drink. So, on the final day of Cocktail Week, seven of them share where they like to get their booze around the world. Among the selections are some of the world's most renowned and hottest cocktail bars, such as PDT in New York City, the charming patio of The Broken Shaker in Miami, and the birthplace of the Negroni Sbagliato, Milan's Bar Basso. There are also some dives on this list, such as the rock-and-roll vibe of Slim's Downtown in Raleigh." [-EN-]
