Asia’s 50 Best Bars ceremony changes formats due to the COVID-19 epidemic. By Holly Graham.

In sad but not unexpected news, this year’s Asia’s 50 Best Bars ceremony will not be happening on the ground in Singapore, but instead will switch to a virtual format. 

Due to the ever growing list of travel bans caused by the outbreak of COVID-19 – and in the interest of practicing social distancing – the organisation was left with little choice, and we believe they’ve made the right one.

The ceremony will happen on Thursday, May 14 2020 as planned in the new virtual format and will be streamed from 50 Best’s social media platforms from 7pm, and will also be covered right here on DRiNK as usual. 

50 Best has said there’s more information to come soon, so stay tuned and stay safe.
