For the second year, Asia’s 50 Best Bars has unveiled the 51-100 list a week ahead of the main ceremony, due to be held in Bangkok on April 28.

Hong Kong is hot on their heels with five bars, and four bars each from Bangkok, Seoul and Taipei. Most importantly, Nepal marks its debut to the list with Blackbird in Kathmandu clocking in at 96. Top of the list at 51 is Taipei’s Room by Le Kief, and Macau makes a comeback to 50 Best with Mesa at 82.
