South Africa featured only six times in The World’s 50 Best Bars list since it started in 2009. However, this is set to change thanks to Cause Effect’s new status. Cape Town’s venue achieved global recognition, which will inspire other bars to improve their collective cocktail game. Participants agreed that “it’s vital that South Africa – and Africa in at large – participates more actively in global awards, as judges and as potential honourees.”

Last Thursday, the 1–50 honourees were announced live on YouTube and Facebook.
