NYC’s Double Chicken Please Tops North America’s 50 Best Bars List (2023)

New York City restaurant and cocktail bar Double Chicken Please was named 50 Best’s No. 1 Bar in North America on Thursday, according to a press release. 50 Best, in partnership with Perrier, recognized the bar at its annual awards ceremony. This year’s event was held in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Double Chicken Please, founded by GN Chan and Faye Chen in 2020, serves up a menu of innovative cocktails inspired by cuisine. From out-of-the-box drinks like the Cold Pizza, the Japanese Noodle, and even the Waldorf Salad, the Lower East Side bar menu shares playful, drinkable takes on classic dishes. The establishment features a front room with a lineup of “taptails,” or cocktails on tap, and a quieter lounge room with gourmet sips and plush seating in the back.

VinePair recognized the cocktail bar with a Next Wave Award for the Best Drinks Program in 2022.

50 Best recognized an impressive lineup of other bars in this year’s list, including Mexico City’s Handshake Speakeasy in second place and New York City’s Katana Kitten in third place. Of the top 50 bars, 12 are located in NYC.
