Denver is now officially home to one of the 50 best bars in the world, putting the city in the cosmopolitan company of places like London, Amsterdam, Paris, New York and Boston.

Williams & Graham, the upscale speakeasy in the LoHi neighborhood, has just won the highly competitive award, announced today at a ceremony in London hosted by cocktail historian David Wondrich.

“For the first time someone other than New York City or a big coastal city has made the list, which is great,” said barman and co-owner Sean Kenyon.

“It’s really cool for us, and for our city, because we have a bunch of great bars, and with (chef) Jennifer Jasinski winning the James Beard award last year, it puts more of a spotlight on what’s going on in the culinary world here in Denver, which is awesome.”
