Alongside the well-made yet speedy cocktails, Employees Only also serves up restaurant-quality food, which guests tuck into at tables or at the counter all through the night. A mainstay on The World’s 50 Best Bars list for ten consecutive years, this joint boasts killer playlists and the friendliest of staff who are equally happy to chat drinks or join in for shots.
