This list is curated by a 265-member panel, including bartenders, bar owners, drinks writers, and cocktail enthusiasts, who vote anonymously on their top bar experiences. Singapore leads the extended list with eight entries, followed by notable bars from Bangkok and Tokyo.

Each of the Indian bars brings something unique to the table. Lair is known for its experimental cocktails and cozy speakeasy vibe. Sidecar, helmed by renowned mixologist Yangdup Lama, continues to receive high praise. Home offers a blend of a sophisticated cocktail bar and a library-style wine-tasting lounge. The Bombay Canteen stands out with its cocktails inspired by classic Indian flavors.
