There’s nothing like sundowners at sunset, or cocktails on the beach. So, when it comes to booking a vacation, finding a luxury villa to rent near a good cocktail bar is top of many people’s list.
From raising a glass on the crisp mountains of Aspen and sinking back poolside drinks in Ibiza, to the glamour of St Barths and sun kissed shores of Miami – we take a look at the cities with the best cocktail bars in the world.
Apres-ski in Aspen
The popular ski resort of Aspen has carved out a reputation for being a playground for the rich and famous. Hand-in-hand with this is a plethora of pubs, bars and clubs to keep the entertainment going all night long. Ever-popular with A-listers, you never know who you might bump into, Mariah Carey, Bella Hadid or Elle McPherson – all big fans.
As you’d expect, most luxury vacation homes in the area come with their own bar. However, when the high-rollers decide to mix it up, they head to Element 47 at ‘The Nell Hotel’. With a wine offering equally impressive as its cocktail list, you are spoilt for choice. But to keep the chilled vibe going settle for a glass of frose which is bang on trend right now.
Enjoy the Liberty of Miami
In a city with hundreds of late night haunts and five-star bars, how do you decide where to go? That’s where the World’s 50 Best Bar Guide comes in handy! Sweet Liberty is the only Miami establishment to make the list, known for its award-winning bartenders and selection of spirits that have received worldwide acclaim.
With live music and a mouth-watering menu to boot, this has become a favorite with late-night revelers. Open till 4 AM, you might find yourself bleary eyed returning to your Miami luxury house rental!
From perky potions such as ‘She Said Yes’, to a twist on classics such as ‘Collins Park’, there’s something for every palette in this ever-changing and eclectic cocktail menu.
Fizz by the Sea
As far as iconic bars go, the Blue Marlin in Ibiza is the stuff that legends are made of. Here, the rich and beautiful go to see and be seen, including; Beyonce, Kate Moss and Sylvester Stallone amongst famous visitors.
A hop, skip and shot away from Cala Jondal beach and the elite Ibiza luxury rentals in the area, it’s a popular spot day and night. Moor up by private yacht just in time for sunset, and pick from many of the cocktails on offer. Or simply do as the locals and opt for glass of bubbly or even an ‘Aperol Sprtiz’ and look oh-so-cool!
Rockin’ all Hours
The Billionaire’s playground of Eden Rock is a stalwart on this idyllic Caribbean island. Popular with a chic clique, this has become the ‘go to’ place for gastronomic treats of all kind. Synonymous with fabulous New Year’s parties, it remains ever-cool, especially with the Remy Bar set to launch later this year.
Whether you’re staying on site, at a nearby luxury villa, or on your own superyacht, all are welcome in this lively spot. The ‘Iced Flower’ cocktail simply must be tried – it combines hibiscus, lemon, apple and vodka for an uber-quaffable drink, and taste of the island.
Villazzo offers a wide selection of luxury house rentals for a five-star get-away. With outstanding customer service and an unrivaled portfolio of properties, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable stay.
