The 11th Spirited Awards named bars in Soho, Notting Hill and the Southbank alongside bars in New York, Boston, Washington, DC and St Germain as some of the word's greatest bars.

Dandelyan, at the Mondrian on the South Bank, won three awards: not only was it named best international hotel bar, ​but also best international bar team, as well as scooping the prestigious World's Best Cocktail Bar award.

Meanwhile, Trailer Happiness, on Portobello Road, won Best International High Volume Cocktail Bar, while Swift, on Old Compton Street, won Best New International Cocktail Bar.

The awards were voted on by a panel of experts, who said Dandelyan was "highly competitive".

World's best bars

It's not the first time the capital's cocktail bars have been given recognition: last October London claimed nine spots in the World's 50 Best Bars ranking.

Dandelyan, described as a partnership between "the two most bonkers bartenders in the business" came third in the overall ranking and second in the capital. It was pipped to the top spot by The American Bar at The Savoy, which was ranked second place in the overall list, and was named Europe's best bar.

Also named in the list were The Connaught Bar in Mayfair, The Gibson in Old Street, Happiness Forgets in Hoxton, Nightjar on City Road, Bar Termini on Old Compton Street, Oriole on Smithfield Street and Callooh Callay on Rivington Street.
