Best Bar Globes in the World

The bar globe is a curious combination: a globe that comes apart at the equator, often with a hinge on a meridian ring, to reveal glasses and bottles of booze. Whoever invented this contraption must have been three sheets to the wind: a sphere is surely the least efficient shape for a drinks cabinet!

Here’s a curated collection of the best bar globes you can buy from around the world.
