Drinks International, a cocktail industry publication, has released its annual list of the 50 best bars in the world, and a Boston locale has made the list.

Barbara Lynch’s Drink Boston was ranked the 46th-best bar in the world, thanks to the restauranteur’s unique concept, which the publication called” a modern bar with a serious commitment to serious cocktails complete with neighbourhood bar vibe.”

That’s a pretty apt description, but the list still seems a bit odd. While a number of New York City bars made the list, the exclusion of Rattle and Hum is glaring. San Francisco’s Tommy’s makes the list, but City Beer Store would have also been a worthy selection.

Any other Boston bars that should have made the list? Mind you, Sullivan’s Tap was obviously robbed.

Here’s the entire list.
