Forbes Travel Guide (“FTG”), the global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, today unveiled its Verified List for 2019’s World’s Best Hotel Bars, naming two of The Peninsula Hotels’ United States properties – Z Bar at The Peninsula Chicago and The Club Bar at The Peninsula Beverly Hills – among only 44 bars around the world to earn the accolade. This comes on the heels of the Forbes Five-Star Awards announcement in February 2019, in which The Peninsula achieved Forbes Five-Star status across all ten of its hotels, resulting in The Peninsula Hotels being the first and only hotel brand to achieve the highest possible FTG rating for all its hotels.
“We are honored for two of our US bars to be recognized amongst this elite group of establishments around the world,” said Maria Razumich-Zec, Regional Vice President and General Manager of The Peninsula Chicago. “Our teams delight in creating bespoke atmospheres for guests that are unique to each destination. Both bars in Chicago and Beverly Hills deliver unforgettable experiences through curated music, intuitive service, cocktails and wine, plus exceptional cuisine.”
