Melbourne has made a name for itself once again with two of its bars gaining international recognition at a global bar-awards ceremony.

Fresh from a new lick of paint, Brunswick Street favourite Black Pearl has been named tenth on the list for the World’s 50 Best Bar Awards 2015. This is a 27-spot jump from last year, which also won the Black Pearl team the Torres Highest Climber Award.

World Class venue The Everleigh climbed five places from last year's listing to come in at No. 25.

Bars from New York and London dominated the list with cities such as Athens, Berlin and Mexico City making a single appearance on this list.

The awards are held by global drinks magazine Drinks International. The list is put together based on nominations of more than 400 names in the drinks industry.
