2013 Nightclub & Bar Award Winners Announced

February 26, 2013 By: Nightclub & Bar

Well deserving clubs, bar, bartenders, DJs and promotional programs earn admiration from industry pros.


The Nightclub & Bar Media Group, a leading provider of information and resource for bars, nightclubs and lounges, is pleased to announce the winners of the 2013 Nightclub & Bar Awards. The Awards program is the premier national nightlife-industry recognition program for applauding excellence in bar and nightclub concept development, operations, promotion, innovation and success.

 “We are truly impressed with the originality and prosperity we saw in the entries,” says Kristen Santoro, Content Director for Nightclub & Bar Media Group. “Our judges reported that it was a tough competition as there were many well-deserving venues that encompass the essential qualities we look for during the awards process.” 

More than 450 entries were submitted into the 26 categories – 9 Bar, 8 Nightclub and 9 Vegas Nightclub – and reviewed by a panel of judges including the nation’s top nightlife and beverage professionals, hospitality journalists, writers, owners and consultants, eager to recognize excellence in on-premise concepts. Judges ranked their favorite entries first, second and third for each category judged, and a standard mathematical calculation identifies the finalists and, ultimately, the winners in each category.

The winners will be profiled on Nightclub.com and highlighted in various Nightclub & Bar e-newsletters and other media properties; they also will be invited to walk the red carpet at the Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, March 19-21.
