Hosted a great promotion this year? Opened a hot new bar or club? Think your bartender is the best? Then enter the 2011 Nightclub & Bar Awards and see if you earn the spotlight at the 2011 Nightclub & Bar Show and coverage in Nightclub & Bar Magazine and on nightclub.com. If you win, you’ll really have something great to shout about and a new way promote your bar or club to the marketplace! When Willimantic Brewing Company won 2010 Beer Bar of the Year, owner Dave Wollner brewed a Vegas Victory Ale, threw a party to a packed house and donated the proceeds to a local charity.
This year’s awards program is bigger and better, with a new Las Vegas Nightclub category – to reflect the unique nature of that market -- and also the addition of Dayclub of the Year. Nightclub Award categories include Single Promotion of the Year, Ongoing Promotion, New Club, Mega Club Ultralounge and Resident DJ, while Bar Award categories include Bartender of the Year, Small Wonder Bar, Beer Bar, Cocktail Lounge, Wine Bar, Hotel Bar and Sports Bar.
Operators can nominate their venue or another they admire, and suppliers/vendors, wholesalers, consultants and other industry members are welcome to nominate outstanding nightclubs, bars and restaurants. A panel comprised of the NCB editorial team, select members of the Nightclub & Bar Advisory Board, industry journalists and other industry professionals will judge entries. Winners will be featured in Nightclub & Bar magazine and online at nightclub.com, and celebrated during the 2011 Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, March 7-9, to which they’ll receive complimentary passes.
The deadline for entries is Nov. 5, so go online today at www.nightclubandbarawards.com to learn more, and perhaps earn your place on the red carpet at the 2011 Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show!
