About

The industry has voted – here are the finalists for Bar Awards 2024

On June 14, we dropped the full list of nominations in this year's Bar Awards across 11 award categories including Bar of the Year, Hotel of the Year, Best Live Music Venue, and Bartender of the Year.

The hospitality industry voted, and this list was whittled down to just five finalists across each of the award categories. We now hand the difficult task of deciding who the winners are over to our esteemed judges

The winners will be revealed on August 5 at the Bar Awards event. Check out the full list of finalists below.
