Best Bar Award Winners
Every Best Bar None accredited bar is simply the best for taking your fun and safety seriously. While every accredited bar is one of the best, some earn the privilege of also being award winners.
To be accredited, every bar goes through a rigorous set of standards that ensures licencees comply with safety standards including responsible liquor service and provide a positive experience for their customers. In addition to this standard criteria, those who go above and beyond are recognized for achieving a higher level of safety and patron care than required.
The winners in each category are selected by local Best Bar None Steering Committees made up of municipal government and law enforcement officials. The bars are evaluated based on scoring from the standard checklist (over 100 criteria), compliance and regulation standards and by simply going the extra mile.
If you visit any of these locations, look for the Best Bar None logo on the front door or the huge, shiny Best Bar None trophy on display.
