After the success of the inaugural Nightclub & Bar Awards in 2010, with winners including XS Nightclub in Vegas as Mega Club of the Year and Connecticut’s Willimantic Brewing Co. as Beer Bar of the Year, we’re gearing up for our 2011 Awards, and nominations are already being accepted online at www.nightclubandbarawards.com.
This year we’re looking for more of the same top quality establishments and people who entered last year, so nominate your favorite Bartender of the Year, Cocktail Lounge of the Year, New Club of the Year and more. We’ll honor the winners in Nightclub & Bar Magazine, online at nightclub.com and in Las Vegas at the 2011 Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show on March 7-9, to which winners receive complimentary entry.
New this year are the Las Vegas Nightclub categories. Designed to recognize the uniqueness of the Vegas market, these awards include New Club, Mega Club, Resident DJ and Ongoing Promotion of the Year. Also new: Dayclub of the Year for both Nightclub and Las Vegas Nightclub categories.
