The Bar Awards Hong Kong 2016 winners announced during recent industry event at Zuma Hong Kong


September 26th, 2016


Following its 2014 launch in Singapore, The Bar Awards – an industry-centric program that recognises excellence within the bar and hospitality industry – expanded this year to cover the vibrant Hong Kong bar scene. Awards are allocated across various categories including Best Bartender, Best Cocktail Bar, and Best Wine Bar. Finalists in each category were first selected by a nomination process of both public and panel voting, before the finalists in each category lists were voted on by a selected panel of local and regional bar industry identities.

Hong Kong award winners were announced at an industry presentation event held recently at the bar of Zuma in Central.
