Time Out Bar Awards 2014

tosba-main-482x298

Time Out y’all. So far ahead of the trends that they’re holding the 2014 Bar Awards in 2013.

What’s more, there is a Melbourne version for the first time ever, and the Sydney one will be held on an island during the day.

Ticket links at the bottom, after the nominees. You’d be mad not to get on board.

Drinking on Mondays. It’s the new Friday night.

Looking for the hot ticket for next Monday night? Get yourself a ticket to the Time Out Shakedown, the boys in the poster above will be battling it out to mix the greatest cocktail of all time.

There will be drinks, there will be food, there will be live music, there will be banter. I will be judging. It will be marvelous.

Tickets here, and details here.

To have a drink at the best new cocktail bar in the world, you can go to New York, or Darlinghurst.

Heartfelt congratulations to Sven Almenning and the team at Eau de Vie, picking up not one but three nominations in the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards overnight.

These awards really are the global stage and nominations for Best Cocktail List, Best Drinks Selection and Best New Cocktail Bar are a testament to a bar that sets out for perfection and delivers it to both a capacity room and lonely drinks nerd, perched at the bar.

Time to start practicing your Sazeracs and book a ticket to N’awlins boys…

Southern Hemisphere also represented by Naren Young for Cocktail Writing – Author & Sam Ross for Best International Bartender, but you’ll have to visit New York to see either of them.

You can read the full list of nominations here.
