Manchester Bar Awards image 1

As the name suggests, these awards celebrate the best people and places in the Manchester Bar scene. It's a tight-knit community and there's friendly rivalry amid the competition to win these awards. As with all the best awards, it's not so much the winning but celebrating everyone's achievements afterwards.

The awards were hosted at Bunny Jackson's by Adam Binnersley, Joey Butcher and Nate Booker.

We were so fortunate to have some of the best from the Manchester scene in one room to recognise and celebrate all the hard work and passion from the last year. We believe the hospitality scene in Manchester is truly one of the best in the country and it's forever progressing and developing. We are so happy to be a part of it. The awards wouldn't have been possible without the support of our esteemed sponsors and the awesome team at Bunny's. To all those that joined our panel and voted in the group, to all our nominees, shortlisters and winners thank you and keep on pushing. Onwards and upwards, together.
