Last year’s Love London Awards saw 16,000 nominations and 75,000 votes cast for 5,000 venues across the city. That, as Led Zeppelin once said, is a whole lotta love.
Now, it’s time to reward a whole new crop of venues for their dedication to making Londoners’ lives better. As before, we want to know about the restaurants, bars, cafés, shops and cultural venues where you live that make the rest look like amateurs: the people pouring the smoothest lattes, cooking the juiciest burgers and mixing the punchiest cocktails, all with a winning smile.
Right now we’re at the voting stage – the final and all-important chance for Londoners to make sure their favourite venues come out on top. You can vote in as many areas and as many categories as you like, but crucially you can only vote for one venue in each category – this is a winner-takes-it-all kinda situation – so think carefully before deciding who to heap your love upon (full details can be found in our Love London Awards FAQ).
Oh, and if you’re the travelling type, you’ll be pleased to hear that, as of this year, the Love Awards have gone global, meaning you can also big up your favourite places in Paris, Lisbon, New York, Chicago and LA. Love does make the world go round, after all.
