L.A.'s growing cocktail scene continues to impress, and to toast 2017's top watering holes—and the ultra-talented bartenders who keep them running—Time Out Los Angeles is hosting its second annual Bar Awards. We've enlisted a panel of local industry experts, from bar managers and brand reps to spirit distillers, to help us narrow down this year's categories and nominees. The winners—including new and innovative cocktail bars, wine bars, iconic L.A. staples and more—will be announced at our Bar Awards celebration on May 22. Until then, raise a glass to (and at!) our formidable lineup of finalists of the 2017 Time Out L.A. Bar Awards.
