Last night, bar-world glitterati descended upon Ascent Lounge in Columbus Circle to celebrate the third annual Time Out New York Bar Awards. Reps from the 36 nominated Bar Awards finalists joined fellow industry pros and Time Out staffers to find out which barrooms and bar teams would take home one of nine coveted awards, each chosen by a panel of high-profile judges.
This year's illustrious class of winners include Brooklyn newcomers like Jupiter Disco (Best New Bar) to Manhattan staples like Mayahuel (Best Single-Focus Bar). Brand ambassadors including Mitch Bechard of Glenfiddich and Erik Andersson of Hendrick's Gin were on hand to present the Best Bar Family and Bar of the Year awards, respectively.
During the celebrations, party-goers enjoyed a range of cocktails by William Grant and Sons, featuringGlenfiddich and Hendrick's Gin, Segura Viudas and Topo Chico. Check out photos of last night's festivities below.
