Time Out New York toasts the best NYC bars at the first ever Time Out Bar Awards

Time Out New York's Time Out Bar Awards
Andrew Werner Time Out New York's Time Out Bar Awards

Last night, Time Out New York feted the best and brightest of the city's bar scene—from longtime stalwarts like Clover Club and the Dead Rabbit to newer standouts like Leyenda and grand-prix winner the NoMad Bar—for the first-ever Time Out Bar Awards 2015. Many of those recently-announced winners and runner-up bars were on site at the event to celebrate their success, while mingling with industry insiders and of course, Time Out New York readers.

During an opening VIP hour, guests toasted with glasses of Lanson Champagne while special drinks supplied by seven of the city's top booze dens flowed freely all throughout the night. Attendees were full of good spirit while sipping cocktails like the sweet Paper Tiger from Death & Co, the celery-smacked Link Ray from the Happiest Hour, and a boozy Maple Old-Fashioned from Readers' Choice runner-up Whiskey Tavern. Brew geeks were also treated to two beers from Proletariat, winner of Best Beer Bar. 

To soak up the libations, platters by sponsor LDV Group's restaurants Scarpetta, American Cut, Lugo and Queen of the Night were passed, as well as battered desserts from Sam's Fried Ice Cream. Between booze and bites, partygoers were delighted by a performance from magic man Dan Sperry of Broadway's THE ILLUSIONISTS. Check out some of the photos below and click here for the full gallery.

I had an amazing time at this event, I would encourage them to do it again and with that people should definitely come out since it's worth what you pay. Very strong and delicious pre-made drinks from my favorite bars in the city.  They run out of some of the cocktail favorites so get there early.

Time Out New York Bar Awards were a success! The cocktails hit the spot and the food kept coming, not to mention the awesome beers and fried ice cream. I would definitely come back next year, though I will agree with Lindsey since there were certain cocktails that ran out quickly.

Great venue, strong drinks, and fried ice cream. Once again TimeOut threw another great event. My only complaint was that they ran out of a lot of the drinks! and I was only 45 minutes late.
