Check out photos from the 2018 Time Out New York Bar Awards

This past Monday we gathered bar folks from across the city at Analogue in the West Village for our Time Out New York Bar Awards ceremony. With the help of our panel of industry insiders, we were able to crown the best bars, cocktails and bartenders in our great city from new arrivals and specialty spots to delightfully-sticky dives and legacy greats.

It wouldn’t be a celebration of all things boozy if we couldn’t raise a glass to toast the winners. Luckily, spirits were high thanks to Bar Awards sponsors William Grant & Sons, featuring Hendrick’s Gin and Hudson Whiskey, as well as Segura Viudas, who brought specially made cocktails (or trays of small bottles of bubbly Brut and rosé, in the case of Segura) for our guests.

When it came time for the awards presentation, winners and nominees alike cheered and whistled in excitement for the recognition these pros rightfully deserved. Check out the full list of winners here, and gawk at some photos from the evening below.
