More than 250 attendees enjoyed IM's Best Bars Party on the night of Jan. 31, and more than 200 votes were cast for the People's Choice Award. In the end, The Aristocrat Pub & Restaurant won the cocktail-making competition from the perspective of partygoers populating the Stouffer Hotel's 2nd-floor ballroom.
The trio of judges at the party noted among their own remarks that Aristocrat's drink was "a refreshing cocktail that reminded us fondly of limoncello and summer evenings on the front porch swing."
Congrats to the victor, and to all of the mix-off's participating bars: Aristocrat, The Ball & Biscuit, Bluebeard, The Brass Ring Lounge, Dorman Street Saloon, Metro Nightclub & Restaurant, The Northside Social, Nicky Blaine's, St. Elmo's 1933 Lounge, Syd's Fine Food & Spirits, Tini, and The Vogue.
More establishments sent owners, managers, and representatives to the Best Bars recognition ceremony in the Stouffer Hotel's 13th-floor penthouse ahead of the public party. The Chatterbox Jazz Club regaled revelers courtesy of a live jazz trio's music for the duration of the two-hour public event.
