About the Awards

This year’s Scottish Bar and Pub Awards are fast approaching and voting is now open!

The awards, now in their 24th year, are Scotland’s longest running licensed trade awards and past winners have gone on to great success.

This year to have your say simply log in using Facebook, Twitter, Google or email to cast your vote online.

This year’s awards will be held on the 20th of August 2019 in the Glasgow Hilton, who did a tremendous job last year.

Every vote counts as the ten competitors with the most votes from each category will receive a visit from ‘mystery shoppers’ who will assess the choices and report back.

From there the ten will be whittled down to four and the finalists will receive a visit from the judges along with two complimentary tickets to the prestigious award ceremony held at the Hilton Hotel in William Street, Glasgow on the 20th August.

So whether your pub prides itself on its fancy cocktails or how warmly you welcome dogs, be sure to tell your customers to get online and vote for you and get voting for your favourite places too.
