Back in August we launched NDML’s very first Yorkshire Nightlife Awards. We invited members of the public to submit their nominations, telling us why their favourite venue or nightlife personality deserved to win.
Over 120 nominations were submitted, with nominations ranging from the heart-warming to the hilarious.
An expert panel of judges were appointed to help us whittle down the nominations. Judges include: Paul Kinsey (owner of Harewood Group), Michael Kill (CEO of the Night Time Industries Association), Victoria Romero-Trigo (Director of NDML) and Ollie Calvert (Head of Brand at NDML).
After careful deliberation from our judging panel, we have decided on our winners.
- Best Bar: The Maven and MOJO Bar
- Best Nightclub: Acapulco
- Best Restaurant: Red’s True Barbeque
- Best Start-Up: We Love Quiz
- Best Nightlife Personality: Marigold Addams
Congratulations to our winners!
We’re delighted that, in such uncertain and challenging times, we can provide some positivity. The industry is fighting tirelessly to continue to serve customers and keep their doors firmly open. Now more than ever, we need to recognise the hard work of our nightlife heroes and celebrate everything they do.
Our Yorkshire Nightlife Awards shows our appreciation for these vital venues. We’ll be sending certificates to each of our worthy winners and hope they proudly display these in recognition of their great work. Opening and operating any nightlife venue is a challenge, so we take our hats off to those doing it so brilliantly.
