The Bar Awards Singapore 2019 Announces its Top 10s

The Bar Awards Singapore 2019 announces the Top 10s before revealing the winners next month. 

2019 marks the sixth year The Bar Awards has come to Singapore, awarding the best bars and hospitality professionals. 

The Top 10 is decided by a combination of public and panel voting. Consumers can nominate their favourite bars and bartenders in the Singapore f&b community. Then The Panel – a group of over 60 respected industry professionals in Singapore – votes from the nominations to determine the Top 10. The Panel will be voting for the second time to determine the full Top 10 ranking and from there, the Top 4 will be extracted and publish here on DRiNK on September 23. The winners will also be extracted from this and announced live at The Bar Awards Party at Zouk (Clarke Quay) on Sunday, September 29.

For full details of all the events leading up to the awards, you can download the calendar here.
