The highly anticipated national DRiNK Awards will take place at Shanghai Centre Theatre on Monday, March 18.

The winners of 14 categories in six regions will come together and witness who will take home the most coveted national trophies. We will also announce the winners of four national awards, namely Bartender Brand, Brand Ambassador, Visionary Award, and Founder’s Award at the ceremony.

As in the previous years, the awards ceremony is invite-only. We’re very happy to welcome international bartenders to join the celebration of China’s bar industry once again now that Covid-induced travel restrictions have been completely lifted. A limited number of free tickets will be available to bartenders from overseas. Please send an email to or a DM to DRiNK China on Instagram (Account name: drinkmagazine). The tickets will be given away on a first-come-first-served basis. Cheers!
