The awards scheme to promote best practice in the licensed retail sector introduces a hotel category in some areas

Best Bar None​, the awards scheme for licensed premises, has introduced a hotel category in some areas of the country to recognise their importance in the licensed retail sector.

Usually only applicable to pubs, bars and clubs, Best Bar None is used as a solution to alcohol related issues and as a way of promoting the night time economy in town centres by highlighting safe and well run venues.

Now schemes in some areas, such as Birmingham, where hotels play a key part of the night time economy, are rewarding hotels who demonstrate a responsible attitude to tackling alcohol related issues.

BBN chairman Lord Redesdale said: Hotels obviously play a vital role in the night time economy so it is fitting that they should be included in such as crucial initiative as Best Bar None. It is excellent that they were recognised in their unique position and judged accordingly within schemes.

“It is vital that BBN schemes are reflective of their local areas and by introducing specific categories not only boosts the profile of the scheme but ensure involvement from all sectors of the licensed retail sector.”
