Proof on Main is a proud Top Four Finalist for the Best American Hotel Bar award as a part of Tales of the Cocktail’s 11th Annual Spirited Awards. Since their debut in 2007, the Spirited Awards® have recognized the best and brightest in the cocktail and spirits industries. The award categories stretch from bartenders and brand ambassadors to bars and writers in order to ensure that every aspect of the industry receives recognition for its contributions. For these efforts, the Spirited Awards® have grown to become one of the most coveted honors an industry professional can receive. Each year, a panel of 140 industry experts take part in a week-long voting process to choose their picks for Awards finalists. These votes are then reviewed and tallied up by Advisory Committee Members to determine the top finalists in each category.

Our Proof on Main team will be heading to the award ceremony, taking place on Saturday, July 22 at the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans, where the winner will be announced live in front of their peers in the cocktail and spirits industry. In addition to the prestige that comes with winning a Spirited Award®, finalists will receive a Riedel crystal trophy to commemorate their accomplishments.
