Kingston's night time economy had plenty to celebrate after the Best Bar None awards took place on Tuesday at McCluskys.

More than 20 awards and accreditations were presented on the night, after a record number of entries, demonstrating the importance and value of Kingston's night time economy.

There were also two new categories introduced to the event as a UK first. 

The award for Best on the Door celebrated the security services in the Town Centre, with Professional Security's Brett McMann travelling down from Yorkshire to present the award to the winners, host venue McClusky's.

The public were also able to show their support for their local venues in this year's event as they were invited to vote for Best Behind the Bar which was presented by the Surrey Comet to Woody's.

Ros Morgan, Chief Executive of Kingstonfirst said: "There was a great atmosphere at the awards with lots to celebrate too. We have held the Best Bar None awards in Kingston for seven years and they have helped us to demonstrate Kingston is one of the safest boroughs in London. The awards are nationally recognised and supported by the Home Office demonstrating their value to the night time economy and their contribution to the local community. I would like to congratulate all of our winners and give a special thanks to everyone who was involved in the awards and made the night such a success."
