The DRiNK Magazine Bar Awards 2016 took place at Wanda Reign on the Bund earlier this month. As you would expect from that venue, it was a fancy ol' affair with seriously high quality production values. The black tie Prohibition-themed ceremony featured a four-course dinner paired with drinks from Dandelyan in London, alongside music from the house band of Nightjar and Oriole, the Bootleg Trio. The boys Watt and Bignold done good.
