Dandelyan, NoMad, Bell Among Big Winners at TOTC 2017
Among the big winners, Dandelyan, the swanky Mondrian hotel bar in London took home 3 awards while bartenders Jeffrey Bell from Please Don't Tell (New York, NY) / Columbia Room (Washington, DC) and Shingo Gokan of Speak Low (Shanghai, China) took home Best Bartender awards for US and World respectively. Among other winners, the incredible NoMad Bar (New York, NY) took home the title of best American Bar Team, rounding up New York's supremacy in the competition.
As for 2018, no one knows what's next. As people leave Tales this year, the community takes home some great new ideas, some exciting new bottles and some even better reads in the search for better cocktails everywhere.
It's been exactly one day since the Spirited Awards and we are already wondering what's on deck for the summer of 2018. We will most certainly be there to find out.
