Calgary's Winning BBN establishments announced

The best of Calgary's bars, pubs, lounges and clubs were announced at Calgary's 4th Annual Accreditation and Awards Event on June 15, 2015 at the Telus Spark.

Two of the bars (Hudsons Shawnessy and Jetz Bar and Lounge) managed to collect their fourth consecutive trophies in their respective categories despite increased competition from their competitors.
