Program growing every year

Grande Prairie's newest accredited bars showing off their BBN plaques and trophies.

Another year of growth and collaboration was recognized and celebrated at the 4th Annual Best Bar None Grande Prairie Accreditation and Awards Event at Holiday Inn and Suites on Tuesday, September 12.

Eleven of the city's leading bar operators joined the program partners to recognize this year's accredited bars, pubs and liquor-licensed establishments.

Best Bar None Grande Prairie is a partnership of the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC), the City of Grande Prairie, Grande Prairie Fire Department and RCMP. The program partners work closely with the industry to enhance patron safety as well as compliance to regulations.

The eleven accredited locations in Grande Prairie are:
Bar One
Better Than Fred's
Boston Pizza Northside
Boston Pizza Westgate Drive
Crown and Anchor Pub
The Den Pub and Carvery
Diamonds Gentlemen's Club
Great Northern Casino
Howlers Lounge
Maddhatters
Mr. Mike's Steakhouse Casual

These Grande Prairie bar operators wanted to demonstrate clearly to the public that they value patron safety, responsible liquor service and being a good neighbour. Working hard to achieve Best Bar None accreditation is their way of showing they are industry leaders and proud of the operations they run.

Congratulations to the team in Grande Prairie - Best Bar None is growing.
