Time to Prepare!

Calgary BBN assessments to commence in late March

With applications collected for Best Bar None Calgary, this year's Best Bar None applicants are now hard at work preparing for their upcoming assessment visits.

All Best Bar None applicants are visited by a trained assessment team to determine if they meet the standard for BBN accreditation and to collect data for awards judging. The assessment team is made up of Calgary Police Service members and staff members from the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) and The City of Calgary.

All applicants are evaluated using the Best Bar None Criteria Checklist which covers industry best practices that range from patron management to fire safety to first aid. All these best practices increase patron and staff safety and customer service.

The successful accredited venues will be announced in late May 2014.
