January 2011 Newsletter


In With the New, and Out With the Old 2011 is officially upon us, and the crew at is starting the New Year with a bang, while acknowledging all those places that made 2010 so great. The first week of January is said to be the slowest bar week of the year, but we have managed to keep quite busy compiling statistics, votes and opinions about bars, clubs, lounges, and pubs across the United States from last year.

This has culminated in the Best of Top 100 of 2010 list! users spent their time on our site checking out, reviewing and voting for all kinds of drinking establishments from neighborhood taverns in small towns to mega clubs on the Strip in Vegas. We could have released the full list of 100 top bars, but we are going to tease our users a little by making this a two part release - we know, the suspense is killing you (#51-100 will be released this week).

Best of Top 50 List

We hope this list is as fun to go through as it was to make, and we look forward to hearing some comments and suggestions about this list on If there are drinking establishments that you feel deserve to make the 2011 Best of Top 100, simply go to the site, find your favorite bars and VOTE.

Congratulations to all the establishments that made the 2010 list and good luck to everyone in 2011. Have a fun and safe January and make sure to check back to this week for the 2nd 50 bars.
