To ensure a fun, safe night out on the town, Best Bar None, a program promoting higher public safety and customer service standards for bars and nightclubs, was launched in January.
Based on a successful program out of the UK and introduced in Edmonton in 2010, Best Bar None is an accreditation and awards program that promotes responsible management and operations of licensed premises. The program works as a collaborative between the licensed operator, the Province, Calgary Police, Bylaw and Licensing that has resulted in a marked reduction of alcohol related violence. More than 300 pubs, clubs, bars and lounges have been invited to take part in the program to make Calgary's nightlife safer and more enjoyable.
Look for the Best Bar None symbol at the entrance of your favourite pub or nightclub or encourage them to become a member.
