Once an application has passed the assessment stage, anonymous reviewers will be allocated to the venue and briefed with the specific bar’s submission.
The anonymous reviewer’s visit will entail verification of information submitted during the application as well as personal feedback on the more tangible elements of great hospitality. As with all stages of the process, venues will be assessed in terms of appropriateness to their own concept.
The key to this part of the anonymous review process is to assess the “feeling” generated by the bar within the reviewer, through the drinks service, hospitality and ambience, factoring in the thoughtful touches that elevate a guests experience.
Each venue will receive at least two, if not more, anonymous visits before PINNED status is confirmed.
