The application process will be in-depth (approx 200 questions), and is designed to take significant consideration from those seeking to be awarded 1, 2 or 3 PIN status. This detailed application allows a venue to showcase what it is they are most proud of and will provide the background information a reviewer will use when visiting the bar.
Beyond explanation and demonstration of drinks programme and overall concept, venues will have the opportunity to communicate what truly makes their bar top tier, including systems and processes, behind the scenes infrastructure, considerations to staff wellbeing and DEI practises. Environmental endeavours will be weaved throughout all eight modules as a key measure of excellence.
It will be possible to complete The Pinnacle Guide Application form in your preferred language and it does not need to be completed in one-sitting – to ensure venues are completely confident in their final application.
The application form makes up two thirds of the overall points available within the The Pinnacle Guide framework.
Bars will be charged a small admin fee to enter into the application process, tiered based on the venue’s company revenue bracket. This admin fee allows The Pinnacle Guide to stay independent and means that appropriate resource can be allocated to the assessment of each venue’s application.
How will the admin fee work?
