Hospitality winners

VOICELAND venues cleaned up at the Australian Hotels Association awards, snagging 15 gongs.

AHA judges were impressed by a couple of newcomers:

• Mt Lawley’s new dessert and cocktail bar Measure picked up the award for best new venue

• Best cocktail bartender went to Bjorn Karason, at the newly opened Tiki as FK in Northbridge

• Petition Beer Corner got best draught beer quality (and no wonder, they have some brave, bold and out-there brews on tap)

Some longer-running favourites took out the top gong in their categories:

• Rosemount Hotel in North Perth won the best live entertainment venue award

• The Voice’s favourite casual first date open-air spot, Mechanics Institute, picked up best small bar and won best bar team

• Paddington Alehouse snagged best sporting entertainment venue

• The Queens in Highgate won best bar presentation and service venue

• Leederville’s Ria Malay Kitchen took out joint best restaurant award with Petition Kitchen

• Central Perth’s Laneway Lounge got best late night venue

• Best venue manager had four joint winners: Steve Halliday from C Restaurant, Katie Chan from Long Chim, Fiona Sham from Varnish on King and Five Bar’s Elodie Boneyd.
