After-Party Venue Announced!

If you haven’t already heard, next year, the Bar Magazine Awards are back – championing the amazing industry for its second year! Taking place on 20th January at the Leonardo Royal Hotel London Tower Bridge, the BMAs 2025 will be back, bigger and better, once again shining a light on the incredible work of hospitality professionals up and down the country.

With the resounding success of the 2024 awards, there is even more reason to get involved in the BMAs 2025. Applying for one of the nine prestigious awards offers the opportunity to be recognised for your and your venue’s contributions to the industry – and in a room full of more than 300 esteemed hospitality professionals, what more could you wish for?

As well as a cause for celebration, the Bar Magazine Awards 2025 presents the unique opportunity for you and your team to mingle with the industry’s greats, reconnect with fellow hospitality peers, meet new faces and form exciting business partnerships while raising a glass to the magnificent sector.

Our friend and rum fanatic, Ian Burrell, will be gracing the stage again as our exceptional host. Bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience, Ian will be leading the special night for hospitality, and presenting awards to the honoured winners. Alongside Ian, we are delighted to announce that the one and only Nicolas Medicamento, AKA Dr Cocktail, will also be returning to the BMAs 2025, offering guests an exclusive, feel-good masterclass – more to be revealed very soon!

Were you at the inaugural BMAs? If you were, you can expect even more fun next year. Attendance to the BMAs 2025 promises exceptional welcome drinks and canapés, complimentary serves from our sponsors’ pop-up bars, a delectable gala-dinner, night long entertainment, the opportunity to win-big at the charity-partnered raffle, as well as a ticket to the exclusive BMA after party!

We are delighted to announce that this year’s official BMA after-party location will be held at Florattica, East-London’s luxurious rooftop bar, where the celebrations will carry on into the early hours. Lara Barnett, Head of Marketing at Florattica, tells us, “At Florattica, guests are treated to an unparalleled experience. Our cocktail menu offers a sensory journey through the aromatic world of flowers, perfectly complemented by an enchanting floral ceiling and unmatched views of London’s skyline.”

The team at Florattica are thrilled to be involved with the BMAs 2025, as Lara explains, “These remarkable individuals deserve an evening dedicated to celebrating their achievements. We’re thrilled to offer them a well-deserved break in our stunning 11th-floor venue, overlooking St. Paul’s and the shimmering lights of London’s Square Mile. Here, they can indulge in a night of exceptional service and an unrivalled cocktail list, enjoying a magical setting that honours their successes well into the night.

“Florattica may be a newcomer, but we’ve always aimed to be a significant player in London’s cocktail scene. Hosting the after-party is not only an honour but also a fantastic opportunity to showcase our venue, our dedicated team, and the exceptional quality we’ve worked hard to deliver since opening our doors,” she adds.
