Best Bar None is a Home Office approved national award scheme aimed at promoting responsible management and operations of licensed premises. Since starting in Manchester in 2003 the scheme now operates in 75 town centres across the UK and helps reduce alcohol related crime and anti-social behaviour. In 2017 Clapham won the award for the Best New Best Bar None scheme in the UK.

This year the awards were hosted by the London Night Czar Amy Lame and ten awards were given out on the night. Alongside celebrating the achievements of individuals who support the area, prizes were also awarded based on the results of an online vote as well as the results of an assessment process against 76 different licensing criteria.
