We love it when we hear about the industry banding together to make people smile and support a good cause. So we were happy to hear about “The real Melbourne ISO awards”, a light-hearted awards night to give Melbourne bar people something to smile about and realise there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
One of the committee members Hamish Goonetilleke told us: “It was conceived at the beginning of the second Melbourne lockdown when a group of hospo folk were having a final drink and talking about the industry and our future; the idea for a light hearted Melbourne ISO bar awards was created.”
The Awards night is set for the 15th of August @7pm, the weekend before the proposed re-opening of Melbourne.
Awards categories include and many more…
- Best ISO bod
- Best 20 seater
- Best Bar closure
- Best Livestream
- Best ISO hair
- Best brand content
The nominations are now closed but voting the top 4 of each category will be up for voting. So make sure you like and follow the Facebook page to stay involved.
Just like an actual awards ceremony, they’re asking everyone to dress in their awards best attire (with a comments section for the red carpet ) and the ceremony will be LIVE streamed via Facebook live.
On the night they will have Melbourne hospo figures presenting awards – PLUS a very special INTERNATIONAL guest from TV to present a special ISO award.
