Student nightclub, 5th Avenue, has been awarded the top accolade at Manchester's Best Bar None awards 2005.
The Best Bar None Awards scheme, organised by Greater Manchester Police's (GMP) City Safe unit aims to reward safe licensed venues that provide good management, a safe and enjoyable environment for customers, discourage binge-drinking and prevent alcohol-related crime.
The top city centre pub for the second year running has been awarded to Sinclair's Oyster Bar while 5th Avenue also came top in the best nightclub category.
Inspector Steve Greenacre from GMP's City Safe team said: "This year's entries have been of an extremely high standard and I would like to congratulate 5th Avenue for its dedication to creating a safe environment for its customers and claiming the title of Manchester Best Bar None 2005.
"The awards ceremony, the largest of its kind in the UK, was a culmination of hard work between GMP, the government and the drinks industry. The City Safe campaign has now become a national leader in its field, with interest being expressed from across the UK and around the world". Home Office Minister, Paul Goggins, said: "The Best Bar None scheme is an excellent initiative that highlights some of the best run bars in Manchester.
"This year's winners are all bars that lead the way in responsible retailing, taking forward sensible initiatives to help ensure that alcohol-related problems are removed from the night time economy, and I pay tribute to all their work."
