Williams & Graham was named Best American Bar at the Spirited Awards which took place on Saturday night during the Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans. Over the past four years, famed bartender Sean Kenyon and his team of superbly talented bar professionals have consistently raised the standard for the cocktail scene in Denver and have put the Mile High City on the national and international map with creative drinks and extraordinary hospitality.
"This award is so gratifying for us, because it is an entire team effort," said Kenyon. "From the hosts to our kitchen staff, our family comes to work everyday not looking to win awards, but striving to make our guests happy."
Kenyon is not at all stranger to success and accolades. He won the American Bartender of the Year award last year in the same ceremony. Williams & Graham has been named among the world's 50 best bars last year, among other significant nods, and has been a finalist in the Best American Bar Team category at the Spirited Awards this year. Last year, the speakeasy was a finalist in that category as well as the one it just won.
"It is huge not only for us, but for our city. Once again the world has taken notice about what is happening in Denver's cocktail and culinary scene," Kenyon said of the award. Congrats Williams & Graham!
