Who do you think deserves that feted Bar Personality of the Year gong? It's a stellar cast with a blend of stalwarts in among some new pretenders to the bar stool this time around.

Where is the Best New Bar this year? It's been a good year for new openings, many of which have already made their mark on the landscape but which stands out for you?

What was your favorite Party of the Year? God knows we've been spoiled for choice in the last 12 months. We've managed to distill a long list down to a handful of what you told us were the best, and now we need you to crown your winner.

And what about the almighty one? What is your Bar of the Year? As always, the big boys on the scene are back in the running, but there were a few surprises in the nominations round for that particular race, and who can rule out a surprise victor?

We've previewed a number of the categories on this year's ballot here, here, here, and here, but talk is cheap and we need you to cast that all-important vote now!
