Vancouver Magazine Salutes the City’s Best in Class

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

VANCOUVER MAGAZINE SALUTES THE CITY'S BEST IN CLASS
Elisa's Katie Ingram Named Bartender of the Year! –

Vancouver, B.C. (February 7th, 2020) – Drum roll, please. It’s official – Vancouver Magazine has named Elisa’s Katie Ingram Bartender of the Year! We couldn’t be more proud of our very own Katie and applaud her and all the passionate colleagues that make up this great city’s hospitality industry.

Vancouver Magazine’s Drinks issue is just out and announces its 2020 picks for Best Bartender, Best Bar, Best Sommelier, and Best Brewery as part of the Annual Restaurant Awards. To give these prestige categories their own rightful due, Vancouver Magazine dedicates some well deserved space to feature such wonderful and thoughtful stories about these individuals and venues. Mix up a cocktail, sit back, and learn more about Katie's story from her aspirations in the performance arts to taking center stage behind the bar.

“I cannot even begin to say how excited I am about this news!,” says Katie. “I’m Incredibly humbled to have been awarded Vancouver Magazine’s Bartender of the Year for 2020. Throughout my career, I’ve followed so many of these Bartenders of the Year and have idolized and admired them for all of their amazing hard work and beautiful bar programs. My heart is exploding right now. Thank you to all the Vancouver Magazine judges!”

Congratulations to Vancouver Magazine’s other winners – Trans Am for Bar of the Year, Robert Stemalchuk for Best Sommelier of the Year, and House of Funk for Brewery of the Year. We look forward to seeing everyone at the 31st Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards in May.
