UKHospitality has unveiled the shortlisted nominees for the 2018 Dusk ‘til Dawn Late Night Awards.

The winners will be announced at the gala Dusk ‘til Dawn event at Café de Paris, following the Bar and Nightclub Conference on 8 October.

UKHospitality Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said: “The variety and sheer volume of nominations this year has been fantastic and the job of whittling them down to 53 shortlisted nominees has been tough. The diversity on show this year is a tribute to the vibrancy and vitality of the UK’s late-night sector and we are very pleased to shortlist the most dynamic companies at the cutting-edge of late-night hospitality.

“A thriving late-night sector makes a huge difference to a town and city, providing not only an economic boost, but also acting as a very valuable social and cultural asset. Our nightclubs are world-renowned and the annual Dusk ‘til Dawn is all about celebrating this brilliant sector.

“I look forward to this year’s ceremony and crowning the winners at what will no doubt be a fantastic evening celebrating this valuable and exciting aspect of the UK’s hospitality.”
