The judges include influencers and luminaries such as Sarah Douglas (Editor-in-Chief, Wallpaper*), Didier Souillat (CEO, Time Out Market), Guy Heywood (COO, Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas) and many, many more.

The Awards are followed by over 45,000 of the most prominent architects, hotel, restaurant & bar operators and media.

Connecting People

We offer an annual program of unique opportunities to network and connect with the most influential restaurant, bar and hotel designers and their clients in the UK and globally.

As part of this program we organise a series of Restaurant & Bar Design Talks throughout the year. Each event is held at an innovative food and beverage space and are hosted by both the venue’s designer and their client. The events are attended by the region’s most influential designers, hospitality operators and our partners/sponsors.

The Awards

The highlight of our year is the awards ceremony. Each event is individually themed and is a unique celebration of the amazing work entered throughout the year.

Leading industry professionals award prizes for the best work as voted by our panel of internationally recognised judges. This year we are holding a virtual awards ceremony on our website on 15th October 2020, 14:00 UK time Interact with us via Instagram @restaurantandbardesignawards #RBDA #RBDA2020.
