Best of Chicago Style’s Bar Fight Club in Photos

By Neat Pour Staff |

On Monday (5.07), the hospitality world descended upon Chicago for the James Beard Awards and then headed to Chicago Style‘s opening event, Bar Fight Club. Teams from six different bars created one-night only pop-up of their home venue attempting to one up each other. In the end, Oakland’s Starline Social Club took home the Judge’s Prize and Seattle’s Navy Strength was awarded the People’s Prize. (There were also plenty of Beards floating around the room.) In case you missed the excitement, check out our photo recap after the jump.
