Windsor Business to be presented Provincial Award:
ARIIUS, locally owned and operated by Kash Hasan & Patrick Kim inside Caesars Windsor,
will receive the Provincial Best Bar None Award at the Annual Gala Evening of Excellence to be hosted at Essex Golf and Country Club, Monday, October 15th.
Last year Kash & Patrick accepted the designation from The Best Bar None (BBN) Ontario program being the first Windsor business to join the ranks of world-class organizations like the Rogers Centre in Toronto, to receive the BBN designation. This coming month ARIIUS will now receive the AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE from the BBN for operating at the highest standards.
ARIIUS Nightclub & UltraLounge is located in Caesars Windsor Casino and achieved the BBN Accreditation in 2017. The BBN Ontario has been operating in its sixth year in the Toronto downtown core and in its fifth year in Ottawa’s By Ward Market. ARIIUS Nightclub & UltraLounge @ CAESARS was the first licensee establishment to receive the accreditation outside these two cities. The BBN is completely voluntary and industry-led by the Ontario Restaurant Hotel Motel Association (ORHMA). It recognizes excellence in operational standards and service. Best Bar None Ontario is an industry-led international accreditation and awards program that rewards excellence amongst responsible liquor sales licensees and encourages everyone to improve their operations.
The BBN accreditation demonstrates to your customers, your neighbors, and members of the public that your venue has the highest standards of service and has implemented industry best practices so that your business stands above the crowd as a safe, well-run licensed establishment. Best Bar None Ontario was offered for the first time in Ontario in 2012/2013 offering accreditation for licensees in the downtown Toronto core and to the Ottawa By Ward Market, and until last year, ARIIUS Nightclub & Ultralounge @ CAESARS initially brought this world-class accreditation to Windsor in 2017, but has followed in 2018 with the presentation of the provincial AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE.
Charlie Kobryn, Board Member Windsor OHMRA, announced earlier this week, "Your team and yourself should be proud of this accomplishment to be operating your Club to the highest of standards. ARIIUS will receive Best Bar None Award of Excellence at our annual Gala Evening of Excellence."
The BBN program is quite unique. It is an international industry-led program for licensed establishments. This is about industry driving industry compliance through collaboration with various stakeholders including the AGCO, LCBO and MADD. BBN Ontario accredited businesses such as ARIIUS maintain the highest standards for their customers and staff, manage the sale and service of alcohol responsibly, and have good relationships with the community and hospitality industry partners.
Kash H, President of ARIIUS International Group & ARIIUS Nightclub @ Caesars, states, "Back in 2017 is was truly an honour that we, as a local Windsor Business, met the strict and rigorous criteria that is demanded by all BBN members and brought Windsor to the forefront on a provincial stage as far as excellence in service in the hospitality industry. Now in 2018 we are honoured to have been recognized for all our hard work and dedication to providing a world-class experience right here in Windsor. We are excited to receive the 2018 AWARD OF EXCELLENCE."
Hasan added, "This is also a great opportunity for us to announce our commitment to our city as long time local business owners with the recent purchase of a long standing vacant building in the downtown core at 576 Ouellette Avenue. Our team has been working around the clock in re-concepting the entire 24,000 square foot building that sprawls 3 storeys. Our vision is to bring downtown a true entertainment complex. The building will have three fully operational floors with Pub, Restaurant, and Event Space all conveniently spread out throughout the sprawling 24,000 sq ft. The upper floor will house Tequila Bob's, a pub style must visit tourist destination catering to special celebrations like birthdays and other celebratory moments with friends. The main floor with be a new concept by the name of The Chelsea. The Chelsea will be upper scale restaurant and pub with a focus on fresh and fun shared plates with a key focus on a vegetarian flare. We will have one of the cities largest selection of tap beers and a fun energetic environment for friends and family to meet for food & beverages. The Chelsea will also showcase a private 4000 square foot party room available for private personal and corporate events. For bookings please call 519.980.4002. Our new venues will look to be BBN accredited venues.
"Now more then ever is a program like the BBN critical to our city center. We are confident that with our investment in the core this will spark and encourage more entrepreneurs to bring their visions downtown. Just across the river in Detroit we can see what can be done when everyone works together to bring new exciting ideas to the city center. We encourage the Mayor's efforts to add more patrol to our streets to help cut out the nonsense that has riddled our downtown core. We all must work together to eliminate and eradicate events of recent months. If you see it, report it. We have launched our own hashtag to encourage everyone to their share to make your downtown great again - please #mydowntown."
