MojoPages has announced the top bars in cities around the United States for the Best Bar category.

Each week, the Yellow Pages website concludes a contest for a specific business category, with a total of 52 categories in all. MojoPages allows people to search and vote for businesses in their city, giving each business a ranking within their category.

While users have one year to vote for their favorite business, competition tends to ramp up during the final weeks.

On December 31st, the final votes were cast for Best Bar, with nominations coming from cities such as San Diego, Los Angeles, Detroit, and Chicago. The votes have been cast and the winners have been announced.

Hansens was voted the Best San Diego Bar. In Los Angeles, Tiki Ti won while Detroit’s winner was Bookies Bar & Grill. Chicago’s winner was Lockdown Bar & Grill and Philadelphia’s Best Bar was the Vesuvio Restaurant & Bar. Orlando’s winner was Harp and Celt Restaurant and Irish Pub.

The votes and subsequent rankings are provided by users of the site and show just how popular each bar is. Those businesses ranking 2nd, 3rd, etc. are recognized as well.

Within each business’ profile, site users can find the number of people that voted and what percentage of the total votes went to that particular establishment.

The votes are finalized every Sunday and then announced to the masses. It’s a high honor for a business to get the MojoPages Award’s #1 spot as it means getting placed at the top of the search list for their category within their particular city.

There are various cities that participate in the MojoPages Awards, with awards being given out weekly.

During the week of January 1st through January 7th, users will have their final chance to vote within the Best Gym category. Any gym is eligible to be ranked, including those that are involved in personal fitness, training, martial arts, weight training, and much more. Ranks are already showing standings so that voters can help bring a favorite into the #1 spot before winners are officially announced on January 8th.
