It was the Oscars of Drink Making on Saturday night, as 11th annual Spirited Awards took place in New Orleans. Part of the cocktail industry's "Tales of the Cocktail" festival—where all your favorite bartenders and cocktail devotees were getting wild this weekend—the awards honor the world's best in shaking and stirring. NYC dominated the American categories, with area cocktail dens and restaurants bringing home four crystal plates.

The West Village's negroni haven Dante (which recently added a summer pop-up in Little Italy) was dubbed Best American Restaurant Bar.

The NoMad Bar—not to be confused with The Elephant Bar at The NoMad—walked away with Best American Bar Team. (Unfortunately, you'll have to wait until August 1st to enjoy their fancy large-format cocktails, as the space is closed for maintenance in July.)

PDT is no stranger to the Spirited Awards, having been named World's Best Cocktail Bar in 2009. Jeff Bell, who's been at the East Village speakeasy since 2010, was named American Bartender of the Year for 2017.

Lastly: Blacktail, the Cuban-themed project from the Dead Rabbit duo of Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon, took home honors as the Best New American Cocktail Bar.
