Back-to-back wins prove Canadians love Shark Club
GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB, March 27 /CNW/ - Shark Club is proud to announce that
it has been named the Best Sports Bar in Canada for the second year in a row.
Shark Club came out on top in an online poll, held by Rogers Sportsnet, which
allowed viewers from across the country to vote for their favourite watering
holes. Shark Club was selected from competing sports bars from coast to coast,
and garnered a record number of votes to be named Canada's Best.
In claiming the title, Shark Club beat out four other finalists, with its
winning entry from Grande Prairie, Alberta. Shark Club is the only sports bar
to win the contest twice, and is particularly pleased with having won
consecutively. The 2008 challenge marked the fourth year of the Canada's Best
Sports Bar competition.
"We are absolutely thrilled and honoured to once again be named Canada's
Best Sports Bar," said Cory Domenichelli, General Manager of Shark Club Grande
Prairie. "Shark Club is committed to the providing our guests with everything
to make the game great and we are delighted Canadians are responding to our
efforts. This repeat win speaks to the dedication of our team and loyalty of
our guests. We would like to thank our valued fans in Grande Prairie as well
as across the country."
Bars entering the Sportsnet competition are required to submit a video
highlighting their strong points. Shark Club's video, a take on a NFL-type
film, resonated with sport enthusiasts across Canada.
Shark Club, one of Canada's premier sports bar & grills, opened its first
establishment in 1993. Now with seven locations, Shark Club offers patrons a
place to enjoy the game or dinner and drinks in Vancouver, Langley, Victoria,
Quesnel, Lethbridge, Saskatoon and Grande Prairie. Shark Club will be opening
its eighth location in Edmonton this spring.
