OXFORD, Miss., Jan. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Oxford Publishing Inc., publisher

Top 100 bars and clubs in the United States, which will be honored with a
special party at the Nightclub & Bar/Beverage Retailer Beverage and Food

advertising effectiveness, promotional expertise, uniqueness to market,
food and beverage programs and much more. This list is NOT a ranking of

mixture of clubs, neighborhood bars, sports bars, family-oriented venues
and more that for one reason or another deserve notice.
