Marcus was one of 10 outstanding Greater Sudbury entrepreneurs and companies recognized by the Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce at its 25th annual Bell Business Excellence Awards gala on Thursday.

The business community gathered to a capacity audience of around 400 to celebrate the finalists and winners.

The Alibi Room on Durham Street describes itself as “a modern, upscale and sophisticated take on a Prohibition-era speakeasy. Join us in our elegant 1920s-inspired bar top to watch our bartenders do what they do best: mix exquisite cocktails before your very eyes.”

It offers more than 90 unique bourbons, Canadian and American whiskeys and scotches, leather sofas for conversation with a “fantastic selection of local Ontario craft beers, wine and a tapas menu to share.”

It also features an open mic (Wednesday), live DJ lounge set coupled with a cocktail night (Thursday) and live bands every Friday and Saturday with an industry night jam session on Sunday.

For the past 25 years, the Chamber has hosted its Bell Business Excellence Awards as an opportunity not only to recognize the contributions of business owners in the region, but to learn from and about them.

From young entrepreneurs operating from home to established owners of international companies, the Bell Business Excellence Awards recognize the people “who form the backbone of our community, and the family, friends and experiences that keep them going.” .
