Local Hopatcong Lake residents love their Bars, but drinking is almost the last reason based upon the comments. Read on to gain a better understanding of what drives the Voting behind the Battle of the Bars 2017.


This second community event driven my Hopatcong Lake Regional News this year was again designed to raise money for Local Charity, and to help publicize and enhance our local businesses. The contest ran from May 1 – 31 as we sought to support the Dylan Flinchum "Rock On!" Foundation and crown the winner as the Best Bar in our Region 2017.

What Drove the Voting:
