Having been recognized for its culinary repertoire since appearing on the local gastronomic scene in 2000, Senso is adding in new flavour to the Club Street bar scene with The S bar.
The 30-seater bar immortalizes the crucial period in Italy that gave way to the La Dolce Vita era, “the sweet life”, between the 1950s to 1960s – a space created for the folks in the current 21st century to witness and pay homage to the strong tradition of Italian society.
Capturing the timeless glamour of Italy, The S bar preserves the personalities that rendered the fifties a period of great charm by using the nostalgic monochrome palette across the space. Walls adorned in fine Ostrich upholstery with antique black mirrors ostensibly evoke one’s wistful affection for the period of the past. Coupled with a lively mix of vibrant red sofas, the entire bar portrays the diametric contrast between the old rural way of life and the new modernising Italy during the period.
Guests can relish the taste of the classic or handcrafted cocktails to artisanal spirits. Available in the menu are meticulously crafted cocktails inspired by the walks of life in Italy. The classic Aperol Spritz, with its Aperol and Prosecco over ice and a splash of Club Soda in perfect proportions, is an essential Italian ritual for warm Summer afternoons. Negroni is another classic with Campari as its base where the aperitif’s bitter yet fruity characteristic is mixed well with Gin and Martini Rosso. Romantico, on the other hand, is an exceptional adulteration to the pristine smooth Belvedere Vodka mixed with Lime Cordial, Peach purée and Cranberry juice offering a calming sensation amidst vague sweetness in every sip with its Thyme finish.
Accompanied by gourmet bar bites, guests can expect a tease of taste buds with The S bar’s La Plachetta Platter lining up delectable cold cuts such as Salami, Mortadella and Bresaola with mature Cheeses from Fontina and Taleggio to Truffled Robiola among others. Fresh Oysters of Normandy are also available to tingle your palette for more wines and cocktails. Where most wine lovers agree that the vocabulary of oyster flavours overlaps with that of wine: “crisp,” “buttery,” and “flinty”, they can find both fine wines and fine oysters at one single place.

DFS Group, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, has opened a spectacular new wines and spirits flagship duplex store – the first of its kind in the world – at Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 3 .
At 11,400 square feet across two floors, the store is DFS Group’s largest single retail space for wines, spirits and tobacco. The opening of the store marks a milestone in DFS’ leadership and innovation in retail, and the realization of a new vision for retail at Changi Airport.
Designed by Masamichi Katayama, the award-winning interior designer and founder of design firm Wonderwall, the store showcases the luxury retailer’s full assortment of wines, spirits and tobacco in a visually dramatic store environment and façade inspired by flowing water and undulating shapes. Within the store, warm and modern design elements accentuated by a double-height atrium measuring over eight meters high provides an inviting shopping and tasting environment for travellers.
Amongst the store’s most innovative features are expanded common areas designed especially for lifestyle and cultural experiences. This includes a Raffles Long Bar – in collaboration with one of Singapore’s most historical landmarks, the Raffles Hotel - the ground-floor atrium tasting bars and a private lounge. The Long Bar will serve its famed cocktail invention, the original Singapore Sling. These common areas also provide space for guided tastings and a monthly program of exciting and interactive activities, featuring master classes for cocktail mixology, bartending and hosting at home.
In the new duplex store, DFS also introduces Changi’s first branded boutiques for wines and spirits, situated on the second floor. Nine brands – Absolut, Dom Pérignon, Glenfiddich, Hendrick’s, Hennessy, Johnnie Walker, The Macallan, Martell, and Penfolds – will showcase their heritage and their finest products within individually-designed boutiques, from the travel trunk-inspired Johnnie Walker House to the Glenfiddich boutique’s cellar and cask design. The store will also host visits from master distillers, blenders and brand ambassadors throughout the year, and unveil worldwide product launches for these nine brands.
The latest, salubrious addition to the Craig Road stretch is PerBacco — an elegant Italian wine bar and restaurant helmed by chef-owner Marco Violano. In Italian, the word ‘PerBacco’ refers to Bacchus, the god of wine and good times and is also used as an expression of pleasure and surprise. It is, indeed, an apt name for an establishment that prides itself on offering an authentic, top-notch Italian bar and dining experience.
The long, spacious bar overlooks the charming street and offers an al fresco feel thanks to high chairs and tables arranged right by its large windows. Here, amid brick-lined walls and dark wood furnishings, Chef Marco offers an impressive range of whiskeys, rums, unpasteurised beers, Italian wines and other spirits, and a list of six classic cocktails including the Manhattan, Negroni, and Spritz. The cocktails are always made to perfection with premium spirits such as Fords London Dry Gin, High West Rye Whiskey and Bottega Gold Prosecco.
To accompany the drinks is a list of premium Ciccheti (Italian bar bites to share) that Chef Marco imports from Italy and stores in a beautiful cold room that forms part of the restaurant’s décor. There are cold cuts like Parma ham aged between 12, 24 and 36 months; mild and sweet small-batch salamenostrano; pure pork salame from Felino, a small town located in the Baganza valley; unctuous salame Milano; and soppressata, a dry salami native to Tuscany and Liguria. These are cut using a beautiful, traditional Tamagnini ham hand slicer brought in from Parma, Italy.
On the menu are refined classics from the Mediterranean, including Chef Marco’s signature homemade spaghetti chitarre (guitar spaghetti, in reference to the guitar-like tool used to make the noodles) with scampi and clay pot fregola (pasta made from semolina, similar to Israeli couscous) with fresh lobster.
Chef Marco makes it a point to import the finest ingredients from around the world, including beef from Kobe, Japan and lamb from New Zealand, which he cooks to deft perfection in his mixed grill. He also brings in seasonal vegetable, fruit and seafood such as mussels and clams from Italy twice weekly.
Jamie’s Italian International and Hotel Properties Limited will be opening Jamie’s Italian Forum at Orchard in the third quarter of 2015.
Slightly smaller and more rustic than its sister establishment in VivoCity, the new Jamie Oliver restaurant will be a buzzing and stylish all-day space. Jamie’s Italian Forum at Orchard will open its doors at 10am every morning, so that you can pop in and read the papers or have a cozy chat over a freshly ground coffee and one of their Italian artisan pastries.
Jamie’s Italian Forum at Orchard will also be the first Jamie’s Italian in Singapore to serve fantastic thin-crust pizzas, on top of the much-loved bowls of freshly made pasta, mouth-watering grills and colourful salads. Done to order and served straight out of the oven, these pizza planks are perfect for sharing. Favourites include the mouth-watering Funghi with roasted mushrooms, smoked mozzarella, charred onion & thyme and the fiery Italian Hot, topped with artisanal salami, spicy meatballs, jalapeño chillies & buffalo mozzarella.
Whether you're looking for a quick catch up over a great cocktail or want to settle in for the night with a bottle of wine and some tasty nibbles, the bar has it covered. Offering knowledge without pretension and a fantastic list of wines, beers, spirits and cocktails, the friendly and expert staff will be able to advise and assist. A great place to unwind after a hard day at work or have a night out with your friends, the drinks will taste even better with "Aperitivo Hour", every Monday to Friday from 3 to 7pm.
Jamie’s Italian Forum at Orchard will thus evolve throughout the day - a place where you can drop by for a quick lunch, have an early evening meal before a movie or spend a Saturday night with a loved one after a day of shopping. But whatever the occasion and time, it will always be a great place to meet, socialise, eat and drink.
The legendary steakhouse, Morton’s, has unveiled a refreshed and contemporary new look following a 3 month renovation.
16 years since the restaurant first opened its doors in Singapore, the time-honoured main dining room, three private dining rooms and Bar 12.21, have all been transformed to reveal a fresh, bright and contemporary space, which exudes sophistication.
The restaurant façade now features French windows which offer an inviting glimpse of the revamp through Bar 12.21 and on to the main dining room beyond. With its lighted bottle display and contemporary chandelier light feature, the chic bar makes an ideal place to rendezvous for aperitifs of signature MORtinis or sample a selection of over 60 whiskies, bourbon and premium spirits.
Over in the main dining room, the use of crisp white paint on the walls is elegantly contrasted against the use of dark wood accents seen in the cornices, window frames and the screen panel features. This is offset by the accents of warm colour tones in the vaulted ceilings; gold in the main dining room and pale blue in the private dining rooms, as well as the use of various textures throughout, such as the brickwork effect stone tiles which frames the showcase kitchen. With a distinct Art Deco feel to the overall design, the restaurant now benefits from a real sense of space - the accumulative result of the removal of the partition between Bar 12.21 and the main dining room; the new wall-to-wall windows that stretch the length of the main dining room; the creative use of mirrors and clean contrasting colour palate, all beneath the warm glow of the bright sparkling chandeliers.
The three private dining rooms, each space unique, follow the clean and contemporary look, and feature distinct pale-blue vaulted ceiling with a cloud mural. New cutlery and glassware completes the overall redesign, not to mention the cherished pig-shaped tabletop oil lamps which have been lovingly restored, and now utilise eco-friendly tealight effect lights.
Oenophiles are sure to delight with the introduction of 52 wine lockers, where you can keep bottles of their favourite vintages, or alternatively, choose from the extensive wine list - many of the bottles which now grace the new showcase wine wall.
