PARKROYAL on Beach Road's Club 5 transforms into a modern destination bar - the new 'IT' social place to hit for craft cocktails, delectable bar nibbles and great music.
Explore past and present cultures through a selection of craft cocktails inspired by the diverse history of the neighbourhood gem, Kampong Glam. Fully refurbished with a new sleek interior, Club 5 will also serve up delicious bar nibbles, which are modern interpretation of classic heritage fare that takes inspiration from the rich flavours and spices of the Southeast Asian region.
Club 5's head bartender, Jun Han brings his expertise and love of putting a local spin to classic cocktails to the newly transformed destination bar, Club 5. This dynamic individual has over five years of experience in F&B, specialising in bartending. Armed with an insatiable appetite for learning, his knowledge of spirits, cocktails and avant-garde techniques – including his own rendition of spiced Rum and infused Tequila – is impressive. He relishes the opportunity to showcase a cocktail programme that proudly embraces the culturally rich areas of Beach Road, Kampong Glam and Bugis that surround PARKROYAL on Beach Road.
“Creating the perfect cocktail is not just about mixing spirits. It is a journey filled with curiosity behind the story of what makes each drink one of a kind. As a bartender, the best feeling is seeing someone’s face light up when they try something new or when they have finally found the drink” shared Jun Han. “I love experimenting and incoporating local flavours as it adds a touch of home and gives deep meaning to each drink. Ultimately however, the flavours have to be balanced to give an all-round delightful experience.”
Jun Han was the 2019 Campari Bartender Champion, representing Singapore in Milan, where he emerged among the Top 14. Other achievements include second place at the 2019 Remy Martin Barrel-Aged Competition, Top 8 at the 2019 Black Cow Vodka Competition and Top 8 at the Bartender Society Saint James SEA Competition.
F&B newcomer The JOMO Group will launch their first neighbourhood bar + kitchen + bottle shop ‘JOMO’ in the bustling Holland Village locale in early January 2021. This venue will be the first of five that The JOMO Group plans to open around neighbourhoods in Singapore, with the view of offering high-quality cuisine coupled with beverages at a very accessible price point.
JOMO aims to become a local hot spot for guests looking for a wide selection of drinks and dishes that are family-friendly and affordable. The concept will be that of a warm, casual, friendly neighborhood hangout with a minimalist Bar, Kitchen & Bottle Shop vibe, and a modern yet timeless ambience directed towards a simpler lifestyle.
To be open 7-days a week, JOMO will offer dine in and take-away options. The family-friendly menu will have a wide selection of dishes including aged Aussie angus burgers, deep-fried pork belly, and homemade pies all from master butchers Sidecar Handcrafted. Other highlights include a 1.2 kg meat platter with fries and coleslaw, enough for 5 people and priced at only $88 nett.
Family BBQs powered by Sidecar Handcrafted will be held every Sunday with two seating options available, 11am to 2pm and 3pm to 6pm. Orders will be taken dim-sum style, and served at tables for sharing with free-flow options of Aperol Spritz and all beer on draft for a bargain $42 nett. JOMO is bringing to Singapore chicken-salted fries that are hugely popular in Australia, a must-try on their menu.
JOMO will have over 250 wines and spirits, including 40 gins by the bottle, and 50 wines at $50 nett per bottle. JOMO’s super-dry low-carb lager beer will be available together with four beers on tap at $8 nett per pint ($6 nett during Happy Hour). Take-away 2.5L beer pouches will also be offered at $28 nett, and there will be no surcharge for take-away or in-house dining.
“Our vision was to create a more stylish F&B experience than what is typically found around neighbourhoods, yet maintain that casual vibe and sense of community we all enjoy. We also wanted to stay away from the old and stuffy and bring back the vibrant, convivial feeling to a place where you know you will have top-quality food and drinks at a fantastic place to unwind, “said Group General Manager, Steve Yallop.
“To ensure the safety of our guests, we will be working with 'Equal Strategy' to use their latest technology 'Eco Pure Room', a patented and safe, NEA approved COVID-19 killing airborne sanitiser currently used in hospitals and leading global hospitality brands,” he added.
JOMO will feature a luscious alfresco area sweeping around the building, a full retail shop experience on the ground floor and a stylish, yet minimalistic restaurant and bar on the second floor.
JOMO – Holland Village is located in a three-storey hidden gem that has distinctive window-panes and a pointed roof at the end of Lorong Mambong Road in Holland Village.
Happy Hour is from 3pm to 6pm, Monday to Saturday.

Formerly part of The Proof Collective, Junior The Pocket Bar is now independently owned by proprietor, Joe Alessandroni, with Hazel Long helming the bar and Peter Chua remaining Bartender in Residence and also becoming an equity partner in the business, Junior Productions Pte Ltd.

A locally rooted, modern bar, Junior The Pocket Bar works with local artists and craft producers to showcase the flavours and traditions of the world’s great drinking cultures, reinterpreted for a modern cocktail bar. Junior will retain its rotating concept while establishing a core Junior identify that will remain the backbone of the bar programme.
The updated menu sees the introduction of Junior’s Homebrew & Highballs, which will remain a staple on the menu. These low concept, flavour driven house fermented beverages can be with alcohol (make it boozy) or without (keep it boujee). Flavours include Thai Ginger Beer with mixed ginger, curry spice and sour tamarind (can be spiked with dark rum), and Lacto Lime Soda with salt-cured citrus, lime leaf and soda (with the option to add tequila). Junior’s core menu also includes Eat The Rich, a selection of culinary cocktails paired with a decadent small bite, such as the Deviled Egg Martini with Hendrick’s Orbium Gin, botanical infused white port, East India sherry, and grapefruit bitters, served with a Caviar Deviled Egg. A small selection of natural wines, craft beers, and fine spirits rounds out the drink offerings.
Junior’s current concept, Washi is inspired by the bars in Shinjuku’s Golden Gai with a funky, playful twist on the 1980’s Bubble Era Tokyo. The bar’s fifth volume sees origami cocktails such as the Crane, with kyoho grape, Sakura vermouth, cognac and lemon, the Rabbit with miso roast carrot aqavit, honey, lemon and Junmai sake, and the Panda with genmaicha vermouth, sparkling sake botanic vodka and pickled bamboo shoot.
The bar snacks menu has a couple of items that take a nod to the Washi theme with the Tako Wasabi marinated octopus calamansi, wasabi and the Roast Pumpkin Hummus with yellow miso, furikake vegetable crudites. Signature Sandos include the Mala Hot Chicken fried sandwich with Szechuan sauce, purple cabbage slaw and pickled pineapple and the French Dip BÃ nh MÃ with slow-cooked beef shank, onion jam, fresh herbs and spiced beef jus.

Wallet-friendly wines, whiskeys on promo, bar bites and mains, Hair of the Dog has the simple plain goodness that leaves you going for more.
Singapore Distillery offers a range of unique gins which are distilled locally – 6 for now. So everyone will be able to find the right gin for them. It took the Singapore Distillery team many batches, over 100 test batches to get each gin to where they want them.
All of Singapore Distillery's gins are diluted to 42.5% ABV, or alcoholic strength. In their experience and the findings of many distillers worldwide, this brings out the best flavour of botanicals without having a sort of raw alcohol taste which is the case when the alcohol strength is higher. Many Gin connoisseurs say that gins with less than 42.5% ABV don’t have the flavour to stand up to tonic water or other ingredients in cocktails.

Located at Alexandra Terrace, Brass Lion Distillery is Singapore’s first standalone micro-distillery specialising in producing high-quality small-batch craft spirits. In addition to being a distillery, it is also home to a tasting room, retail store and herb garden.
The brand debuts with the Brass Lion Gin — a tropical and distinctly Singaporean gin that evokes the island’s sense of place. This New World-style gin draws inspiration from the region’s centuries-old spice trade, which brought a plethora of Asian herbs and spices – together with indigenous varieties – to the island.
Founder Jamie's first foray into the world of spirits started with the opening of the legendary Chupitos Shots Bar in Clarke Quay, followed by The Beast Southern Kitchen & Bourbon Bar. A love of gin and experimentation, combined with the lack of local Singaporean spirits, led her on a journey to master the art and science of distillation under Master Distillers all over the world.
Embark on a tour of Brass Lion Distillery's entire space where you'll learn about the distilling process, how Brass Lion came about and the inception of the Singapore Dry Gin. Please visit this link to sign up for the tour.
