Bringing you a one-of-a-kind experience, b bar is a swanky hideout at habitat by honestbee and is home to an exclusive spirits and cocktail bar that presents New Age Classics, its first of many seasonal themes. Inspired by gastronomy and culinary techniques, ingredients are sourced from around the world, available for purchase at habitat by honestbee.
Resident bar manager Anton Gornev uses modern techniques to recreate classic drinks infused with local and Asian flavours. Originally from St Petersburg, Russia, Anton brings with him a wealth of international experience having competed in competitions across the globe. Employing gastronomy techniques such as fat-washing, sous vide infusion, milk clarification, and even using a bee smoker, Anton’s inventive style adds a layer of depth to b bar’s cocktails. Apart from a change of menus, b bar’s interior decor and uniforms will be updated accordingly to bring a new take to the experience.
Sharing his inspiration behind the current theme of New Age Classics, “As a bar that’s just opening, I wanted to shine a spotlight on classic cocktails to showcase how bartending began and evolved, but with my own modern take. habitat by honestbee is an exciting playground of exotic flavours and fresh ingredients that have inspired me to take on new concoctions.”
b bar is hidden beyond the Wine and Spirits alley of habitat by honestbee, serving as an element of surprise behind the illusive mirror. Colours and geometries give the shelving its own character with brass and stone adding to the richness of textural qualities of the space.
Those looking to ease back this month will be able to indulge in b bar’s low ABV (alcohol by volume) cocktails which pack more flavour than potency. To provide guests with more options, b bar’s menu is categorised into low to high ABV cocktails to suit any occasion. Not to be missed at b bar is Anton’s signature cocktail, Bienvenido, which is a Top 3 finalist in the 2018/2019 Bacardi Legacy competition. Also look out for Milky Whey, a classic milk punch cocktail made with a secret natural cola recipe comprising 15 ingredients, including dried lavender and coriander. More than your average mocktail, b bar’s non-alcoholic cocktails are complex and nuanced. Made with habitat by honestbee’s cold brew coffee from Hinoki and homemade kaya from Lazy Loaf, the Cold Brew Colada is a spin on the traditional Pina Colada.
The Lounge Bar, located on the second floor of the beautifully restored shophouse and tucked away on 76 Duxton Road, is curating Singapore’s finest Savoie inspired cocktails. With access to over 40 herbs flown directly from the stunning French Alps, The Lounge Bar is the Lion City’s first drinking establishment offering such a dedicated selection and bringing a little slice of the alps to Asia.
“It is a great privilege to showcase the work of artisans and small batch producers as their motives are different. There are some wonderful examples of generational heritage among the selection at The Lounge Bar. This makes for a great experience for our guests, especially when we share their story, their inspiration – it always adds a little extra magic to each cocktail! – Anant Tyagi, Owner The Lounge Bar
In a league of its own, The Lounge Bar cocktail program of herb-inspired concoctions is a delicious, if somewhat potent, ode to Chef Gillon’s hand-selected herbs.
Here's a couple of the bar's cocktail creations:
Sariette – Imagine an aromatic blast of rosemary, thyme the moment you pick up this Islay led cocktail. A generous dram of Smokehead whirled around with Montenegro, Branca Mentha, Campari, Carpano Antica formula and Angostura Bitters is sublime.
Hyssop – if you’re craving a slightly bitter pour, look no further. The carefully calculated formula of this minty herb with high tannins with infused rum, St Germaine liqueor, Peychaud Bitters, pillow soft egg-white, a dash of lime juice and simple syrup – simply addictive.
Agastache – this thoughtful creation is a complex mix of this licorice, almost star anise flavoured herb, with beautifully distilled pisco. Add the slightly smokey Pierde Almas Mezcal, Aperol, whisked egg white, lemon juice, grapefruit bitters, sage syrup and you’ll reach new highs!
Visit the bar for more unique cocktails to try. In addition to the bar’s signature selection, the classics have been embraced and elevated to greater heights with the help of craft spirits.
The Lounge Bar is an intimate, elegant and warm den inviting guests to find their favourite spot and settle down with a luscious cocktail. Be it a girls night out, a romantic couples evening or whisky with the lads, the modern design suits all occasion and parties. Two chesterfield sofas have been placed for slightly larger groups while a handful of low tables is perfect for more private drinks. High stools at the bar gives guests direct view of mixologists muddling, blending and shaking away as the pour perfectly executed cocktails.
An all-day dining venue situated at the crossroads of Telok Ayer district, 51 Soho lends itself perfectly as a space for both work and play. Their offerings evolve through the hours, and reflects their human-oriented approach.
In short, 51 Soho encompasses all that is needed in a day for work and play.
An airy light-filled space framed by alfresco-facing ceiling-high windows facing the hustle and bustle of 51 Soho's central downtown location; a stylish full-fledged coffee and cocktail bar full of character in both its form and beverages; thoughtful menus that progress to support hour-to-hour culinary requirements; and that modern-day essential, complimentary high-speed wifi – these are the foundation for the new heart of this vibrant neighbourhood.
51 Soho is designed to foster a social experience. The goal is that you feel that you’ve found the place and the people that you’ve always been searching for.
Natural materials such as brick and wood dominate the interiors vis-à-vis the walls, the bar and the furniture; black steel panels add an urban edge. Up-close observation reveals a delightful and highly Instagram-mable surprise: the patterns alternate between geometrical inspirations to charming cut-outs of birds, teapots and cups.
At 51 Soho, whether you need a quick lunch alone or to entertain a 10-person group of drinkers, the space and staff are quick to respond to your needs.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and all the hours in between: the menus of 51 Soho seamlessly meets the ever-changing culinary requirements you might have in a day.
Breakfast options are easy and delicious. The Breakfast Overnight Oats ($9.90) rich with berries and other seasonal fruits or a fresh-baked Croissant with Ham and Cheese and Scrambled Eggs ($10.90) satisfy a lighter appetite whilst those who believe in eating like an emperor in the mornings would be delighted with options like the Big Breakfast, ($14.90) a platter which includes sausage, hash browns, pan-fried tomatoes, sunny side-ups and an English muffin with marmalade.
Lunch at 51 Soho is a study in how to elevate the one-bowl meals. Fulfilling the community’s needs for speed, taste and wholesome nutrition, a vast plethora of carefully prepared options – protein and carbohydrate, toppings and add-ons – allow for creative customisation of the meal according to individual constitution and needs.
51 Soho’s dinner menu is a development of the motif tying the breakfast and lunch menus – the familiar is elevated with premium ingredients, thoughtful preparation, and a witty, tongue-in-cheek hat-tip to local culinary preferences.
The golden sunlight that gilds the custom-built bar running almost the entire length of the space brings out yet another fact of 51 Soho. Drinkers will find their attention especially commandeered by the cocktails.
A beautiful list of classics, with a twist, is available but it’s the five 51 Soho Specials that will linger in the memory. Original recipes one and all, the Specials are nonetheless rooted in meticulous research and development. Resounding especially strongly was the history of punch drinks and shooters (or shots) – their celebratory nature; the flexibility of the basic recipes; and the stories – apocryphal or not! – that surround them. In fact, both Difford’s and Vice notes that historically, punch was the drink of choice for high society.
The 51 Soho Specials are a contemporary materialisation of cross-cultural references. Chinese rice wine, plum wine and bamboo wine form the base of the Specials. These, each with its own centuries-old heritage and character, have long since been lost to the serious drinker.
Heels tap against the tarmac, the purring of the engine grows louder, newspaper rustles as someone turns the page. Fasten your seatbelts and prepare to fly across the Atlantic in style courtesy of Idlewild, Singapore’s newest, most exciting cocktail bar.
Idlewild, the original name of the John F. Kennedy International Airport, was at the heart of the action when the first commercial transatlantic flight took to the skies in the 1940s, heralding three decades of what we would come to know as the Golden Age of air travel as travellers set off to exotic lands in search of untold stories and new adventures.
Inspired by the decadence and romance of air travel’s resplendent years, Idlewild takes guests on a journey through the era’s greatest hits – popular travel destinations along the transatlantic route, music that defined that generation and the indulgence and luxury that underscored it all. Each element has been interpreted for a modern age from a stellar cocktail programme featuring modern craft spirits infused with influences from around the globe, to a live band playing postmodern tunes. Expect an eclectic mix of music from the late 1940s to 1960s from pulsing, rhythmic funk and soul to booming big band swing sounds and haunting, heart wrenching blues. Smooth, lilting jazz tunes take centre stage this month with London-born singer songwriter Janine Annice in town as the first lead singer at Idlewild accompanied by a four-piece house band.
Enter Idlewild through a salon style entrance which keeps arrivals discreet and adds to the intrigue and mystery of the space. Something glittering will catch the eye – a Cabinet of Curiosities lined with glistening mirrored tiles; inviting guests on an exploration of the world through over 50 rare and exotic spirits and a plethora of trinkets and drink paraphernalia curated from travels across the globe. Perfectly complementing the main holding of over 250 craft spirits and liqueurs.
The interior is separated into two distinct areas, the Parlour and the Main Room, both characterised by plush furnishing and vibrant accent pieces gently lit by the use of warm, old-world club style lighting that transitions throughout the day, adding a soft, dreamy glow. For something more private, choose one of the raised large bay window booths that provide a secluded spot for a romantic date. Upon departure, immortalise a night at Idlewild with a stop at the Ribbon Wall – a modern day message board – to leave a note or a signed coaster for a friend to discover on their next visit.
Their cocktail programme was inspired by 10 cities along the popular Transatlantic Route – Dublin, Rome, Lima, Lisbon, New York, Casablanca, London, Paris, Mexico City and Havana. 20 signature cocktails (from S$20++ each) are artfully created using innovative and modern techniques and include a variety of artisanal spirits often sourced from small batch distilleries in each location, and rare vintages. Each location is also represented with a tapas-style bar snack (from S$15++) including Atun Chifa, Duck Rillette and Avocado Fries that draw inspiration from respective native cuisines.
Award-winning cocktail bar inspired by the 1952 Ernest Hemingway novel about a Cuban fisherman and the biggest catch of his life; The Old Man is a Hemingway-themed bar in Singapore with a distinctly Asian touch.
An award-winning bar team, fans and drinking connoisseurs alike can gather and sip on inventive libations in memory of the brilliant writer and cocktail enthusiast.
Wanderlost Lounge offers bespoke non-alcoholic cocktails and a selection of lava rock grilled food options. 40 meters above ground, the rooftop lounge has a beautifully furnished interior and patrons can look forward to fantastic views of Tanjong Pagar.
It takes some determination and grit to locate Wanderlost Lounge. You can drop at 15 Enggor Street. You will arrive at this building called Realty Centre. To enter, go to the back of this building by crossing the grass patch to find the back entrance via Bernam Street. You’ll spot a car park entrance. Now, make your way up the slope (don't forget to say hello to the friendly uncle who's on bouncer duty) and you’ll find an elevator. Take the elevator up to 11th floor and then take 1 floor up the stairs to reach Wanderlost Lounge. So now that you have this information, go wander and get lost!

Throughout their menu, you will see a running theme of gentle nods to Tom Cruise movies. It's all about indulgence, desires, strength of character in uncertain times and having a little fun….
The Risky Business's mantra: “Every now and then say, “What the fxxk.” “What the fxxk” gives you freedom. Freedom brings opportunity. Opportunity makes your future.” Miles Dalby, Risky Business 1983.
Enjoy one of their signature cocktails (all named after movies starring Mr Cruise) at only $23+ each:
The Monarchy Cocktail Bar & Ultra Lounge at 56 / 58 Tras Street offer a long-awaited, permanent and spiritual home for the wildly popular Monarchy nights that were acclaimed for playing host to both Royalty and celebrities alike on the rooftop of OUE Bayfront. The Monarchy is the brainchild of nightlife veterans, Robbie Hoyes-Cock, the CEO & Founder of the world's most glamourous Formula 1 weekend after-parties The Podium Lounge; and Steve Yallop, former Executive Director of Pangaea at Marina Bay Sands, who have been organising star-studded high society club nights in Singapore since 2005.
Set in a heritage shophouse spread over 3,600 square feet in the heart of the CBD, this quintessentially British cocktail bar exudes understated luxury and bears a distinctly regal theme, celebrating the Royal Houses of Normandy to Lancaster and Tudors to the Windsors.
Helmed by General Manager Rob Scott, former Group Beverage Director of Burnt Ends, Meatsmith & Rogue Trader, The Monarchy offers a carefully curated menu of timeless cocktails through the ages, and will introduce a new cocktail list quarterly, enabling guests to take multiple journeys through the history of Great Britain's most popular tastes and tipples of the day.
The opening cocktail list “Cool Britannia” is named in celebration of the modern, outward-facing Britain of the 1990s and the period of increased pride in the giddy cultural fantasia of the United Kingdom – the name itself a pun on the title of one of Britain's most patriotic songs, ''Rule Brittania''.
In a tip of the hat to Britain’s constitutional monarchy, guests enter the premises through a front door that is identical to the iconic home of the British Prime Minister, 10 Downing Street.
On weekends and eve of public holidays from 10pm, as the night builds up and the lights go down, the music starts pulsing and The Monarchy’s dazzling ultra lounge space comes alive as the entire venue transforms into one club. A hidden door at the end of the 8 metre long cocktail bar swings open to reveal a dark and intimate boudoir lined with leather Chesterfields and dancing platforms, where guests can party with the best house music DJs and live celebrity acts.
The 7 VIP tables named after British icons: Sir Winston Churchill, Dame Helen Mirren, Audrey Heburn, Amy Winehouse, George Michael, John Lennon and Hugh Grant; provide a home-away-from-home for those who crave a more sophisticated and private, late-night experience.
The Monarchy has brought together what is possibly the best bar team in Singapore, bringing unprecedented experience from many of the island's most acclaimed venues: 28 HongKong St, Employees Only, 1880, Lulu's, Pangaea and The Cufflink Club to name a few.
The Royal Jesters look forward to entertaining you at The Monarchy soon. God Save The Queen!
Junior has released their latest concept, Pacifica, paying homage to authentic Tiki traditions and unrivalled tropical escapism. Pacifica encapsulates the enchantment of Polynesian culture through artisanal exotic spirits, fresh seasonal ingredients and high-quality décor.
“With Prohibition officially repealed, and recognizing that people hadn’t tasted a decent drink during the previous fourteen years of darkness, with the smell of Rhum always in my nostrils, I started to concoct some unusual, and at the time, exotic drinks”– Ernest Gantt (aka Tiki legend Don the Beachcomber).
Tiki is the manifestation of gracefully swaying palm trees, white-sand beaches and exotic visions of island cultured borrowed from tales told by American soldiers. These island dreams manifested themselves into some of the great themed bars of the 1920s and 1930s. The establishments exemplified the lure of the tropics providing a dramatic and inviting escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Pacifica’s cocktail menu is divided into four unique sections; Legends of Liquid Lore, Apertiki, Traditional Tipples of the Tropics and Progressive Potions of Pacifica.
Junior’s concepts reflect the creative spirit and personality of The Proof Collective and serve as a platform to showcase a diversity of curated artisanal spirits and delicious food through an intimate, authentic experience. As an art gallery would change exhibitions, Junior rotates and presents two original concepts each year. With only ten seats in a private space, Junior focuses on one core topic every six months.
Junior’s concepts take guests through a high-touch, ultra-personalized experience, where they have an opportunity to explore hard-to-find spirits, drink carefully crafted cocktails and enjoy food that matches the concept. Guests have the opportunity to interact closely with the Junior team and fellow guests in a cozy setting.
From the group that brought you Sum Yi Tai, Mona Lounge, and Eliza, Coterie Concepts launches the third character of their narrative, Chi Kinjo, a Modern Sushi Bar and Highball Den. Set in the memory of a time in Kyoto when chaos was the mandate and danger was foretold, Chi Kinjo is an intimate yet lively Sushi & Izakaya restaurant and basement bar where promises are made and secrets are kept.
The new Modern-Sushi Restaurant offers guests contemporary Japanese Cuisine with a carefully curated menu that showcases creativity, ingenuity and sophistication. Coterie Concepts Co-founder Tay Eu-Yen said: "We wanted to bring creative modern sushi and quality ingredients into a casual space. Chi Kinjo, with its informal setting, offers an alternative to fine dining without compromising on culinary standards."
Helmed by Chef Lamley Chua, who brings a lifetime of experience working in International and Michelin Star restaurants such as LP+Tetsu, divides the menu into five distinct sections; Starters, Maki, Aburi Nigiri, Hot Small Plates and Hot Big Plates. The menu challenges what guests already know about Japanese cuisine and pushes the boundaries between traditional and modern, eastern and western.
The Bushido code is a Japanese code of conduct that is embodied by samurai, and is a sacred set of virtues that Chef Lamley lives by. His craft is defined by tremendous respect for tradition and maintaining the integrity of ingredients. He elevates a time-old cuisine with contemporary flavours to suit the modern palate. The delicate balance of flavours showcases the complexity of each dish and his thoughtfulness. To honour the integrity of each ingredient, he only uses the highest quality of ingredients to derive the purest taste, which can only be achieved by exercising consciousness in the sourcing of these ingredients. By taking the time to understand the work that goes into quality produce, Chef Lamley ensures that nothing goes to waste.
All Coterie Concepts’ outlets are interconnected by a narrative, stay tuned for the next part of the story. In the meantime, you can read more about all their establishments here.
Freida draws inspiration from its namesake, who was warmhearted, generous and the very embodiment of hospitality – creating a home away from home, where guests could feel a sense of place and belonging no matter where how far they travelled. It is her spirit of warmth that permeates the restaurant with its four distinct spaces designed to serve every guests’ need.
Right at the heart of the restaurant is the Daybar – inspired by Berlin’s urban style, it is perfect for enjoying abendbrot, a casual evening meal, with a pint of ice-cold German beer on tap, or one of the many German liquors that line the shelves. The Pantry’s open kitchen counter provides an interactive experience with chefs; a cosy, intimate dinner awaits at the Dining Room and the enchanting, botanical-themed Frieda’s Garden sets the stage for a romantic evening.

Alluding to the state of emptiness, Almost Famous at Chijmes was conceived to be a space to provide clarity to the experience. Adding nothing to influence and taking nothing away to distract from the emphasis of the subjects within the space. They wanted to push the boundaries of what defines how a craft beer bar should be.
Conceptualised with minimalism in mind, Almost Famous was designed to be an environment devoid of unnecessary aesthetics. Every detail from the design of furniture, tableware, menu board, and even the coasters was selected with careful restraint, to achieve simplicity in form and function. A concept that was further enhanced by the choice of basic shapes and monochromatic palettes in the overall aesthetics of the interiors.
They wanted this objectivity to be translated into nothing short of a memorable experience with the emphasis on the people, the food and the beers.
Almost Famous offer a selection of 16 beers on tap from popular breweries locally and beyond. Their curation of beers aims to introduce a wider selection of session-able craft beers as a gateway for regular beer drinkers to appreciate specialty beers and the unique characteristics of beers from small-batch breweries. Complemented by a smaller selection of premium craft beers with more robust flavours, from rich stouts, hoppy IPAs to seasonal limited edition brews.
Their rotational taps include beers from some of these craft breweries:
Brewlander & Co. (Singapore)
Pasteur Street Brewing Company (Vietnam)
Young Master Brewery ć°çșć€é ć» (Hong Kong)
Pirate Life Brewing (Australia)
Stone & Wood Brewing Co. (Australia)

Ensconced within the ornate and luxurious interior of The Vagabond Club, Singapore’s preeminent luxury boutique hotel with 41 individualistic and elegantly appointed rooms and suites, the Whiskey Library offers over 1,000 bottles of thoughtfully curated rare and refined award-winning whiskies from around the world, and comes with a Membership Programme to beguile guests with a love of whiskey and give them access to the captivating vagabond experience.

Designed for what Garcha calls “a club for vagabonds seeking a unique and hidden experience”, the warm and beautifully appointed Whiskey Library hosts up to 75 guests who, while relaxing and enjoying their whiskies, will be entertained with bespoke experiences such as specially curated sung and told Jazz stories, intimate theatre, book readings, artist evenings, musical showcases, and even independent film premieres. Guests will also be able to enjoy delightful small bites prepared by the Chef de cuisine at The Vagabond Club.
In keeping with the theme of artistry and luxury, the vitrines housing the whiskey collection and other crafted white spirits were designed and hand-crafted by local woodsman Mr Ng – one of the few remaining craftsmen in Singapore who continues to create unique furniture pieces. Designed to enhance the decadent elements of the hotel surrounds, the armoires feature brass claw feet to complement the similarly brass Allahbuksh-designed Rhino reception desk.
Akin to the Allahbuksh family from Rajasthan who crafted the enchanting Banyan Trees at The Vagabond Club, Mr Ng has contributed much to the artistry ambience in Garcha’s hotel portfolio.
Bespoke elements such as artisanal ice and an international selection of the finest of cigars, together with the extensive collection of whiskeys, bourbons, and other crafted spirits bring a truly complete and unique experience to guests of The Whiskey Library.

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.

The historic Long Bar of Raffles Hotel returns fully restored and continues its proud tradition as the Home of the Singapore Sling.
The famous counter shines like new amidst decor that marries architecture and contemporary plantation-inspired motifs. Long Bar was located at Cad’s Alley in the early 1900s. At a time when improved rail and road systems brought rubber and palm oil plantation owners over to Singapore from Malaya every weekend, it was known as the ‘Rendezvous of Planters’. Not a formal bar, but rather tables placed next to another facing Bras Basah Road, it was a vantage point from which male visitors surveyed the procession of ladies.
The earthy decor of the two-storey Long Bar is inspired by Malayan life in the 1920s. The deep, rich colours and lush greenery transport patrons to the edge of a tropical plantation. In keeping with the relaxed atmosphere, guests are invited to brush peanut shells off the table and bar counter to the floor. This is quite possibly the only place in Singapore where littering is encouraged!
The Singapore Sling, widely regarded as the national drink, was first created in 1915 by Raffles bartender Ngiam Tong Boon. Primarily a gin-based cocktail, the Singapore Sling also contains pineapple juice, lime juice, curaçao and Bénédictine. Giving it the pretty pink hue are grenadine and cherry liqueur. Bartender Ngiam deliberately chose to give the cocktail this rosy colour.
Swing by the newly-reopened Long Bar for your glass of Singapore Sling today.
In the meantime, you can also say hello to your loved ones with a lovely Raffles Hotel - Singapore Sling digital postcard here.
