Lumo is a new cocktail bar and restaurant unlike any other. Because its genesis is unlike any other, where Light is at the centre of its being: inspiring and driving it.
Light, a substance so banal yet ineffable, fills the 70-seat bar and restaurant in Boat Quay: suffusing it with its qualities, its values, its symbolism. ‘Lumo’ is a word in Esperanto, an artificial language, that means ‘light.’ Picking it for a name underscores one of LUMO’s defining principles – community – since Esperanto was created in 1887 as a means to unify peoples across the world through a universal lexicon.
Lumo comprises two distinct spaces – a bar and an open kitchen. A cool Scandinavian theme unifies the interior, featuring a muted palette and wood, leather and warm lighting to evoke a the feel of nicely furnished house party. Seating is informal and ‘democratic’ with high stools, counter seats, booths and dining settings inviting lots of social interaction. For instance, head over to the high tables set at a height of 95cm – ideal for both seated meals and for diners who prefer to stand and mingle. Each space also has its own ambience in sync with different playlists, underscoring the overarching message of Lumo – that any person can find his or her place on this earth, to exist and flourish under the same light.
The Modern European dishes of Head Chef Martin Wong and his team showcase key ingredients with finesse, and present them in a familiar and approachable manner. Just as light can both unify and contrast, dichotomies are explored in order to achieve a creative balance. For instance, a combination of wood-fire cooking and modern methods is applied. So are other traditional methods such as pickling, fermentation, ageing and brining, which are coupled with cutting edge technology such as Centrifuge and Thermomix to intensify flavours and achieve complexity.
The recipes are designed to complement the cocktails, with flavours supporting the drinks as diners progress from low-ABV to higher ABV’s as the night rolls along. And in line with Lumo’s inclusiveness, the cuisine is planned with an eye to dietary requirements and preferences.
Head Bartender Josiah Chee and his team eschew any fixed ‘style’, instead harmonising the Japanese and American approach to mixology to deliver a coherent experience that takes in social interaction, recommendations, showmanship and presentation. Concoctions stem from traditional recipes coupled with evolving trends, and are inspired by the things people eat and drink every day – the ‘fundamentals of life.’
The launch menu focuses on Breakfast, a daily staple. The cocktails are conceptualised around the prismatic nature of light, represented by 7 categories corresponding to the 7 constituent colours of natural light. Ranging from low to high ABV, each category is based on a study of ingredients – Brew, Milk, Fruit, ABC, ImpossibleTM Salad, Toast, Treat – distilled through culinary methods to be presented in their purest form.

Nothing manifests Basque vibrance like pintxo culture with its air of hedonistic, after-hours revelry. Located on the ground level of newly-relaunched Alkaff Mansion, TXA Pintxo Bar is the first and only bar in Singapore singularly dedicated to this experience. The letter combination ‘Txa’ is unique to the Basque language, forming the sound ‘cha’ which incidentally occurs in Hokkien to mean ‘noisy’, and in Cuban inspiring the dance cha-cha.
Pintxos (pronounced pin-chos) are small snacks served in bars to accompany drinks; and the bar-hopping culture this engenders is also referred to as pintxos. To eat at TXA is to be immersed in the uninhibited buzz of a pintxo bar in the Basque country. It is loud, fun and authentic.
Drinks include Spanish beers, wines and ciders. At the bar is a selection of signature cocktails based on wine, designed to complement the flavours of the pintxos, such as the Tinto de Pintxos created with red wine, pisco, and sweet vermouth as well as The Mansion created with brandy, Grand Marnier, cherry liqueur, and angostura bitters.
The lure of the pintxo culture really gets under one’s skin at TXA; and a stream of Basque-related activities aims to get people even closer.
Free-wheeling TXA is the vibrant soul of the Basques.

You can’t cry over spilled milk when there’s no milk to begin with. In Singapore, most fish soup eateries serve their fish soup with a dash of condensed milk. No Milk on Pahang Street offers fish soup with no added milk.

“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.

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.

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.

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.

Big adventures have simple beginnings. For Pink Blossoms Brewing, it started with one man's dream to share the delicious flavours he tasted in his beer pilgrimages with his community.
An accountant and tax advisor by training, Pink Blossoms Brewing's founder Hong Han could never imagine that he will someday become a brewer. Work brought him to the US where he became mesmerised by the diversity and creativity of the American craft beer industry. It was love at first sip. Weekends became opportunities to visit one great brewery after another. After visiting more than 100 breweries of different sizes and styles, Hong Han decided to give up his life in the corporate world to share the rich and diverse flavours he experienced with his community back home in Singapore.
In early 2018, Hong Han and his wife returned to Singapore to build their dream brewery from scratch. With the unwavering support from family, friends and the community, Pink Blossoms Brewing poured their first pint to the public a few months ago.
All patrons of Pink Blossoms Brewing are welcomed to BYOF(ood) to their tasting room and have them with their beers. Their beer menu changes form time to time. Do visit them at their tasting room to check out their latest beers.

A new chapter to a distinctive and unforgettable whiskey adventure story opens this month with the launch of The Whiskey Library. 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.
Adventure awaits within the vintage art deco exterior of The Vagabond Club. Each room within the luxurious hotel is an oasis of comfort and calm bathed in natural light, bearing the touch of the genius French designer Jacques Garcia, executed in his renowned over-the-top, maximalist panache with Parisian-chic flair.
With the unique Membership Programme, guests who sign up will enjoy 10-room nights at The Vagabond Club (fully transferrable) as part of the S$3,000 annual membership fee.
Members will also have privileged access to 80 lockers, each with its own gilded and tasselled key, evocative of a bygone era of old world charm and hospitality, kept on-site in a specially designed wood-crafted armoire placed in a private space at The Vagabond Club’s salon.
Each locker will store up to 15 bottles of whiskey. Members can bring one of their own bottles for every two bottles purchased at The Whiskey Library. Members will also enjoy special bottle pricing, access to the Vagabond Club gym and reserved seating at regular Whiskey Club events and experiences.
Each bottle at The Whiskey Library has been carefully collected from the finest distilleries from Scotland, Ireland, Japan, the US and other countries around the globe, with the collection comprising predominantly single cask and limited-edition bottles. Just as with a great literary work, each bottle is a unique work of art that stirs the imagination, beguiles the mind and excites the spirit.
The creator behind The Whiskey Library is luxury hotelier Satinder Garcha. Motivated by his love and passion for artistry, Garcha has spent two years bringing his dream to realisation.
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.

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.
