Make sure you bring your appetite when you visit Taki Taki! Who doesn’t love to kickback with about a dozen satay sticks? The familiar taste of charred chicken or beef, the sweet-spicy nuttiness of the peanut sauce.
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.
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.
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.

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!
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.

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.

Singapore’s first Latin American cocktail den and newest must-visit drinking hole Vasco has opened on Hong Kong Street.
A devilishly sultry cocktail den beckons, in the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District. This latest addition to the bar circuit is a brazen celebration of the lust for life that is Latin culture: vibrant, sultry, colourful and spirited, reflected in Vasco’s dashing ambience of killer cocktails, romantic hospitality and well executed bar bites freshly made in the visible open kitchen.
Brought to you by the talent behind The Cufflink Club The Cufflink Club, one of the world’s top ten high volume cocktail bars (Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards 2014, Best International High Volume Cocktail Bar), this is owner-founder Joel Fraser’s second outpost: a rarity in the Singapore cocktail scene. Fraser’s travels to Latin America, including a trip to Rio de Janeiro in 2014 for the FIFA World Cup, inspired him to create Vasco and bring his appreciation for Latin culture to life; an appreciation shared by Vasco partners Christian Hartmann and Andrew Walsh who also felt strongly that the South American scene was missing in Singapore.
Helming the kitchen is Executive Chef and Vasco partner Andrew Walsh, previously Executive Chef of stellar establishments Esquina and The Study. No stranger to bustling environments with top-notch food, Walsh, who is also partnering up with Fraser on a new soon-to-be-announced restaurant concept, has conceptualised a concise menu hefty with fresh ingredients and bold in flavour; making the food at Vasco a crowd-puller in itself.
Rounding up this team of some of the best in the business is Head Chef Jennifer Lee, founder of Sarnies café on Telok Ayer Street. As one of the few female head chefs in Singapore now, Lee, of Australian-Chinese descent, has worked in restaurants, bakeries and cafes all her life, and had been in Mexico City cooking and reviewing restaurants for a year prior to Vasco.
Begin the evening’s revelry with their choice of signature cocktails and Latin classics. Cachaça, Mezcal, Pisco, Rum and Tequila boldly headline the playful cocktail list here, including The Old Man & The Sea, Girl From Ipanema, Cusco Puta, Mexico ’70 and Del Monte Cartel. Making for a dangerous proposition of a decadent night out is the food, which presents a heady pleasure of more senses: try the El Cubano Sandwich, a healthy portion of pig, pickle and cheese, as well as the authentic empanadas and Peruvian inspired ceviche.
The 1,600 sq ft space with 56 seats is designed for a night of serious fun, courtesy of both Fraser and Hartmann.Expect nothing less than a lively mix of Latin beats on the stereo complete with Bossanova funk and tunes from the likes of Buena Vista Social Club to bring out the full Vasco experience.
After the runaway success of The Naked Finn, Ken Loon uproots his flagship from its one-room shack space to a 60-seater up the road.

A lean menu of small plates will also bear the same clean execution, and will change daily depending on the ingredients the kitchen team manage to source for the day.
Inspired by the craft beer and fresh seafood culture of San Diego, Draft & Craft is a unique restaurant-bar concept that serves authentic Southern Californian comfort food and specializes in craft beer, unique cocktails and artisanal cheeses.
Draft & Craft was conceptualized and founded by a couple that moved here from San Diego, who wanted to bring the freshness and easiness of Baja-influenced So-Cal dining to Singapore. The essence of So-Cal dining is fresh ingredients and is usually accompanied with a craft beer or cocktail in a casual, breezy setting. “Draft” refers to the draft gourmet beers on tap, and “Craft” refers to the craft food, cocktails and artisanal cheeses offered.
Draft & Craft serves up “Baja-style” Mexican food, which is a popular staple in Southern California because of its emphasis on fresh produce and seafood with it being typically lighter on the stomach when compared to traditional Mexican fare. Their food is mostly made from scratch, with a few components carefully sourced and selected by their chef. Highlights of the menu include epicurean versions of grilled cheese sandwiches and tacos such as the Baja Fish which consists of beer-battered and fried fish fillet, pico de gallo, fresh shredded cabbage and homemade white sauce enveloped in a warm and soft flour tortilla. In addition, Draft & Craft hopes to introduce the concept of beer and cheese pairings. The effervescence and varying flavors of different beers serves to complement a wide selection of cheeses as they bring out the subtle notes in one another. The gourmet cheese-tasting platter, as well as individual cheese wedges offered on the menu as supplemental beer pairings, were handpicked by their cheese consultant, who owns several cheese bars in Portland, Oregon.
Driven by his passion in craft beer, their beers are lovingly curated by the owner who is a beer connoisseur and home-brewer himself. Some of the offerings on tap include Stone IPA, Rogue Dead Guy Ale, Prairie Saison, and Anderson Valley Summer Solstice. The bottled beer list is constantly expanding and includes a good selection of IPAs, Trappist ales, stouts, porters and ciders.
For wine lovers, they have a selection of white and red wines carefully selected from a small and vibrant wine supplier. The wines offered are made from carefully tended vines, with minimal intervention in the cellar that is looked after by dedicated wine growers. The results are apparent- balanced, delicious and interesting wines which pair well with food. Cocktail drinkers can also choose from the craft cocktail menu that was specially concocted by the owner. The menu places a strong emphasis on fresh ingredients, such as “A Summer’s Day” which consists of champagne, elderflower liquor, and fresh cucumber honey water made from scratch daily.
Housed in a 1,000 square foot venue on the bustling Circular Road, in the heart of the Central Business District, Draft & Craft boasts an intimate setting with a capacity of 80 beer-loving patrons. Over at Draft & Craft, they hold the belief that the devil is in the details and they spare no effort in creating a great experience for you.

Do the ultimate Italian ritual - aperitivo at their stunning bar. Fine wines, cocktails, grappa, and quality bites to go with.
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.

The first of its kind, Sum Yi Tai (meaning “Third Wife” in Cantonese) brings traditional Chinese food into the modern designer bar setting.
At Sum Yi Tai, Chinese Tapas is served alongside a wide range of cocktails, remium whiskeys and a good selection of fine wines, where patrons can enjoy a tipple, while savouring a slice of roast pork or two. It is set in a multi-storey shop-house on Boon Tat Street, perched at the edge of the CBD, with the ground floor Chinese Tapas Bar, the second-floor Dining Club (with an attached private dining room), and the Private Rooftop Bar.
Upon entering Sum Yi Tai, patrons will be transported back to 1980s Hong Kong. The bar has a distinct gangland vibe reminiscent of old Hong Kong gangster movies. The first thing patrons will notice is a black Chinese dragon hanging from the ceiling, ever watchful, ever vigilant. Along the wall at the entrance of the Chinese Tapas Bar is a mosaic artwork made up of hundreds of wooden mahjong tiles, while further in, a CD wall waits, featuring the albums of many popular 1980s Canto-pop artistes. The general feel of the Chinese Tapas Bar is comfortable, friendly and familiar.
The Private Rooftop Bar presents a different atmosphere. With rattan furniture, beautiful lamps and lovely Chinese-style screen dividers adorning the surrounding area, and an exceptional view of the urban landscape, patrons will experience an exclusive yet cosy setting that is perfect for an intimate evening with close friends. Access to the Private Rooftop Bar is by invitation or reservation only.
In keeping with the 1980s Hong Kong theme, the music played at Sum Yi Tai is predominantly nostalgic 80s Canto-pop. The playlist is curated and arranged by DJ Andrew T (AOS), former Butter Factory resident, and also an investor in Sum Yi Tai. Expect up-to-date music when guest DJs are invited to spin too.
The latest edition to the Keong Saik district is an urban Izakaya, Neon Pigeon.
Inspired by the world of flavours found in the hidden spots of Tokyo and the underground culture of buzzling cities like New York and Hong Kong, the establishment is a vibrant social house offering great value for money and the soul of a Japanese Izakaya with a punch of urban grit.
With a selection of starters (appropriately named ‘Bird Feed’), soups, greens, seafood and meats, Japanese snacks are given a modern and in-house twist at Neon Pigeon. The Izakaya-style menu, designed for tastings, serves up dishes in ‘small’ or ‘large’ portions and you are recommended to order six to eight small dishes to share between two people.
A look at the menu and you will notice the heavy use of classic, no-frills Japanese flavours in the condiments and among the assortment of "Bird Feed", is a cold dish of Chilled Cucumber with home-mixed crushed chilli peanuts, nori (seaweed) and goma (sesame), as well as the Tsukune Sliders, an east-meets-west combo of a Japanese meatball patty and a western slider bun, coupled with pickled kyuri (Japanese cucumber) and tare (soy basting sauce) aioli.
Keeping up with the fun-sharing concept, Neon Pigeon also offers a large format dining option of Barbecued Pork Shoulder for groups of four to six. With a two-day advance order required, the hearty fare of pork shoulder is slow-cooked for 20 hours and served in a black pepper teriyaki glaze, with a ginger scallion dipping sauce, bibb lettuce wraps, steamed buns, a spring onion salad, onigiri rice cake, kimchi and pickles to complement.
Also an integral part of the concept’s underground vibe is the Neon Pigeon bar. The bar’s Japanese-inspired drinks list includes a selection of Japanese beers and whiskeys, each a representative of different prefectures, as well as a curated list of spirits and Japanese inspired speciality cocktails. These include Throw A Kyuri-Ken, a vodka-based cocktail with a refreshing touch of lemon juice, yuzu and cucumber, as well as Harajuku Girl, a mix of gin, shiso leaf, and plum bitters.
The bar also houses a selection of sake of varying fragrances and complexity, including a range of Junmai, Daiginjo, Ginjo and Honjozo sakes, that were all hand-picked from sake distilleries across Japan to complement the dishes offered at Neon Pigeon.
Specially designed by US-based EDG Interior Architecture + Design, the Neon Pigeon space at The Working Capitol building on Keong Saik is built to own the vibe of a hidden spot off the main street only known to the locals, as a veiled corner of an urban metropolis. The exterior shows only a fluorescent pink pigeon, lit when in business, while the interior is paved with raw elements of steel and bricks that are softened with sophisticatedly designed wood finishing, giving the social hangout an urban grit with comfort and familiarity – an atmosphere reminiscent of Shibuya district in Tokyo or East Village in New York. A semi-open concept kitchen is also featured, with the action in the kitchen open for a close-up view.
A final and crucial touch to the space is the loud graffiti work plastered on the walls of the interior that gives the restaurant a touch of the underground New York City vibe. The team had specially commissioned local visual artist, ZERO to create these murals.
The Bar & Billiard Room at Raffles Hotel marks a new era with its return to a storied and sophisticated, yet relaxed bar and lounge specialising in whisky, original and imaginative cocktails, craft beers and high quality cigars.
Noted as the oldest existing bar in its original location in Singapore, the Bar & Billiard Room will now present up to 400 curated whiskies alongside an entirely new cocktail list and bar menu.
With a beautiful room and outdoor covered terraces, the unique and historic setting at Bar & Billiard Room naturally lends itself to the new evolution. The Bar & Billiard Room will also serve as an everyday meeting place as well as for special occasions.
Christoph B. Nyfeler shares his 16 years of whisky experience as Raffles Singapore’s Resident Whisky Expert. Of the 400 hand selected whiskies, many are limited editions and directly imported for the bar. The whisky list boasts a strong Scottish presence with a good selection of American bourbons and Japanese whiskies rounding off the collection.
To add special interest, Christoph will host whisky events such as whisky appreciation masterclasses and whisky dinners regularly. He can also create exclusive whisky pairing menus for groups and corporate events of up to 20 people. You can share your individual taste preferences with Christoph who will then customise a dinner menu where courses are paired with different types of single malt whiskies.
Equal attention has been given to the new whisky-led cocktails created by Raffles Singapore Restaurant and Bar Operations Manager Randolph Velasco and his award-winning bartenders. With special skills and knowledge of infused liqueurs and house-made bitters, the team have based the bar’s new concoctions on classic cocktails with a modern twist in Menu highlights include the BBR 1896, a nod to the year the Bar & Billiard Room was established. The complex cocktail is a delight for the senses; the bourbon is first fat-washed in butter for a creamy mouth feel and savoury flavour, mixed with Angostura bitters, smoked with chamomile tea leaves for a subtle, floral aroma and finally garnished with a slice of orange peel.
The Old Nick was a favourite tipple for navy officers who needed some liquid courage before heading out to sea. The Bar & Billiard Room’s version is a combination of Scotch whisky, thyme liqueur, Dom Benedictine, orange and lemon bitters. The comprehensive cocktail menu encompasses other base spirits such as gin, tequila and vodka as well. Look forward to the Miss “H”, Randolph’s take on the ubiquitous martini featuring kiwi, Cointreau, lime, and muddled kiwi fruit.
Bar bites include a selection of sophisticated nibbles and more substantial sharing plates. An array of cold and hot dishes can either be enjoyed as an accompaniment to drinks or as full-fledged meal. Menu highlights include Crabmeat Cigars, shredded fresh crab meat wrapped in vine leaves.
For a sweet finish in keeping with the bar's theme, Chocolate Whisky Stones are available in three different flavours – dark, milk and white chocolate. The chocolate is first melted down and infused with whisky before being placed in moulds to resemble the whisky stones commonly used to chill the spirit without diluting the drink.
The Bar & Billiard Room also houses one of the five original billiard tables from the turn of the century and you are invited to have a game over drinks. On Friday and Saturday evenings, the bar will feature live jazz.
Situated in the vibrant and eclectic enclave of Tiong Bahru, the modern and historic juxtaposition of the restaurant atop an art-deco straits settlement boutique hotel fits perfectly with the surroundings.

As Déliciae’s founder and CEO Olivier Bendel believes that every bar has a shelf life, a revamp seemed only natural for 83 Club Street – the oldest bar on Club Street. 83 was free, fun and a bit decadent – this will remain the same with Bumbo Rum Club.
Olivier had always imagined a place filled with fun and laughter over tantalizing food and specialty cocktails. Bumbo, a word that evokes playfulness and gaiety, is a perfect representation of that belief. As a connoisseur of the notorious pirates’ drink, he wanted Rum to be the focus. Bumbo, also a drink made from rum, water, sugar and nutmeg, was a hot favorite in the Caribbean when piracy was rampant. With such delicate nuances in the word, Bumbo Rum Club was thus conceived.
Further inspiration by muses such as the iconic Caribbean palm tree and the Caribbean Sea helped conceptualize BRC’s overall design. An aged-barrels feature wall additionally instills a sense of rusticity reminiscent of olden day pirate ships and Caribbean holidays. One novel and unique highlight of BRC is the Bumbo Bell, which resembles an antique Ship’s Bell. Whoever rings the bell, must buy shots for everyone inside the club! Once the bell is rung, BRC will close its doors within 3 minutes. Everyone inside then gets a special BRC shot from the bell-ringer. Join the BRC Hall Of Fame by buying the most shots.
Boasting a whopping collection of 76 rums from more than 20 countries, 7 homemade infused rums as well as 25 exquisite rum cocktails, BRC was created for rum lovers. Cocktail aficionados, try the signature Bumbo Rum Club Cocktail for a sweet touch. Or get adventurous with Discover The Bumbo Rum Club – made with four different rums and BRC secret ingredients! Choose from four enticing punch bowl flavors for sharing if you are more than two; or simply work your way through all.
The mouth-watering menu of Caribbean goodness will also be more than enough to keep your palate satisfied throughout the night. Influenced by South American, Caribbean and South USA cuisine and using only the finest and freshest ingredients, the food at BRC will explode a myriad of flavors in your mouth.
Want a tasty refreshing appetizer? Choose from their Salmon, Sea Bass or Prawn Ceviches; or get a trio for sampling. For some zest and slight spice, order the Cuban Tomato Tartine – a delicious concoction of toasted garlic bread, juicy tomatoes, cheese and bits of jalapenos. Carnivores, go for the delectable Costillas de Cerdo
(Blackcurrant Pork Ribs). Melt-in-your-mouth tenderness mixed with a subtle sweetness of fresh blackcurrants will create a magical combination that leaves you wanting more.
With special themed programs lined up every night, you will always be entertained. Step into Bumbo Rum Club and be transported to the world of Caribbean sensuality and tastes.
