( – As one of a Four Tiger economies, Singapore sees a satisfactory share of parched business travellers.
Any visit traveller knows that there’s some-more to see (and imbibe) over what’s offering in a hotel room minibar. To perform clients, or for an tell during a day’s end, meaningful a best watering holes is de rigueur for perceptive business visitors. Here are Singapore’s tip booze tips.
The Singapore cocktail stage is described as risk-taking and splashy, fuelled by disposable income from tourists, business travellers and well-heeled locals. Hotels and restaurants are fervent to uncover off charming drinks done with internal pleasant fruit (mangosteen, lychee, immature papaya), mostly incorporating formidable salty, green or sharp flavours that might seem surprising to Western palates accustomed to straight-up honeyed cocktails.
The iconic Singapore watering hole stays a Long Bar (here) in a colonial-style Raffles Hotel, home of a equally barbarous Singapore Sling. Although a bar is reported to have mislaid some of a radiance given a days of Somerset Maugham and Rudyard Kipling, it stays a unaccompanied place to sip a Sling.
Be warned: a Sling is too honeyed for some. Mixologist Eben Freeman, who spent several years in Singapore building bar programmes for AvroKo properties, offers this advice: “Ask for your Sling to be hand-shaken, with only a lurch of grenadine.” The Long Bar pumps out thousands of a renouned splash any day, he says, and a other mixture in a Sling (pineapple juice, Benedictine, Cointreau and Cherry Heering) are copiousness honeyed on their own. After, all, if you’re formulation to bombard out US$20 for a drink, advises Freeman, we wish that splash done properly.
There’s most to booze in Singapore over a Sling. On a Fullerton Hotel’s belligerent floor, a neat Post Bar (here) (so named since a bar reveals a strange roof of a pre-Fullerton General Post Office) is another classic. “All a business throng goes there for Caipirinhas,” Freeman says.
Meanwhile, a breathtaking perspective from a New Asia bar (, located on Level 71 of Swissôtel The Stamford, creates it a popular, corporate-chic end for breathtaking martini guzzling.
For travellers peaceful to go a small serve afield for well-made classical cocktails, Freeman also recommends a forest-meets-veranda bar Klee (+65 6479 6911) in a former fort compound, Rochester Park. And, “for a truly brave and wealthy,” a Tippling Club (, where barman-turned-chemist Matthew Bax of Der Raum in Australia mixes adult memorable science-inspired cocktails such as a Smokey Old Bastard, a blockade cocktail served with wisps of “orange smoke” trapped within a mason jar.
