Indulge in Singapore’s bespoke cocktail experience

In Singapore a good cocktail is never more than a skip, hop and jump away with more and more hotel bars and quirky clubs adding a shot of style to the city's drinking scene.

Sultry... The Bar at Waku Ghin

In Singapore a good cocktail is never more than a skip, hop and jump away with more and more hotel bars and quirky clubs adding a shot of style to the city's drinking scene.

But if you're looking for something more than olives and nuts to accompany your martini, the only place to go is The Bar at Waku Ghin.

The food menu here is just as impressive as the cocktail list, as chef Tetsuya Wakuda employs his philosophy of using only the freshest produce to create dishes like Aburi Ocean Trout, a grilled loin of ocean trout with soy, chili, yuzu and olive oil, and the aptly named Salad of the Sea, a combination of shellfish and sushimi served with vinegar-flavoured rice.

Exquisite... Salad of the Sea

To whet your appetite even further, there's a wagyu beef open sandwich, Oscietra caviar and grilled Canadian lobster, along with pastas, cheese platters, and a fine selection of oysters.

The same attention to detail is given to The Bar's Japanese-style cocktail making, where award-winning bartenders serve up over 85 handcrafted cocktails, premium sake and whisky from all around the world.

While you're there, try the renowned Gimlet (gin, sugar syrup and freshly squeezed lime), it's Tetsuya’s all-time favourite and, after sampling quite a few myself, I can assure you it's worth it.

You can linger in the bar's sultry ambiance all night long or wander over to Waku Ghin's main dining room to try its award-winning 10-course degustation menu.
