If you simply can’t pick any other drink but a martini much like James Bond, Martini Bar at Grand Hyatt Singapore is meant for you and martini lovers like you. They’ve got a variety of 30 martinis amongst their signatures, vodka-based and gin-based martinis. We’ve tried their Glamorous Cotton Candy, Coco Malibu and Apple Elixir and they are all so, so good. Baba Ganoush with pomegranate seeds & olive oil on a sourdough toast goes well with these drinks as well as their Winter Truffle Arancini with arrabiata sauce. So good!

Alibabar

A place to sip on some good kopi in the day and a cold brew in the evening, Alibabar is not your conventional bar scene. It prides itself as a hawker bar and serves food from local food stalls. So, in the day with your cuppa, you can binge on a simple breakfast of toast, bacon, scrambled eggs or waffles and by night you can relish fried prawn noodles, burgers, spring rolls, Thai pineapple rice with prawns and stir-fry. Sit outdoors, enjoy the local scene and experience Singapore the local way!

Ahhh .. we all love a Sunday brunch (don’t we or is that just me ). I have made it my personal Mission to find the best in Singapore and I might just be getting close! #manhattanbar located in the Regent Hotel, is an indulgent miss of old class charm, brooding atmosphere, smoldering cocktails and oh so good food. This is an adults only brunch that features not only a Bloody Mary station but a whiskey milkshake stand (OMG) and six (count them six!) bespoke cocktails for you to work your way through. A small but very well stocked buffet (seafood, fresh bagels, salads and amazing desserts) are complemented by two breakfast course and three lunch courses that are served at your table. With lovely service and at just $150++ for cocktails and brunch .. you really must do yourself a favor and try this one.

Went over for drinks at The Gem Bar and was gladly approached by the friendly magician performing during that period!

Jerryl was such a pleasant person who is extremely talented with magic!

Would definitely come back just to watch his performance!
