What do you think about This Rooftop Bar Experience Features World First Tea-Based Spirits and Cocktails?

Move over coffee; the conversation from now on is all about tea.

From the cocktail legends behind The Other Room – which has a strong presence in Asia’s 50 Best Bars for the past few years – their latest concept breaks new ground by taking the rooftop bar to a new level. Curated as the antithesis of The Other Room, The Other Roof provides a complete rooftop bar experience with an exceptional craft spirit programme amidst the venue’s relaxed, open-skied charm.  

The Other Room
Opening its doors at the iconic Ann Siang House, which underwent a revamp and reopened as a vibrant integrated lifestyle destination, the 75-seater rooftop bar (up to 150-seats by special request) looks back to tea’s storied past and redefines the heritage-inspired narrative by moving forward and offering modern inspired libations. “The Other Roof is our interpretation of a rooftop bar where cocktail hour meets tea time and combines them together for a fun vibe, exceptional hospitality, innovative tea-infused spirits and comfort bites,” says Dario Knox, also known as the ‘The Man Behind’ the projects.

With tea leaves sourced from all over the world, the team from The Other Roof curates the leaves to produce bespoke blends which form the base of their drinks programme. These in-house tea blends are unique to any bar in the world and are also available for retail, offering diners a one-of-a-kind experience that they can create in the comfort of their own home. 

 Expect familiar, comfort bites of charcuterie, cheeses, oysters, bikinis, sliders, as well as vegetarian options at The Other Roof. The tea ritual is one of sharing and bringing people together, and it is this spirit of sharing when it comes to food, coupled with spirited conversations in a convivial setting which brings people together at The Other Roof.
