We are in the midst of Singapore Cocktail Festival, which is in its ninth year and is seeing a packed and, ehem, spirited calendar of events running from now till May 21. These include soirees at well-loved watering holes such as Republic Bar and The Elephant Room, which are headlined by top mixologists from Singapore and abroad. If that’s not enough, then consider the crowd-pleaser: the scheduled bar crawls. Beyond this three-week affair, though, the bar and cocktail scene in Singapore is in high gear thanks to more cool new concepts popping up. Ahead, we highlight some of the spots you want to check out for your next boozy night out.
