The next time you’re looking for a place to celebrate TGIF, or when you want to catch up with friends over top-tier drinks, we’ve got you covered with our guide to the best bars in Singapore.


1. Jigger & Pony

Jigger & Pony is no stranger to those who love a good drink. As one of Singapore’s OG cocktail bars, Jigger & Pony was instrumental in shaping the city’s cocktail culture in its early days. Since then, the bar has become a near-permanent fixture on the Asia’s 50 Best Bars list, with it coming out on top in 2022.

Jigger & Pony’s convivial atmosphere is matched by an equally fun cocktail menu, with drinks priced at $28++ each. Come by during happy hour, however, and you’ll be able to enjoy a selection of cocktails for just $19++. While the menu is dominated by house creations, you’ll also find a fair few classics—think Old Fashioneds, Negronis, and Sours.

If you’re looking for a bar to impress, whether it be for date night or to flex Singapore’s gems to a tourist friend, then Atlas is your best bet. By now, its stunning Art Deco interiors, champagne selection, and gin tower are world-renowned attractions, but you come for the decor and stay for the food and drinks.

Image credit: Atlas

The world’s largest gin collection finds a home at Atlas, so you’ll definitely find a good G&T here. Otherwise, pore over their wide range of house cocktails, spanning classic gin cocktails such as the martini and French 75, to their innovative, themed cocktail menu. This time around, their cocktail selection is a nod to Paris during the birth of the Art Deco movement. If you’re feeling peckish, the bar also doubles as a restaurant serving up elevated French bistro classics. Be sure to book in advance.

3. Junior The Pocket Bar


JUNIOR THE POCKET BAR BEST BARS IN SINGAPORE
Image credit: Junior

Junior The Pocket Bar is the very definition of small but mighty. The space seats 25, living up to its pocket bar moniker, and is well-known for its rotating cocktail menu that changes every few months. Aside from their inventive cocktails, each edition of their drinks menu also casts a spotlight on spirits harder to come by in Singapore, from rare mezcals to rums. Previous menu themes were built around mezcal and tequila, alpine ski culture, the tiki bar movement, and New Orleans’ cocktail scene.

Accompanying the cocktails are a lean handful of bites, which also tie into the menu’s overall theme. It’s not the kind of spot for a full-on dinner, but great for nibbles, or to satisfy a craving in between all the drinking.

Barbary-Coast-Ballroom

Get the best of both worlds at Barbary Coast, a double-concept cocktail bar along Boat Quay inspired by the San Franciscan gold rush circa the 1800s. Housed within three historic shophouses, the two-storey establishment is divided into Deadfall, a casual, fuss-free dive bar with affordable, flat-priced cocktails and pub fare.

Image credit: Barbary Coast

For a more elevated vibe, head upstairs to the Barbary Coast Ballroom, an opulent space with private booths, crafted cocktails, and picture-perfect charcuterie boards lined with house-cured meats, cheeses, and the like. It gets pretty packed on Friday and Saturday nights, when the bars both run till 3am.

If you’re someone who takes your coffee seriously, you’d probably know of Platform, the Amoy Street bar known for their seasonal range of filtered coffees, served amidst clean, minimalist interiors that set one immediately at ease. They’re also a cocktail bar with a selection of low and no-ABV drinks, as well as crafted cocktails, priced from $23++. The latter is inspired by flowers, where each drink is light, floral, and refreshing in their own distinct ways—excellent to cool off with after a long day circling the busy CBD.

Aside from tipples, the bar also has a range of sharing plates and plated desserts if you’d like to have a meal here. The dishes are all Italian fare and come from their neighbouring restaurant, Santi’s.

6. Rebel Rebel

Singapore has a fair few bars specialising in wines from boutique winemakers, and Rebel Rebel is one such institution. Like the song the bar gets its name from, Rebel Rebel’s wine list is equal measures fun and provocative, with quite the selection of grower—read: artisan—champagne and skin contact, AKA orange, wines.

Image credit: Rebel Rebel

Aside from their vino selection, Rebel Rebel also has a menu focused on nose-to-tail cooking. The minimal-waste dining concept maximises all the ingredients each dish is built upon without skimping on flavour. A handful of the dishes here have a distinct fusion flair, think Kimchi Pasta ($30++) and Otah Tamale ($19++).

Another one of Singapore’s cocktail darlings is Native, an Asia’s 50 Best Bars regular, as well as one of the early champions of cocktails made with locally sourced, as well as foraged, ingredients, regional produce, and spirits. The cocktails here are as creative as they are sustainable and are all zero waste. You won’t find the classics here. Instead, it’s all about bevvies that embrace quintessential Asian flavours, from sour plum to kaffir lime.

Aside from cocktails, Native also has a comfort food menu, with a concise range of Southeast Asian-inspired dishes: think moringa fries to nasi bakar.

Analogue Initiative is Native’s sibling concept, and stretches the OG’s menu and its sustainable focus beyond its Asian roots. Step into Analogue Initiative and you’re greeted by a stunning bar entirely 3D printed from recycled plastic bottles. Settle in, and get excited by the experimental, low-carbon impact menu. The cocktails, as expected, are excellent, and as accommodating as they are to drinkers as they are to teetotallers, thanks to the equal amount of no-ABV drinks on the menu.

Analogue is also the type of spot you’ll want to stay at for dinner. The menu is all plant-based but no less full-flavoured. Even if you’re there for drinks and small bites, the plant-based Nuggetz ($18++) with the addition of their Curry Crack Sauce ($3++) are a must.

Sago House has become a Chinatown institution despite having only opened in 2020. Founded by industry veterans, the vibey bar offers a rotating menu of cocktails that change according to the week, depending on seasonal ingredients. This is accompanied by six classic options, and a food menu packed with comfort eats: think grilled sandwiches, mac and cheese and such.

Sago House is also a standout because the award-winning hospitality here goes above and beyond without feeling too stifling. Also, most of Sago House’s interiors are built by hand, by the founding team, with primarily upcycled materials. The result: a cool, comfortable space with a long U-shaped bar centrepiece where you can watch the maestros work, or smaller, more intimate booth seats where you can hang with your gang. Bookings are recommended.

Praelum always has a buzz going for it, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. The long-standing wine bar along Duxton Hill is perfect for dinner, drinks, or the two, especially if you’re dining in smaller groups. The food menu is predominantly French, though the wine selection branches outwards to offer quite the varied tour around wine regions large and small.

Prices start at $20++ per glass, though we’d recommend getting their random flights of three or five glasses, from $55++. The resident somm will have a bit of a Q&A with you to find out your preferences and curate a selection.

For a wine bar that doesn’t take itself too seriously, you have to head down to Clarke Quay’s Wine RVLT. The progressive wine bar spotlights smaller, boutique producers from across the world, so if you’re lost in the sauce when picking a bottle, let the somm take the reins.

Come hungry, if possible, so you can enjoy Wine RVLT’s equally comforting food menu, which includes bites such as the Crispy Mochi with 24 Months Comte and Iberico Bellota ($28++), or Chilli Crab Ragout “Cheong Fun” ($28++). The wine bar also often holds buzzy one-night-only events and guest shifts, which they advertise on their socials.

In a city where new establishments come and go, one of the pioneering cocktail bars in Singapore, Shin Gi Tai, has remained a fixture. The Telok Ayer speakeasy is all about Japanese-style cocktails and small bites, served amidst the bar’s cosy premises.

While you can have your cocktails omakase here, we also suggest you pore over their concise list of classic cocktails, and grab yourself their Negroni, if you’re a fan. The simple cocktail is executed perfectly here, with hand-carved ice to finish. Japanese whisky fans can also expect an impressive line-up here.

Employees Only is something of a legend in New York, and its Singapore outpost is well on its way to attaining similar status. This speakeasy is parked under a non-descript neon sign that reads “Psychic”. Once past the doors, you’re greeted by a plush haven split into a long bar area and a dining room, both of which tend to get very buzzy on a weekend.

On the cocktail side of things, you get all the EO classics you’d find in the OG New York bar here, as well as some Singapore signatures. If you’re doing drinks and food, the dinner menu stars all American classics and some decadent additions, including their must-have Bone Marrow Toast ($16).

Ginza’s polished bars have a very distinct vibe of their own, and with Live Twice, you can now enjoy that energy on home soil. The bar is founded by the same folks behind Jigger & Pony, and offers a fuss-free approach to cocktails. The Japanese approach to minimalism manifests in all the drinks here—it is all about letting the combination of simple, premium ingredients shine at Live Twice.

Seasonal specials and an equally lengthy list of spirits are also available, alongside their permanent cocktail line-up. Live Twice is also great for food; they’re one of the earlier pioneers of the sando trend in Singapore, and their Wagyu Katsu Sando ($44++) remains a crowd fave. Note that this bar is cashless.

Image credit: Nutmeg and Clove

Currently, their menu centres around Singapore identities, with drinks that are an ode to famed local movie stars, singers, radio DJs, TV icons—think Phua Chu Kang—and chefs. Aside from being a fantastic spot to hang out on a Friday night, Nutmeg & Clove is also at the top of the list for spots we’d bring out-of-towners to.

A longtime presence on the Asia and World’s 50 Best Bars list is Manhattan, Regent Hotel’s crowning jewel. As with most speakeasy-style concepts, Manhattan pays homage to the prohibition era in America, but also New York’s golden age of cocktails.

The space here is oh-so-comfortable, thanks to the soft lighting, plush banquettes and armchairs, as well as the snug private rooms that you can choose to book out if you’re hanging with the gang and want a bit of respite from the weekend night buzz.
