Where to drink in Singapore this July 2019
We’re halfway through the year, and we’ve just passed a deluge of boozy festivals that have come our way — think the likes of Beerfest Asia and Negroni Week 2019. Just because these big events have come to a close doesn’t mean Singapore has entered a drought when it comes to good things worth drinking.
Here’s a roundup of the new bars in our city you ought to visit for quality cocktails, wines and more liquid goodness.
Singaporeans love a good rooftop bar, and Taki Taki is the next we can add to the rotation. It may not be a skyscraping outpost, but this new haven to rum and classic tiki cocktails make for a worthy contender to catch the sunset with a cocktail in hand when you’re in the Chinatown area.
It’s not often that a bar offers something we’ve rarely come across, especially in a market so educated about food and drink like Singapore’s. Txa Pintxo Bar, housed in the recently overhauled Alkaff Mansion, is one of those intriguing gems. Txa Pintxo Bar serves up pintxos, a Basque country take on tapas served exclusively on skewers, along with Spanish wines and cocktails. Pay it a visit next weekend and revel at the gamut of Basquian morsels offered as a companion to your glass of Tempranillo.
