That is why we have curated a list of the best cocktail bars in Singapore. Each one has its own charm that sets it apart from the rest. So whether you’re seeking luxury, a place where you can just dance all night, or simply a place to relax, we have an option for you. You’re in for a real good time!

1. Anouska’s

A bar that screams luxury, Anouska is an ode to Anouska Hempelone. You might know her from her former Bond girl days, or her career as one of the top interior designers in the world (She’s in the top 100). Popular for her originality, and stunning visuals when it comes to designing, you can imagine how beautiful the bar must be. You can enjoy her favourite and timeless drinks from the 70s and the 80s. Try out several drinks like premium wine, champagne, and cocktails with unique flavours.

But if you’re confused about a good start, then their signature cocktail ‘Escape to Kaifeng’ which is infused with chrysanthemum cardinal will take you on a floral trip. Or their ‘East Meets West’ which adds a touch of Asian to the classic Western drinks. Chocolate lovers, they’ve got you covered as well with their ‘Hong Long Choc’. Sip on the cocktail tribute ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ and take a stroll around admiring the beauty of the place. Martini lovers will adore their spin on Anouska’s classic martini.

4. Flying Monkey

Okay, hear us out. We all know that India has one of the most delicious and varied cuisines in the world. Flying Monkey is a rare gem that actually does serve authentic Indian flavours, but that’s not why they’re on this list. You absolutely need to try out the various cocktails that they serve in the bar. The bar offers customers a variety of blends of cocktails infused with classic Indian flavours.

Their cocktail, the ‘Mumbai to Milan’ has Darjeeling gin, Campari, dry vermouth, and lemon which leave an explosion of flavours on your taste-buds. The ‘Pataka Cocktail’ has honey whisky, ginger, basil, and mint. Craving something that smells as good, then their ‘Gulabo’ will blow your mind. It is a vodka cocktail infused with rose syrup, and notes of lemon. Their hilariously named ‘Rowdy Baby’ is perfect for chocolate fans as it is a mix of tequila, dark chocolate, and chai. Talk about guilty pleasures in life.

The flavors are all unique, and we hadn’t even imagined that they could go so well together. Using a mix of everyday spices that are extremely common in India, these small details are what make them more endearing. Now you won’t just associate good food with India; their cocktails are equally amazing!
