MO Bar brings top cocktails from around Asia to Singapore with a virtual bar tour

Last year, MO Bar brought guests on a whimsical journey with “Nomadic Foragers”, a pop-up event series that collaborated with renowned cocktail bars across Asia to showcase indigenous fruits, spices and culture in cocktails.

In the spirit of adapting to the new normal, the establishment at Mandarin Oriental Singapore — now one of Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2020 — will do things a bit differently this year with the Volume Two menu, offering instead a virtual bar tour to those seeking an adventure amidst travel restrictions and lockdowns around the world.

Held in partnership with top venues in the region — including Vesper (Bangkok), Alice Cheongdam (Seoul), Room by Le Kief (Taipei), and Sidecar (New Delhi) — the Nomadic Forager Virtual Bar Tour will see each participating bar offer two cocktails from the new menu. This limited-run will allow guests in these cities to enjoy MO Bar’s creations without having to even travel out of town.

But the experience doesn’t end there. Every drink has a story to tell, and guests can dive right into an in-depth exploration via a live virtual session with MO Bar’s team. The exchange will also see participating venues take turns to offer their signature cocktails for one week at the bar. This virtual guest shift is definitely the most 2020 way of indulging in top tipples from around Asia, but we’re not complaining.
