9 new bars and cocktail menus to cheers to this September 2022

Raise a glass to an (almost) mask-free future in Singapore with these nine new bars and cocktail menus for September 2022.

Making a debut is Night Hawk, a cocktail bar that reaches across time and space, while Drunken Farmer brings their natural wine approach to Robertson Quay. Renku Bar & Lounge opens up its Southeast Asian cocktails to all in the evening, as Nomi and Ka-EN expand the diversity of sake offerings in town.

Local brewer Pink Blossoms is trucking its beers to the CBD through a mobile taproom, and Ce La Vi taps on a new talent to refresh its contemporary Asian cocktails.

On Orchard Road, Ginger.Lily turns to the shopping strip’s history as a plantation for drink inspirations, and multi-disciplinary platform Tezarekt harnesses technology to concoct unexpected cocktail combinations. Read on for all the details.

9 new bars and cocktail menus in Singapore this September 2022

Ce La Vi has a new bartender in Hans Anuar, who has introduced a slew of creations to the rooftop destination. For ideas, Anuar turned to flavours from his native Malaysia such as jambu asam boi, a mixture of pickled guava and chilli spice that is used in the Guavarita, and pisang salai, a traditional dessert of toasted banana peels and gula Melaka turned into the Rum-a-laka. Other serves include the High “T”, which transforms the whisky sour with spiced honey tincture, and a melon piña colada called Dewfinity.

Night Hawk

Night Hawk is a new bar in Tanjong Pagar fronted by popular local bartender Peter Chua. The venue takes cues from artist Edward Hopper’s mid-century masterpiece “Nighthawks,” and references both history and the future. Drinks have a celestial bent to them, from the Gamma-ray Holiday (gin, melon, pineapple, citrus, bitter gourd, soda) to Solar Flare Solstice with yellow Chartreuse, fino sherry, and beetroot . Cocktail shots and well-executed non-alcoholic serves are also on the menu.
