It has been three months since Jigger & Pony rose to unseat Manhattan to top Asia’s 50 Best Bars list but for the past five months or so, the bar has been closed due to the pandemic.
During the hiatus, the bar launched partnerships with the likes of dessert doyenne Janice Wong for a cocktail-chocolate pairing. Today, the drinks institution announced on Instagram that it will re-open from Wednesday, 9 September and operate from 4pm to 10:30pm.
“It feels like an age since we last greeted you at our bar,” the bar posted on Instagram. “Jigger & Pony has been temporarily closed since 27th March 2020 and it has been such a journey.”
Since it opened in 2012, the bar has been at the forefront of championing classic cocktails in an age when bartenders sometimes pushed the limit on what made a good cocktail. In 2018, it moved to its current location at Amara Hotel after six years of operating at Amoy Street.
Booking starts from 8pm on Monday, 7 September 2020. Jigger & Pony is at 165 Tg Pagar Rd, Amara Hotel, Singapore 088539
