Being a stone’s throw away from alcohol nearly anywhere in Singapore has never caused the popularity of house parties to ebb. These parties often require a home bar. It doesn’t matter if your notion of a home bar means the kitchen counter, a living room, or a solid oak bar cabinet — you’d want to impress as a good host. Regardless of the occasion or the type of party, here are some unique gadgets guaranteed to get a reaction from your guests.

Alkemista Alcohol Infusion Lab

Craft infused spirits at home with the Alkemista Infusion Vessel, a mini-infusion lab for your bar counter. It simplifies the process of spirit infusions by adopting the simple mechanism of a Japanese teapot. It can hold 750ml of spirits and 200ml of infusion ingredients. With one of these in your home, the cocktail possibilities are endless.

Le Whaf carafe

Make like Tom Haverford in Parks & Recreation and treat yourself to an atmospheric cocktail. Le Whaf extracts the essence of your tipple and turns it into a low-calorie cloud, which you then “drink”. It sounds rather gimmicky, but is a neat gift for anyone into molecular mixology.


It’s a 10-in-one bar multi-tool that houses everything you need to make a cocktail, from a channel knife to a muddler. Couple this with a shaker and it becomes perfect for travelling bartenders or budding mixologist who hates clutter.

Somabar Robotic Bartender

Somabar is basically a Nespresso machine for your cocktails. It has pods attached with spirits and mixers of choice, the ability to infuse bitters, and is wholly controlled by Wi-Fi. Drinks are customised via an application, making you a psudeo-mixologist with just a push of a button.
