The cup runneth over this week with new bars, beers, and even a club launching in our thirsty shores. Here’s what to do and where to go if you’re looking for a drink this weekend.

Alchemist Beer Lab

Infusion beers are the name of the game at Alchemist Beer Lab. Established by the team behind Little Island Brewing Co., the joint holds an impressive array of house-infused beers for your drinking pleasure. While the night away sampling unique flavours, from marshmallow-infused Irish stout, to pink guava cider — there’s not a boring moment for your beer-lovin’ tastebuds.

Alchemist Beer Lab is located at South Beach, 26 Beach Road, B1-16, S189768.

VLV

Here’s bidding goodbye to walking miles when drunk for supper right after clubbing. VLV, Clarke Quay‘s newest gem, is a two-storey lifestyle venue comprising a club lounge, a fine dining restaurant, as well as soon-to-open riverfront restaurant and courtyard. Chinese heritage is ingrained in VLV’s DNA. From the luxurious interior to the upscale Cantonese cuisine served in the restaurant, VLV brings new meaning to “dinner and dance”.

VLV is located at 3A Merchant’s Court, River Valley Road, #01-02 S179020.

LeVeL 33's Seasonal Brews

In preparation for Oktoberfest, craft brewery LeVeL 33 presents a new beer on tap: the festbier. Inspired by Bavarian beer, the festbier is a smooth, clean beer with a crisp finish. The sky high beer joint will also be releasing Pumpkin Ale as part of its seasonal menu in Oktober, so here’s crossing fingers that it tastes like butterbeer that puts hair on your chest.

LeVeL 33 is located at Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 1, #33-01, S018981.

Studio 1939 reinvents Old Fashioneds

They say you can always tell how good a bartender is by how they mix the classics. Potato Head Folk’s Studio 1939 bar takes it one step further by crafting a cocktail menu entirely out of Old Fashioneds. Through gruelling rounds of tests, five Old Fashioned renditions were selected for the pioneer menu that you can enjoy until the menu changes. The bar intends to keep on the Old Fashioned streak, so expect to see a slew of variations on the beloved cocktail.
