Izakaya-concept bars have already made their mark in Singapore, and locals here are familiar with these Japanese gastropubs serving small plate bites to go with your pint. Still, many of the new bars in Singapore this month have hopped back on the izakaya shinkansen, making the combination of yakitori and booze their selling point.
That aside, the selection of new watering holes includes a whisky bar that looks like a members’-only club, a place where you can have cocktails and claypot rice, and a ramen bar where you can enjoy your sake with a side of rich bone broth.
Here are all the new bars in Singapore you ought to visit in August. With this list, your weekends are straight up sorted.
