The new bars in Singapore to quench your thirst at this September 2018

August may have been a tad slow when it came to new bars opening their doors in Singapore, but September is set to be far more exciting. These fledgeling establishments are going all out to refresh the scene — we now have a whisky bar that breaks the mould by pricing single malt drams according to age statement, a wine lounge in Regent Hotel that offers Domaine de la Romanée-Conti by the glass, our very first coffee cocktail joint, and more.

Read on for your roadmap to alcoholic nirvana this September.

The Cooperage

There’s a new whisky bar in Clarke Quay. The Cooperage combines all the plush decor of a traditional whisky lounge with an approach to pricing whisky that breaks convention — you get a curated selection of 12, 15, 18 and 21-year-old whiskies with price tags that match their age, and the list doesn’t feature swill either.

The So Sofitel situation gets a poolside rooftop bar and club this month with 1927. The space, which fits 120 people, comes equipped with a bar that shakes up house cocktails that soothe your soul from the outdoor heat, so if you’re one of those with a penchant for fruity and refreshing libations, this is your Friday night mecca.

78 Alkofelic

The combination of coffee and cocktails seem a match made in paradise for caffeine junkies. If you count yourself one, then 78 Alkofelic is made for you. Promising more than just espresso martinis and Irish coffees, Singapore’s first dedicated coffee cocktail bar will surprise with inventive house drinks mixed with the fresh roast of the day. Coffee beans used are either of single-origin variety or blended in-house for a uniquely 78 Alkofelic touch.

Edit: This bar is permanently closed.

Telok Ayer Arts Club

The latest venue to open in the downtown area is Telok Ayer Arts Club, situated along McCallum Street. So fresh is the venue that we can only tease what it’ll offer for now, but word has it the gallery space will also be inhabited by a restaurant and cool cocktail bar, with the triad sharing a unified concept that bridges gaps between art, food and drink.

Park 90

The tea lounge at Regent Hotel now has a nighttime alter ego by the way of Park 90, a wine bar that seriously packs on the prestige. Fronted by sommelier Mason Ng, formerly of Atlas, Park 90 boasts a selection of over 800 labels of wine, most of them bearing a Robert Parker rating of over 90 points and above. No matter your opinion of that rating system, Park 90 still impresses for two reasons — a jaw-dropping selection of French wines, particularly Burgundies that are a challenge to source, and the option to order 2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grand Cru by the glass for a casual S$5,500.
