Singapore’s favorite cocktail festival returns for a third run

Now that we’ve experienced the first two very successful editions of Singapore Cocktail Week, it seems that the organizers have decided to turn the whole thing into an entire festival. It’s looking particularly exciting this year, especially with Singapore bars clinching top spots on Asia’s 50 Best Bars awards last year. Singapore Cocktail Festival comes with the same (if not, better) classy events across the city’s best bars and cheap(ish) cocktails we’ve all grown to love.

From Mar 16-21, you can expect cocktail bar tours, exciting parties, workshops, great promotions on cocktails, pairing menus, masterclasses and a whole slew of other boozy events to participate in. And to make things more fun, there’s going to be a massive 5,500 sqm festival village housed in a former police station built in the 1930s on 99 Beach Road that’ll be open on Mar 16-19. Entry is free and all cocktails will go for $12. There’ll be 10 cocktail and mocktail rooms by the likes of Hendrick’s Gin, BOLs and more, a food street with recognizable names like The Disgruntled Brasserie and Ninja Bowl, a Tasting Room and a live music stage. And what’s a cocktail experience without guest bartenders from around the world? This year, the head bartenders of ABV in Manila, Alice in Seoul, Bar Benfiddich in Tokyo, The Pontiac in Hong Kong and more, will be making appearances at the various cocktail parties littered across the city.

All Singapore Cocktail Festival events will be available for booking online on their website from Feb 1.
