This is undoubtedly the most trying time in Singapore for the local drinks scene. Bars depend on crowds for survival, and with the new normal setting in, it's unlikely they're gonna be seeing the same level of physical patronage for a long time to come. But where there's a will (to drink) there's a way.
Tipplers out there can take heart knowing that many of our favourite cocktail bars (and distilleries) have taken measures to ensure that we can still get our drink fix sorted, even from home. Some are offering takeaway packs, while others are bottling concoctions for your drinking convenience. Here are some of the best ones out there.
These guys aren’t just delivering cocktails but also the full 28hks experience to your home. In addition to selling 250ml bottled cocktails (all $45), they are also offering a virtual House Party service, where for $110 per person, you’ll get to have drinks, bites, a music playlist and a bartender to host the party via Zoom. Perfect for large groups of friends who can’t meet up physically; delivery costs vary.
One of Singapore's best bars has opened a proper Atlas Bar Shop online to make your digital purchasing experience that much easier. You'll find their famed Atlas Martini and Negroni now available bottled ($21 each for 100ml bottles; $95 for 500ml), as well as a selection of craft gins, bar tools, mixers and spirits also available. Pretty neat. Orders above $100 get free islandwide delivery.
Some of our favourite Ballroom cocktails are now prepped for bottled delivery (375ml, 3-4 serves). Get to enjoy delicious creations like their Three Drunk Uncles ($60) and No Sleep Coast ($60), or even buy home bottles of the wines and champagnes they have in stock. Throw in items from their food menu (like the Oklahoma "Fried" Onion Burger; $12) and you're all set for a good time.
If you need a potent coffee to start the day and a stiff concoction to end the night, get both your needs sorted here. We'd recommend their Smooth Operator ($120, 5 serves) bottled cocktail or the Rose Lemonade Spritz ($40, 2 serves). For coffee, go with the Robo-one Chilled Vanilla ($8) bottled brew. Beans, drip bags and even exclusive merch are sold here too.
With a name like that, you bet you're gonna get it good. This unabashedly cheeky cocktail store and bar offers bottled concoctions like the magically Insta-friendly Unicorn Barf ($15 for 120ml); locally-inspired ones such as the Pink Lemon Barley ($15 for 120ml); and even some for all your BBT lovers out there with the whisky-based Mao Cha ($20 for 300ml) and the vodka-based Mao Cha Nude ($18 for 300ml), that both come packing with pearls. Free delivery for orders $99 and above.
This hyperlocal cocktail haunt is perfect for Singapore-inspired concoctions like the Milo Medley and Tipsy Nonya. Single serves start from $19.80, while large bottles suitable for home parties are priced around $100.
These guys got one of the most eye-catching online shops around to sort out your drinking needs. Go for Pony, the new bottled cocktail brand from the Jigger & Pony Group that takes the bar to your home—and everywhere else. Choose from two-serve cocktails like the Vesper ($30) or the Sakura Martini ($30), or get the larger 500ml ones to party it up. Free delivery for orders above $70, and now your weekend plans are in motion.
This hidden pocket bar is full of whimsical drinks. Just check out their delicious libations which come in gorgeous bottles worthy as keepsakes like the Cacao, Chilcano and Corn Milk Punch. Super cool stuff. Free delivery on orders over $130.
If Hopheads Bar and The Oyster Bank are your regular haunts (it is ours), then you'll be glad to know that the same guys have launched Kiki's Reserve. Buy home hand-crafted bottled cocktails of Negronis, Lavender Raspberry Gins, Espresso Martinis and more. 120ml bottles are $20 each, while 480ml ones go for $70. They get cheaper the more you buy and you can get free delivery for orders above $200.
This restaurant and bar opened during the midst of circuit breaker, and we're just glad to see new concepts arise despite such challenging times. And it's one hell of a concept too. Started by an all-local team of F&B vets, you'll find truly Singaporean and Southeast Asian flavours in drinks like the Grass (from $48), made using locally-distilled Rojak Gin, and other interesting atypical ingredients like pickle brine, toasted rice vinegar and grass kombucha. Or try the Soy (from $48), made with Gula Melaka Arrack, spiced mango, tamarind, fermented soy and chrysanthemum. A minimum order of $50 is required for islandwide delivery ($9).
One of the top bars in Singapore offers take-home bottles of their cocktails from Regent Hotel's lobby level retail store Dolcetto, or for delivery via their website. Think bottled beverages like the Manhattan (of course), Chocolate Negroni, El Presidente, Aged Monochrome and more.
You can now get bundles of cocktails and burgers to enjoy in the comfort of your own home thanks to this award-winning Keong Saik bar. Still inspired by renowned writer/tippler Ernest Hemingway, toast to a better month ahead with The Torrents of Spring (from $38), a flavour-packed concoction made using glutinous rice cooked mezcal as well as bourbon—one any serious drinker will appreciate. Definitely get the ever-popular The Sun Also Rises (from $38), or their Garden of Eden (from $38) for a mind-blowingly good drink. We’ll leave you to it.
If you're looking for stiff, flavour-forward cocktails, this dependable rooftop bar has got you sorted. Go for the unique A Change is Needed for a drink with a nice spice kick, or the Life is Beautiful for a balanced, refreshing tipple. They've got mocktails too ($45 for a bundle of four 100ml bottles) if you're looking for daytime drinks that still offer complexity on the tongue. Free delivery for orders above $70.
