Best Bars in Singapore with Wines on Tap

Oxwell & Co.

This fun, refreshingly non-elitist gastrobar has a stripped-down drinks list with a local touch. Think indigenous spices and botanicals—like leaves plucked fresh from nutmeg trees around Ann Siang Hill—in their housemade sangria and G&T ($12 each). And their house beer, the Oxhorn Lager ($12), is a collaboration with local brewer Jungle Beer. All of these, plus rotating wines ($12 per glass), come out of actual plumbing-style taps mounted on the wall behind the bar.


Looking and sounding like a stylish friend’s apartment with black leather, exposed brick, iPad menus and an indie-dance playlist, this wine bar is perhaps the unstuffiest of them all. The centerpiece is a long row of enomatic machines holding 32 (count ‘em!) wines sorted by flavor. You get a little “credit” card, insert it and press the right button to dispense however much of each wine you want into a glass (from $1.50 for a sampling portion). Self-service intoxication!

Ding Dong

This hip Southeast Asian small plates joint isn’t exactly the place to go for classy eats—bright pink lighting and Asian motifs lend the place a kitsch ‘70s vibe, except with thumping drum & bass rather than disco tunes—but it’s fun for drinks. Apart from an innovative cocktail list, they also serve red and white wine on tap (from $9); you can opt for a glass or go straight for a carafe of the good stuff.
