Concept Bars in Singapore

The Bank Bar + Bistro

This plush Shenton Way bar has an interior made for bankers and well-to-do types. Be greeted by polished maroon wood tables, sleek parquet flooring and walls decked with blown-up bank notes. Signature cocktails (all $16) here include Offshore Account, Financial Squeeze, and our personal favorite, Liquidated Damages, a whiskey sour with a splash of spicy Shiraz. There’s even a private 20-seater cigar lounge for that added glitz.

Bikini Bar

Helmed by bikini-clad babes, this brightly colored bar on the sandy beachfront has a chill-out summer ambiance. Take your pick of mojitos and margaritas (both from $14) or popular cocktails like Blue Lagoon ($13), Long Island iced tea ($15) and Pina Colada ($14). Enjoy mains like the Beachy prawn pizza ($22) and margarita pizza ($19) while sitting on wooden benches under giant umbrellas.

Handle Bar

Step inside this place and you’ll have a sudden urge to ride a bike. From photos of real-life renegades and bike parts donning the walls to furniture made out of motorbikes, this bar oozes a rebel-on-the-road vibe. Check out the signature motorized margaritas ($12)—concocted by a special gas blender that looks just like a bike’s engine—and pad your stomach with Sudden Death Wings ($16) and Bad Attitude stuffed jalapenos ($10).
