Bar Twentytwo

This low-profile, speakeasy-type drinking spot is the latest in the series of the city’s “secret” bars, taking its name after its address at 22 Mosque Street. It’s got the now-standard Industrial-chic look with dark stone-tiled floors, concrete walls, unfinished brick pillars and exposed ceilings to channel the bare-bones vibe, though the funky designer chairs and art works (22 doubles as a gallery for budding contemporary artists) adds graphic interest. Complementing its Thai-focused food menu is a collection of Asian-inspired signature cocktails such as pandan valley ($15) infused with gin, lychee, lemon and homemade pandan syrup and lemongrass mojito ($15). Not in the mood for cocktails? There’s a substantial list of wines (from $10 a glass), premium spirits including Patron tequila and Glenfiddich (from $9 a glass), liquors ($10 a glass) and standard beers (from $9) to be had as well.
