Le Pin Wine Bar

Tucked away in a discreet corner of Orchard Plaza is this intimate 13-year-old wine bar that serves up top quality wines and whiskies from late in the night to the wee hours of the morning. While itisn’t big—accommodating no more than 28 people at a go—the unpretentious and dimly-lit space feels like a good buddy’s living room, complete with comfy leather bar stools, leather sofa, a wide screen television and a dart board toup the revelry. In many ways, itis, as the majority of guests tend to build up a rapport with bar owner Daisuke Shinohara, whose preference for premium Burgundies and rare Japanese whiskies shapes the drinks menu here. When it comes to wines, you’ll also be able to find many top labels like Chateau d’Yquem, Screaming Eagle, Henschke and Bordeaux’s best. Those peckish can order food from sister outlet Bistro duLe Pin up till 11pm.

Free-flow house wines and beers for three hours: $80 for men $55 for women
