Tippling Club

The buzz: Chef-owner Ryan Clift says hello to Tanjong Pagar at Tippling Club’s spanking new space.The vibe: If you visited them at Dempsey, you’ll remember seeing a lot of steel and glass. At the new outlet, it’s a complete transformation. Warm, cozy, and inviting sum the vibe up, with lots of wood, pleasing greens, and three separate sections—a bar, an intimate dining space, and another dining area in front of the open kitchen.       The food: The tasting menu concept remains the same but new items have been added to both the classic menu (six courses from $160) and the gourmand menu (12 courses from $265), including foie gras apple—foie gras purée accompanied by apple in a variety of forms (freeze dried, fluid gel, dip, cold confit dice). A la carte options are also available, such as scallop ceviche with celeriac remoulade ($19).The drinks: New cocktails have been added, like Night Shift at the Potato Factory ($20), a mix of potato vodka, sky whiskey, roast potato skin and espresso. Tippling Club’s very own wine and Champagne labels, produced by makers like Casa Freschi, are also on offer.Why you’ll be back: Clift’s molecular gastronomy remains a sight to behold, plus the menu changes regularly. Also, look out for the new customizable lunch tasting menu, to be launched very soon.
