just how gorgeous is that bar? a stark contrast to jigger & pony just a post before, this place is all darkly-lit elegance and chichiness, filled with beautiful, dressed up people. it’s firmly adult, which is to say that there’s a calm about here that’s very beguiling to this old soul.
an upmarket whisky bar in the regent singapore, there’s also a wide menu for your choice of inebriation. there’s also quite a bit of intriguing-sounding food on the menu, though we didn’t have the stomach space for any of it. we did nibble a little on that complimentary bowl of popcorn, but it was a little stale from having sat out too long.
but everything sounded delicious – both drinks and food – and can I just say, this place knows details. my minty cocktail came with the cutest striped paper straw (so retro), and my partner’s more sophisticated glass held some crazy-fancy ice. LOOK AT THAT FANCY ICE.
it’s not cheap, but there’s a price to pay for such exclusivity and gorgeousness. the regent is a pretty old hotel, which doesn’t raise expectations, but you get to the bar, and it is this sleek, elegant box (you’ll know what I mean when you get there) lined with a cellar on the exterior, and tall black doors opening up to the perfectly-lit bar.
one of my favorite bars, for sure.
