Manhattan Bar Singapore | Singapore | Following my posts on Singapore and my favorites from my recent trip there, here I present the recently inaugurated Manhattan Bar at the Regent Hotel Singapore. Manhattan is a grand hotel bar inspired by the 19th century’s Golden Age of cocktails and fine drinking. Delivering on its name with a glamorous yet modern space reminiscent of old New York, craft bartending meets artisanal spirits to pay homage to classic and forgotten cocktails that leap from the pages of history. Savour classic and forgotten cocktails crafted from the world’s first in-hotel rickhouse and a remarkable collection of house-made ingredients. Gourmet bar bites that reflect New York’s myriad of cultures complement the inspired beverages. We had a lovely evening with local friends. If I would live in Singapore, I would be a regular of this great bar. By celebrated American Head Bartender Ricky Paiva. Featuring a Whiskies Room with over 100 American oak barrels from a small cooperage in Minnesota. Also a one-of-a-kind Ingridients Room housing a remarkable collection of unusual ingredients from around the world. The beverage menu will feature 25 seasonally rotating cocktails to take you on a journey through the rich history, cultures and flavors of Manhattan’s countless neighborhoods. One of the must-tries include Negroni and a first-of-its-kind trolley service. My choice was The Gibson – Death’s Door Gin, La Quintinye dry vermouth and celery bitters. Chef Nicholas Trosien reinvents iconic New York gastronomy, serving gourmet bites, my favorites where the Vegetarian Burgers and the Shrimp Ceviche Tacos. Two stunning private rooms compliment the sophisticated 19th century New York decor. Contemporary feel with luxuriously upholstered leather chairs and sofas and walls lined with patterned woven linen. Manhattan’s tireless attention to detail also extends to its custom cocktail glasses, handcrafted by one of the world’s oldest glass factories. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
