For an America-Inspired Experience
Coming in at number 11 on the world top 100 list, Manhattan at The Regent Singapore is inspired by the glamour and sophistication of New York’s old-school hotel bars. Whiskey enthusiasts should order a drop from one of the barrels stored in the on-site rickhouse, while cocktail-filled Sunday brunch sessions are the time for alcoholic milkshakes and custom-concocted Bloody Marys and G&Ts. Whatever time of day you visit, the marble and mirrored interiors and leather and velvet armchairs are a sumptuous setting for a few cocktails.
Over in the Central Business District, the 16 American-style craft cocktails served at 28 Hong Kong Street (placed 61st) are a tribute to the hip-hop and rap scenes of four distinct regions – East Coast, West Coast, Midwest and Dirty South. Take your taste buds on a tuneful journey from dark rum creation Hittin’ Switches to the whisky, coffee and an oatmeal stout concoction that is Czech the Method. Ordering some US-style bar snacks, such as the deep-fried macaroni and cheese balls, is highly recommended.
