Travel to the roar­ing 1920s with AT­LAS, a grand lobby and bar in Sin­ga­pore, and en­joy the iconic Hong Kong sky­line over cu­rated cock­tails at the trendy CÉ LA VI Hong Kong.

Just when you thought you'd seen all the novel trends and quirky con­cepts in the bar and club scene, AT­LAS is bring­ing back the ba­sic that mat­ters the most: class. Tak­ing up the ground floor of one of Sin­ga­pore's most iconic build­ings, Parkview Square, AT­LAS is all dash­ing and dap­per, and will im­me­di­ately trans­port you to the gilded age of the 1920s. Pic­ture the grand­est li­brary you can imag­ine, but re­place the books with bot­tles. Bathed in dif­fer­ent shades of Cham­pagne, with art de­coin­spired ta­pes­tries, bal­conies and leather seat­ing, com­ing in to AT­LAS ig­nites the jazz spirit in you. While AT­LAS opens for din­ing and drink­ing through­out the day and night, the place is at its most stel­lar in the evening, when the in­ti­mate golden glow pro­vides a glam­orous, yet welcoming, sanc­tu­ary after a long day.

There's more than what meets the eye at AT­LAS, as the bar holds one of the big­gest and the finest col­lec­tions of gin, Cham­pagne and other spir­its in Asia. The afore­men­tioned bot­tles lin­ing the an­tique shelves com­prise more than 1,000 gins and 250 Cham­pagne la­bels, in­clud­ing a Lon­don dry gin se­lec­tion that dates back to 1910. Over­whelmed? Don't be, as The AT­LAS Gin Team (Mas­ter of Gin Ja­son Wil­liams, Head Bar­tender Ro­man Foltán and Gin Re­searcher Jonathan Teo) and The AT­LAS Cham­pagne Team (Head Som­me­lier Ma­son Ng and Fam­ily Som­me­lier Jack Che­ung) are ready to as­sist you with the finest se­lec­tion. The ex­tra­or­di­nary gin and Cham­pagne col­lec­tions at AT­LAS are made up from con­tri­bu­tions from the house's many friends, dis­tillers and vint­ners from around the world, in ad­di­tion to out­stand­ing wines and whiskeys out of the Hwang fam­ily's – the brains be­hind Parkview Square and AT­LAS – cel­lar.

AT­LAS' drinks menu is as im­pres­sive as the venue it­self, pages after pages of the most po­tent spir­its and cock­tails in­spired by the Roar­ing Twen­ties. The bar even of­fers a vin­tage mar­tini se­lec­tion, where you can travel back in time by choos­ing a gin from the decade of your choice (from the 1920s to the 1990s) to be paired with a vin­tage ver­mouth. The vin­tage cock­tails sec­tion is also in­spir­ing, with tip­ples like The Floren­tine Negroni, con­cocted from 1920s Floren­tine Lon­don dry gin, 1930s Ital­ian sweet ver­mouth and vin­tage Cam­pari, or opt for The Deco White Lady for an or­ange kick to your dry gin. The best thing of all, all this great­ness is just the tip of the won­der­ful ice­berg wait­ing to be re­vealed.
