Things in the dark are not necessarily ominous. Take the floor beneath 12 Ann Siang Road, where an American-style cocktail bar with hip-hop, and tunes never to be found on any popular top 10 chart, pour out from the speakers: the name is Catchfly and it’s a treasure waiting to be uncovered. Named for the nocturnal flower that blooms after dark, Catchfly’s head honcho is Liam Baer whose mixology mastery is evident in drinks like The Honey Badger, which is an in-house rosemary-infused bourbon blended with yellow chartreuse, ginger, lemon and honey. (Memetic Honey Badger’s sass isn’t included.) Or Salad Days, which is tomatoes sous vide in gin for two hours before being layered with Gentian liquor, Bianco Vermouth and a dash of pink peppercorn and smoked olive oil. If you’re a lightweight like I am, Baer also whips up shim drinks like the 30/30, which is an elderflower liqueur mixed with passionfruit, Bianco Vermouth, lemongrass and kaffir lime. All these and bar food (kimchi beef chilli, corn chips and more) are set in an intimate space of exposed brick and plush armchairs—Catchfly is that beauty in the basement.
