Sin­gle-fo­cus bars for the dis­cern­ing drinker

The Bird South­ern Ta­ble and Bar

Time Out Singapore - - Inside - #B1-07 & #01-82 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 1 Bayfront Ave (6688 9959, bit.ly/the­bird­south­ernta­blesg). Bayfront. Mon-Fri 11am-11pm; Sat & Sun 10am-11pm.

The hyped-up im­port from the US gid­dies up to Marina Bay Sands with a menu of hearty South­ern clas­sics and a gold mine of bour­bon and rye. Go for a dram of Blan­ton’s Straight from the Bar­rel ($30) to sam­ple how bour­bon should taste like, then or­der a cock­tail like the Water­melon Sling ($24) – Death’s Door white whiskey, Aperol, rose­mary and water­melon juice – to go with your fried chicken ($35-$45). Bet­ter yet, spring for a mea­sure of rare bour­bon if your wal­let’s up for it: the AH Hirsch 1974 16-year Re­serve clocks in at a cool $600 a shot.
