GIN

Time Out Singapore - - In High Spirits -

ATLAS

At this art deco-in­spired bar that Jay Gatsby him­self would’ve been proud to pa­tro­n­ise, or­der­ing a sim­ple G&T won’t do. There are up­wards of 1,000 bot­tles of gin, housed in a three­storey-high tower, that have been sourced from more than 40 coun­tries – so if you’ve ever wanted to sam­ple a gin from Greece, Es­to­nia or Moldova, here’s your chance. Most of these are rare or vin­tage spir­its, too, with prices to match: a mar­tini made with gin from the 1910s, for in­stance, will set you back $250. Yes, for cock­tail.

But pull your­self back to Earth and scan through the leather-bound menu for more af­ford­able tip­ple. A clas­sic G&T is just $19, while The ATLAS Mar­tini – both drinks use Lon­don Dry Gin – runs for $24. There’s even a short se­lec­tion of mock­tails if you’re not keen on putting on those rose-coloured glasses of life.

Parkview Square, 600 North Bridge Rd (6396 4466, at­las­bar.sg). Bugis. Mon-Thu 10-1am; Fri 10-2am; Sat 3pm-2am.
