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.
