Republic Bar

- Visit Republic Bar at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore at 7 Raffles Ave, Tel: 6434 5288

Taking up part of the Ritz-Carlton Singapore’s East Wing is a new food and beverage concept, Republic Bar. It looks to the ‘60s for inspiratio­n, which was a revolution­ary decade that inspired the bar’s style, music, and overall atmosphere.

There is much history behind the selection of spirits at Republic Bar, which showcases an extensive cocktail menu devoted to a narrative of historical anecdotes originatin­g from Singapore, the United Kingdom, USA, and Italy. What’s more, one can request for a cocktail containing a 1960-dated spirit (mainly rum, gin, and whisky), which is, no doubt, on a limited supply — there’s no restocking once the bottle is done, unless we go back in time.

The four countries that were chosen during this revolution­ary decade feature four main cocktails. They were inspired by significan­t moments in music, film, and art of the time, such as the UK menu featuring a vodka-inspired cocktail that transpired from James Bond’s famous line in You Only Live Twice. Made with Ki No Bi Kyoto Dry Gin, vodka, lillet blanc, and sakura vermouth, the drink is preferably stirred not shaken, as the hospitable bartending team would so gladly insist.
