Time Out Singapore - - In High Spirits -

Palm plants, rat­tan fur­ni­ture and hang­ing bird cages make this sec­ond-floor shop­house bar seem more like a friend’s liv­ing room – un­til you spy the racks of spir­its that line the wall. Given owner Chris Mor­ris’ Caribbean roots, Bago is de­voted to all man­ner of rums. There are dozens of la­bels of rum, rhum and ron (re­spec­tively, Bri­tish-, French- and Span­ish-style rums) that you can sip neat or shaken up in a cock­tail.

From typ­i­cal Bac­ardi ex­pres­sions to cult favourites like Di­plo­matico Reserva to lit­tle-known dis­til­leries such as New Grove in Mau­ri­tius, Bago isn’t kid­ding about its rum cre­den­tials. The bar even con­cocts its own rum in­fu­sions with herbs and spices. If you can’t de­cide which to go for, check out the menu’s Bago Build sec­tion: you pick your flavours and ‘mood’, and let the bar­tender mix up a tip­ple ($25) based on your pref­er­ences. Level 2, 2 Jiak Chuan Rd (6222 3130, face­­house). Ou­tram Park. Wed-Sat 6pm-mid­night.
