The Lowdown on Singapore Cocktail Week 2015: Where to Go, What to Drink, and A Bartender’s Last Stint

If you haven’t heard the news, the inaugural Singapore Cocktail Week 2015 (#SGCocktailWeek) will take place from March 7 to 14. For the first time ever, an eight-day showcase will take place across 30 of Singapore’s best cocktail bars in an exciting festival to celebrate the local cocktail scene and highlight the nation’s growing pool of bartending talents.

10 of the world’s best bartenders, including bartender extraordinaire Igor Hadzismajlovic and Steve Schneider of New York City’s Employee’s Only (#5 on World’s 50 Best Bars 2014), as well as Roman Foltan from London’s Artesian (#1 on World’s 50 Best Bars 2012-2014) will be gracing our shores for an exclusive stint during Singapore Cocktail Week. (We’ve got insider information that Roman Foltan will be at Tippling Club, so be sure to make plans.) Joining the star-studded cast will be Dean Callan, Global Brand Ambassador to the amazing Monkey Shoulder Scotch Whisky (can we get an ‘amen’?).

Cocktail aficionados can look forward to cocktail workshops and tours, pop-up bars and a selection of five cocktails at each of the 30 participating bars, all priced at $14 each, with purchase of the festival wristband. Wristbands are available at $38 (for a set of eight wristbands; one for each day of Singapore Cocktail Week), while the group bundle ($190) entitles to get one free set with every five purchased.

With a list of 150 cocktails across 30 of Singapore’s best bars, it’ll be a hard decision to make, so here’s the lowdown on where to go and what to drink (because we’ll be short of one rock star bartender by the end of Singapore Cocktail Week).
