Chris Hp: “Eh Bro, you free this Sunday anot?”

Last week, our ex-colleague Chris shot us the text above. He is currently the bar manager at OLA Bar, a bar and restaurant located along the sandy beaches of Sentosa. Even though it was a Sunday, it was also a great opportunity to work alongside him again, with the added plus of being in a new bar with things to learn so we said yes!

Singapore Cocktail Festival 2017 – Guest shift from Alice Bar

안녕하세요! As part of Singapore Cocktail Festival, we had the opportunity to observe two amazeballs bartenders from Alice Bar, Asia’s 11th Best Bar 2016.

Flying in from Seoul, they did a two hour guest shift, delighting our customers with two of their signature drinks and providing us with the opportunity to observe their technique and style, up close and personal. You can see them in action here.

As mentioned in our About section, we look forward to sharing our recipes with you. And what better place to give them a whirl then in the comfort of your own home?

While we may work in a bar, most of the research and experiments that we do are conducted in a home bar with a pretty basic setup. Check out the different tabs for suggestions on basic bar ware, ingredients and spirits that we feel every home bar should have.
