Like many big cities around the world, there’s no lack of respectable cocktail bars delivering world-class drinks here. But why sip on a Manhattan when you’re in sunny Singapore?
Hopscotch: Set up by a group of passionate local bartenders, taste the island’s heritage that’s inspired by memories of growing up here. Highlights on the menu include Arab Street, evoking the famed avenue with saffron rosewater and cherry shisha smoke; and Kopi Stout, which involves local kopitiam coffee and a Guinness reduction.
