Tess Bar & Kitchen
What to imbibe: Clergyman Martini, Queen of the Club, Old Saint
There is something for everyone at Tess Bar, and this intimate drinking hole opposite the iconic Raffles Hotel is packed most evenings for good reason. The young, award-winning talent that reign supreme behind the bar and kitchen serves up inventive, delicious fare with a side of raucous fun. The appealing drinks list features a wide range of single malt whiskies, gins, rums, beer and boutique wines, as well as signature cocktails by 2016 Diageo World Class Singapore champion Boo Jing Heng. Known for taking a flexible approach to bartending, both in terms of technique and ingredients, he focuses on creating classics with a contemporary twist, experimenting with different flavour combinations by way of an expansive array of freewheeling inspirations. As you watch the first trickles of happy hour patrons give way to all-night revellers, you can be sure Tess Bar & Kitchen will be your first and last spot of the night.
