The Singapore drinks scene has never been more vibrant

It feels like we say this every year, but we only say it because it’s true: There’s never been a better time to be a lover of good drinks in Singapore.

Our cocktail bars now rank among the best in the world, with Manhattan reaching the dizzying heights of third on the World’s 50 Best Bars list in 2018. Led by the likes of Native, more establishments are mixing drinks with regional flavors and ingredients, a trend that can be seen surfacing in Singaporean craft beer as well.

Speaking of which, we now have more microbreweries in Singapore than ever, and two intrepid distilleries have emerged to produce the first Singaporean gins: Tanglin and Brass Lion.

Regardless of where you look – specialty spirits bars, craft beer bars, alcohol events, wine bars, sake bars, bottle shops, gastrobars, clubs and even dive bars – Singapore’s drinks scene is thriving, and it’s the perfect time to recognize the driving forces behind this golden age.

In our 2019 edition of SG Magazine Nightlife, you’ll find 100 of Singapore’s best bars, clubs, breweries, shops and events as selected by our team and you, our readers. We hope you’ll have as much fun using it as we had putting it together.
