Jigger & Pony
165 Tanjong Pagar Road, Amara Singapore, #01-01
You won’t find liquid nitrogen and smoke guns at this charming bar, which goes about its business in a refreshingly old-school way. The distinguished dark wood counter is dedicated to classic and vintage cocktails from a killer Martini and soothing Moscow Mule to a Ramos Gin Fizz that would get nods of approval in New Orleans. Staff, headed by Jerrold Khoo – whose mantra is that customers must leave happier than when they came in – are warm and welcoming and there’s a buzzy atmosphere that’s convivial but never rowdy.
Jigger & Pony is also the winner of the Highest Climber Award 2019, sponsored by Mr. Black, climbing up 33 places in the list since 2018.
