Named after the famous pickled onion Martini, Gibson is housed in an intimate Singaporean shop house and has become a perennial favourite thanks to an innovative approach to craft cocktails. Japanese-born head bartender Gento Tarigia – always as impeccably turned out as his drinks – oversees a menu of classics with plenty of regional flair. Part of the highly successful Jigger & Pony Group, everything at Gibson is inspired by the team’s varied backgrounds and travels, from its Silk Road (coffee vodka, port, papaya, cold brew cacao) to the Chinese dessert-inspired Breaking the Twig (Calvados infused with osmanthus, bourbon, apple) .
