A simple looking joint that serves far from simple drinks, Native has been a trailblazer for all its four years in existence, picking up the Ketel One Sustainable Bar Award at The World’s 50 Best Bars 2019 along the way. The Singapore destination, led by the visionary Vijay Mudaliar, takes its inspiration from the local and regional landscape, serving cocktails with foraged ingredients from jasmine blossom to turmeric leaves and sourcing its spirits from Asia only.

Its boundary-pushing approach, which extends to a policy of no fresh citrus to avoid waste, also results in highly original, far-from-classical cocktails. The vibe is effortlessly relaxed with apron-clad staff at the stripped-back upper-floor space happy to chat with customers about the exotic ingredients and drinks-making process.
