The Singapore outpost of The Old Man, which picked up the London Essence Best New Opening Award last year, is already well established as a favourite in the city’s ever-competitive bar scene. The unique I-shaped open bar concept is front and centre and perfect for mingling, while a lounge at the back is ideal for larger groups. The drinks, each named after one of Ernest Hemingway’s novels, mirror the menu of the original Hong Kong iteration with Islands in the Stream, a clarified grapefruit G&T riff, a firm favourite. Similarly, the likes of The Torrents of Spring (mezcal, bourbon, Campari) and Death in the Afternoon (absinthe, prosecco, coco-pandan yogurt) are gaining fans by the day. Whichever you choose, it will be delivered in a convivial setting under the watchful eyes of founder Andrew Yap and Indian-born bar manager Kaustubh Singh Negi.
