A cocktail bar on the third floor of a shopping centre? Well, why not? Because once you find the joint (hint: look for a barbershop and an image the GOAT himself, Muhammad Ali), you will step into the Art Deco-inspired lounge and be transported to another time, another place. The three good friends who started Three X Co decided to partner with Asia’s first champion bartender, David Hans. A deft hand with local ingredients, Hans has concocted a creative menu that comprises classics with an Asian twist. Several of the signatures contain exotic ingredients, such as the Balik Pulau with Penang nutmeg juice, or the Eastern Poem, served in a beautifully decorated Chinese ceramic mug containing a mix of chrysanthemum-infused gin, Pei Pa Koa (a popular sore throat remedy), ginseng and topped up with yuzu tonic water. During the lockdown the team really ramped up their cocktail delivery game, too. This elegant speakeasy will win you over with its style, great drinks and friendly service. All in a mall.
