Regent Singapore, 1 Cuscaden Road, Singapore 249715
This seriously sexy space at the Regent Hotel in Singapore almost single-handedly made the city state’s hotel bars cool again. The low-lit New York vibe, stellar drinks based on classics and, above all, fantastic hospitality have put Manhattan repeatedly at the top of several awards lists and in people’s minds. Recently appointed head bartender Sophia Kang and her team continue to please the crowds, whether during a normal service or the boozy, adults-only Sunday brunch. Manhattan also has the world’s first in-hotel rickhouse – filled with barrel-aged cocktails by its own team as well as guest drinks luminaries – and an inspiring ingredients room, which also houses an impressive collection of vintage American whiskies. There are several private rooms off the main bar area for your celebration needs.
