On the second level of Regent Singapore sits a portal to 19th-century New York City, where ladies are decorated in pearls and gentlemen dressed to the nines. Under lowered lights, large leather armchairs and sofas gather around tables to offer enough privacy for a clandestine rendezvous. While Manhattan is known as one of the city's best cocktail bars, it also stocked over 200 bottles of American whiskey from Kentucky as well as lesser-known craft distillers. We're talking everything from entry-level Maker's Mark ($21) to big boys like the coveted Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 20 Years ($290). It's not just bourbons on the menu – there's Amrut Fusion ($25) from India, Kavalan Single Malt from Taiwan ($25) and classic Scotch for the purists as well.
For those of us who aren't Harvey Specter from Suits with a bottle of Macallan at our desks, turn to the city's top whisky bars for an after-work tipple. Whether you're a fan of smoky and peaty Scotch or sweet and oaky bourbons, these leather-chair saloons have all your dram dreams covered. Visit The Exciseman Whisky Bar for limited edition bottles of Scotch or stick with the ever-reliable La Maison Du Whisky, which stocks a wide variety of bottles from around the world. Whatever your pick, these bars are the places to be for some sipping and savouring.
