Time Out says

Hidden in plain sight is a new speakeasy that seeks to entrance (literally). Located on the second level of a shophouse of the ever-bustling Tanjong Pagar Road, one does not simply stumble upon the space but rather, uncover it in search of tasty libations – sorta feels like 1920 prohibition era.

Bewitching as is, the darkly ambient space feels modern contemporary with subtle industrial elements to contrast as you’d notice copper-clad ornaments fused with modern architecture references. Flexing a creative range of contemporary Japanese-European inspired cuisine and its striking presentations, inimitable dishes such as the vibrant Entrance Ceviche, soul-comforting Meatballs, and sweet savoury Lobster Angel Hair Pasta are must orders.

This cosy nook has a penchant for theatrics as guests are treated to a multi-sensory experience, all in one glass. Whiskey lovers will be thrilled by the French 22, a mix of Laphroaig whiskey, Chambord, Frangelico hazelnut and finished with a show-stopping release of aromatic smoke. Fans of green tea would find the Matcha Trance an appeasing attempt with its build of ceremonial-grade Uji matcha, sake, yuzu and fresh cream. The result is a dainty looking tipple that drinks bright and refreshing but with a twist of umami. 

TRY THIS If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, definitely get the Mango Volcan. Flexing a complex build of Espolon Blanco Tequila, mango nectar, grapefruit, and citrus, every sip is a myriad of flavours ranging from piquant spice, vibrant citrusy notes and a touch of salinity. Be warned, this is not a tipple for the faint-hearted.

All in all, Entrance promises a multi-sensory gastronomic journey to entice and encapsulate all senses. Expect delicious yet visually stunning cocktails and artfully plated dishes that seeks to please both your palate and your Instagram followers.
