Looking for the best martinis in town? Then head towards the bar that’s named after the tipple: Martini Bar. A firm favourite in the city’s vibrant bar scene, the cocktail joint has shed its skin for a refreshed look and vibe, while retaining vestiges of its glory days as one of the first bars in the area.
With the relaunch, there are seven new martinis for the discerning cocktail lover to sample. Think creative concoctions such as gummy bear, apple truffle and blueberry citrus – or you could always turn to the classic lychee martini, an institution at this glass-enclosed dome tucked away in the heart of the bustling city at Orchard.
To celebrate its revamp, Martini Bar welcomes regulars and curious newcomers during “mezzatime”, which happens from 5pm to 9pm daily. During these four hours, all martinis, handcrafted gin and tonics, wines and house pours are priced at $14 per glass. And fret not if you come after 9pm, drinks are still affordably priced from $18 per glass.
While the martini is the focus at this specialty cocktail bar, the food is just as good. Pair your tipple with a delicious array of bar snacks: the addictive fried chicken wings served with Thai-style dipping sauce are a must, and new creations such as grilled Padrón peppers and premium slices wagyu bresaola among other light bites are also available.
So sink back on plush sofas and enjoy a bit of nostalgia with antique toys and bar books lined up on impressive bar shelves. Martini Bar is the address to unwind over a fine selection of drinks and bites.
