The Whiskey Library
Time Out says
You’ll find some of the finest drams at The Whiskey Library. The bar, located within the opulent The Vagabond Club, is home to an extensive collection of whiskeys – some 1,000 different bottles sourced from around the globe. Everything, from the ultra-rare to the award-winning, can be found along the shelves of this sexy watering hole.
The space itself speaks volume about the bar’s dedication to the water of life. It is located within The Vagabond Club, an opulent boutique hotel designed by renowned French architect Jacques Garcia. And with his signature Parisian-chic aesthetic comes a place that oozes sophistication and old-world glamour. You’ll see it almost immediately when you step into The Whiskey Library: be greeted by golden elephant sculptures before settling down under a canopy of shimmering leaves at the bar. Red velvet banquettes and a stunning collection of art help add to the sexy allure.
It all helps set the mood to enjoy a pour, or two, of your favourite Scotch. Drink it neat – the impressive selection comprises mostly limited-edition single-cask bottles – or have a bartender shake things up into an old fashioned instead. Some signature cocktails include the Spice Road ($23), made with Chivas Regal 12-Year-Old, crème de cacao, and five different spices that allude to Singapore’s trading past; and the Charlie Chaplin Style ($20) which is based on a 1920s recipe from New York City’s Waldorf Astoria. Olmeca Reposado tequila comes brightened with pineapple juice, lime, and tamarind-vanilla syrup.
Sip and savour on light bites of truffled brie toast ($19) and deep-fried macaroni and cheese balls ($20) – all while grooving to some silky jazz tunes. The Whiskey Library is open to all who wish to get acquainted with the spirit – but for the true enthusiasts, inquire about the Library’s membership program, which gives you access to one of the 80 whiskey lockers, special bottle prices, and reserved seating at its regular events.
