Known for its award-winning team of sommeliers and a 5,000-label-strong wine cellar, London's 67 Pall Mall is opening its first international outlet right here in Singapore. Housed in a penthouse along Orchard Road, the private members-only club is set to open its doors in September next year.
Priding itself as the place to be for oenophiles, 67 Pall Mall houses one of the largest collections of fine wines in the world from 42 countries. Its founder, Grant Ashton, launched the London space in 2015 in response to excessive mark-ups on wine he noticed at many of London’s restaurants. “We are thrilled to be able to bring people together with a shared passion for fine wine,” he says. “Singapore is a sophisticated market with an increasing appetite and appreciation for wine, making it the natural choice in our first step to international expansion.
