There is always a good reason to wind down at a bar with your mates over a tipple and great food after a long day at work; you earned it.
As part of Martini’s initiative to celebrate time and to appreciate it with your loved ones, they will be collaborating with a number of bars, bistros and restaurants across the city this racing season, dishing out delectable eats paired with Martini’s refreshing tipples to honour the golden hour. Together, enjoy life and celebrate great moments with your loved ones over a Martini or two!
During the golden hours—typically anytime between 4pm to 8pm—wind down at any one of these locations across the city and allow the harmony between food and drink provide you with an out-of-this-world dining experience.
Here is our guide on 7 cool spots in Singapore for sunset hour Martini drinks after work. Thank you for reminding us that life is wonderful, Martini.
While we’re best known for our rags-to-riches story, from a sleepy fishing village to a cosmopolitan metropolis today, one thing’s for sure: we’ve grown so much, it’s definitely hard to avoid the crowds in Singapore today. Honestly. Just ask any resident here, and they’ll attest to that. So where do you go when you’re looking to escape the city bustle, or are simply seeking pocket-friendly options for a quiet retreat? These places have the answers:
Beer? Checked. Meats and sausages? Checked. Pasta and local delights? Checked. Wines of The World? Checked.
That is Cook & Brew at The Westin Singapore for you. The comforting gastrobar is a star addition to our local dining scene, one that has earned our loyalty with its extensive menu and addictive relaxing vibe. The cosy interior furnished with oak browns and wood elements is very much like a typical German living room where you can enjoy your comfort food and chill out with friends and families. Over good beers too, of course. There is a whopping 104 beers from 18 countries to choose from!
Unpretentious. Fuss-free. Chic. Sexy.
We love the huge space so much, though not as much as the chef who has recently put together a spanking new menu that leaves us mind-boggled and spoilt for choice so completely. And how can we not shout about the unobstructed view of the Marina, again?
Cook & Brew at The Westin Singapore www.facebook.com/thewestinsingapore opens for the whole day, making it the perfect location for all occasions. Drop by during your lunch hour for a casual and relaxing meal, or pop by in the middle of afternoon to grab a beer and some light snacks. In the evening, it is a lovely place to have some pre-dinner drinks with your colleagues or friends before treating yourself to a well-deserved dinner.
Here, we share with you our picks from Cook & Brew’s current repertoire, and please do not leave without trying the German Platter. Yes, we mean it.
Like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it is always satisfying to discover new places where you can get a good drink before dinner. Even better when the pot of gold is conveniently located in the heart of Orchard Road.
The martini bar at mezza9 is one of those secret hideouts that only folks in the know head to. There are a few reasons why it has remained hugely popular, and many more reasons why we think you will love it too. First, it is a gorgeous spot to have a drink after work. The glass-enclosed bar on the mezzanine level of Grand Hyatt Singapore provides a view of Scotts Road. Second, with over 30 delicious speciality concocted martinis, it is a shrine that martini lovers can worship.
Third – and the main reason for this post – martini bar at mezza9 is having a more than fantastic promotion that everyone should know about. From Monday to Wednesday 6pm to 9pm, enjoy 9 different martinis at S$9++ each! The usual prices for martinis here range from S$19 to S$28, so the S$9++ offer is really a deal of a century.
From Almond Martini, to Blueberry Citrus made with Effen vodka, blueberry liqueur, and grapefruit juice – each of the nine martini reveals a different statement about you.
Let’s just say you must go to the martini bar to try one of the nine martinis post dinner at mezza9, else, for the lack of better descriptions, you’d never know what you are missing out. Which martini best describes you? Try it and let us know!

The Book Cafe is not a place that is known for food. Neither does it serve exceptional coffee. What sets them apart, however, is their cosy and relaxing atmosphere. It is a great chill-out place where you can sit down, have a cup of coffee, read a book, and watch the world go by. Besides having a wide selection of magazines and newspapers, the cafe also has plenty of power-points for folks who are on their laptops. Moreover, the food is relatively inexpensive. They serve simple food such as pasta, sandwiches, soup, sandwiches, desserts and all-day breakfast.

Many of my friends are big fans of The Coastal Settlement (TCS). Some of them like it because of the lovely atmosphere, while others love it because it is a hidden gem in the east of Singapore.
I went there during a weekend, and it was indeed the perfect kind of place to go to unwind with friends.
Note: Smitten Coffee & Tea Bar is now closed.
Many indie cafes have been making a name for themselves in the local scene, and I think it is a good thing because more and more people are starting to appreciate coffee.
Smitten Coffee & Tea Bar at Robertson Quay is one of those that has been gaining loyal followers for serving good coffee. If you are going on a cafe hopping adventure, you should definitely include it in your list.
