Specialty cocktail bar Employees Only is an exceptionally popular bar in The Big Apple. The nightlife destination has been around for more than a decade—a testimony that it has long since established a special place in the hearts of New Yorkers.
The World’s 50 Best Bars has reconfirmed its status in the competitive industry by ranking it fourth on earth.
Employees Only opened its first international outpost in Singapore’s Amoy Street and the opening sees co-founder Igor Hadzismajlovic, principal bartender Steve Schneider and executive chef Julia Jaksic, moving from The Empire State to our sunny island.

We went on a scout for some of the chic bars in Singapore. ‘Instagram-worthy’ is we’d like to call them, albeit overused.
Here are 10 Instagram-Worthy Bars in Singapore for a night of bar-hopping adventures.
Strategically located in the heart of Orchard is Bar Canary, an open-air bar perched on the fourth level of 5-star Grand Park Orchard Hotel. When daylight wanes away, mesmerising fairy lights illuminate the alfresco bar – one of Orchard Road’s best kept secrets and an absolute must-visit.
What makes Bar Canary even more enticing is its current irresistible “Beat the Clock” deal.
Indulge in either a bucket of eight bottles of beer or a bottle of red/white wine and four signature cocktails of your choice at $60++ at 6pm, $70++ at 7pm, $80++ at 8pm and $90++ at 9pm. Needless to say, the early bird catches the worm!
You would never expect to find a swanky open-concept bar in Alexandra. This new hangout is called Aqua Luna, located on the 7th storey of Park Hotel Alexandra, offering an alternative view of the beautiful Queenstown precinct. The stylish alfresco bar is parked right beside the 25-metre infinity swimming pool, and boasts an exciting gourmet menu of bar nosh and exotic cocktails.
But more than its tranquil vibes and interesting variety of tantalising cocktails, Aqua Luna is a stunner and the perfect venue for post-work drinks with colleagues and/or a great night out with your beloved other half. Upon stepping to the outdoors of the pool level of the property, we were amazed and in complete disbelief. The circular rooftop bar was dimly lit and set against the evening skies, candy floss coloured post-sunset skies welcomed us, and our moods were instantly lifted; how can a so-called neighbourhood bar be so sexy?
We can just hear all of you who are sick and tired of the CBD’s overly crammed bars; it is time to make your way down to Aqua Luna, this all new tranquil oasis that we have been to several times now, and are completely in love with.
From now till 13 November 2015, readers of ladyironchef can get an exclusive 50% off the second drink at Aqua Luna (more details at the end of the post). So grab a cocktail and some light bites, watch the sunset from an alternative venue, kick back and enjoy an evening of being away from the madness in town. You deserve this break.
The number of cocktail bars in Singapore has been increasing stealthily to meet the growing community of discerning drinkers. These bars are more often than not a hole-in-the-wall and you probably would have overlooked them in the day. An unassuming camouflaged entrance seems almost deliberate to ward off those who did not put in the extra effort to scout for the gateway to divine cocktails.
While classics such as Old Fashioned and Manhattan have been on every bar’s menu since our granny’s times, a new wave of Asian-fusion exotic selections, such as Kuvo’s prawn noodles cocktail and Bitters & Love’s crowd-pleaser kaya toast cocktail, has entered Singapore’s burgeoning bar scene in the recent years.
These unorthodox concoctions are the brainchild of Singaporean bartenders who have not forgotten their roots. The unique alcoholic beverages truly deserve extra commendation for overcoming the near-impossible uphill task of integrating local flavours into delicious cocktails.
