Cook & Brew Gastrobar The Westin Singapore

Cook & Brew

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.

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.

[Closed] Beer Market Singapore – Good food and Good Beer

Beer Market

Football and ice cold beer come hand in hand. We all need night outs with our pals, and we really would not miss watching the latest football matches. Times like these, we turn to our regular haunts for reliable familiarity and comfort, where we can get our favourite beers and cheers to great goals.

And what if we tell you – on top of all these, there is a haven where you can fill your tummies with awesome food with even more awesome beers, too? Lately, Beer Market has sprung up to being one of our favourite chill-out spots, and with this post, we will make you forget what a typical pub means, and have you rethink and redefine what enjoyment really is with quality F&B.

Beer Market Clarke Quay

Strategically located at the bustling Clarke Quay, Beer Market is not your ordinary pub. Or bar. Or whatever Singaporeans deem as a place only for drinks. Beer Market is an institution, a place that is committed to offering a myriad of beers – both classic favourites and limited rare brands – and a menu so comprehensive, and even more appealing than the beer options! Some of the dishes like chicken rice pizza, squid ink fried rice, and salted egg yolk seafood pizza are enticing enough to make us go back again and again.

Happy Hour at Gravity Bar, Carlton Hotel Singapore

Gravity Bar Cocktails

What constitutes to a good bar? Great drinks, tasty snacks, a hideout where you can relax after a long day at work, and ideally, it should play nice music that make you feel at home. Gravity Bar at Carlton Hotel Singapore, one of our favourite secret hideouts in town, is one such place.

With many tempting promotions, chill at Gravity Bar and celebrate Happy Hour with drinks from opening to 8 pm daily. Selected house wines are available at attractive prices, including draft beer from $8++ per half pint, house pours, martinis and cocktails from $10++ (U.P. S$14 – S$16). If not, go for a sparkling wine cocktail party – it is only S$15++ per glass (U.P. S$22++). Just typing these make me crave for a booze and I am thankful Gravity Bar is so centrally located and convenient.

And what marries good drink best? Better snacks, of course! Munch on mini portobello mushrooms and the classic local chicken wings marinated with prawn paste. Cheese lovers will fall head over heels in love with the crispy nachos that is served with three types of cheeses. Another favourite is the cheese fries that is generously sprinkled with shredded seaweed.
