Que Pasa

Nestled among a row of pre-war Peranakan shophouses, Que Pasa is unquestionably one of Singapore’s best-known and longest-running wine bars.
7 Emerald Hill Rd., Singapore

The Overview

While its location off Orchard Road might scream tourist trap, it still makes a great setting for enjoying a glass or two: the outdoor patio is ideal for people-watching and, in a town where alcohol consumption can prove a horribly expensive habit, the prices are very reasonable.

The wine list displays an eclectic range, with champagnes included alongside a Chenin Blanc from India's Sula Vineyards and some acclaimed Spanish favorites such as the 2002 Castillo de Maetierra Quatro Pagos from Rioja and the 2004 Torres Celeste from Ribera del Duero.

While most patrons choose to sit alfresco, there's also an upstairs salon - accessible via a spiral staircase - that resembles a plush gentlemen's club (it's available for private parties).

Given its name, the food leans towards tapas; two regular crowd pleasers are the garlic prawns with dried chili and the Moroccan-style sausages. Another attraction: Que Pasa stays open until 2am on weekdays and 3am on weekends.
