The St. Regis Singapore, Lobby Level, 29 Tanglin Road, Singapore

The Overview

Few bars in the city rival the sophisticated atmosphere of this establishment located in the St. Regis Singapore. Indeed, its invitingly swanky velvet interiors almost make it too easy to lounge about all day (or night), swilling cocktails. But the bar's real pièce de résistance is its extensive cocktail menu, which lists more than 50 concoctions. The weight-conscious can opt for the tequila-based Del Basil Bandita (clocking in at a mere 147 calories) or the antioxidant-rich Celadore made with pomegranate and vodka (198 calories). Seeking self-indulgence? Then throw your lot in with the warm Crêpe Suzette cocktail, composed of flambéed oranges, Grand Marnier and vodka, with a side-serving of mini crepês.

As the saying goes, when in Rome ... In the case of the Astor Bar, order a Chilli Padi Mary, a subtly spicy variation of the original Bloody Mary invented in the 1920's at the landmark St. Regis in New York City. Instead of the usual Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco, the local version comes mixed with bird's eye chili (also called chili padi or phrik khii nuu), ginger and lemongrass.
