Manhattan Bar's Stellar Collaborations This October

Just as The World's 50 Best Bars ceremony will take place in Singapore on 17th October you're in for a treat for some top-notch cocktail experiences. Manhattan at Conrad Singapore Orchard is gearing up for the week and would be hosting three standout collaborations from 15 to 22 October 2023. 

 

 

Ranked 21st on Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2023 and 33rd in The World’s 50 Best Bars 2022, Manhattan at Conrad Singapore Orchard is a grand hotel bar inspired by the 19th century’s Golden Age of cocktails and fine drinking. Delivering on its name with a glamorous space reminiscent of old New York, it promises craft bartending that pay homage to classic and forgotten cocktails from history, and a collection of premium spirits.

Here's what's on the menu at Manhattan this month:

15 October 2023: Dark Spirits Brunch x Botanist Bar

 

Manhattan and Vancouver's Botanist Bar are teaming up for a special edition of Manhattan’s Sunday Cocktail Brunch. Think of it as a nod to New York City's vibrant brunch culture. You'll get to enjoy a lavish buffet, free-flowing cocktails in collaboration with brands like Matusalem, Torres, Remy Martin, and Perrier. This includes a gourmet delicatessen counter, freshly shucked oysters, succulent seafood, and a variety of desserts.

 

 

Botanist Bar's Grant Sceney will be showcasing his mixology skills. And yes, there will be custom Bloody Marys, boozy milkshakes, and highballs from Manhattan's cocktail trolleys.

Time: 12 pm to 3 pm

Price: S$158++ per person for three hours of free-flow food and cocktails.

18 October 2023: Friends of Manhattan with DUKES Bar

 

DUKES Bar, a London legend, and the favourite haunt of James Bond author Ian Fleming, is bringing its iconic Martini to Manhattan. If you're a fan of a well-made Martini, this is your chance to experience it from one of the best in the business.

Bar Manager Alessandro Palazzi, often referred to as the "maestro of the martini", will be there to present his signature Martini creations with The Botanist Gin.

Time: 5 pm to 10 pm

Price: Martinis at $28++ each.

And here's a little bonus: Manhattan is extending its operating hours for the entire week from 16 to 22 October 2023. They'll be open till 1 am every day, so there's more time to enjoy and celebrate.
