While bars may not be open for dining-in during Phase 2, there’s no reason why you can’t recreate a buzzy evening at home with a cocktail delivery from Singapore’s most popular watering holes. They come with a medley of sweet and savoury bites, and of course, a copy of Vogue Singapore’s May issue starring Awkwafina as the cover star. So eat, drink, and be merry as we count down the days to Singapore opening up again.
This intimate speakeasy is known for its experimental takes on nibbles and tipples from diverse cultures, and their current menu—inspired by Peruvian cuisine—is no less bold. The Chilcano, a blend of Pisco Acholado, ginger beer, lime, gentian, cucumber, is a refreshing drink. It will cool your palate for the hearty French Dip Banh Mi, which oozes with onion jam and Asian spiced beef jus. If you’re looking for something to sweeten the mood, the Inca Cola, which combines botanical vodka, lemon verbena cream soda, and peach, is the perfect option, especially when paired with the fiery-hot Mala Hot Chicken Sandwich, served with Szechuan sauce, pickled pineapple, and purple cabbage slaw.
Available until 13 June, Junior the Pocket Bar’s Vogue Supports Local Menu offers a choice between two sets: 1 x Chilcano (250ml) and 1 x French Dip Banh Mi, or 1 x Inca Cola (250ml) and 1 x Mala Hot Chicken Sandwich.
Each set is priced at $45++ excluding delivery, and comes with a copy of Vogue Singapore’s May issue.
The pages of Ernest Hemingway’s books are littered with a list of drinks as extensive as that of any bar, so it is pretty much a given that this award-winning establishment inspired by the writer boasts some of Singapore’s most beloved cocktails. Must-tries include The Sun Also Rises, a concoction of applejack and gin with a local-inspired kick from pandan and curry leaves; A Moveable Feast, which has a combination of rotovap seawater and oyster leaves to make you feel like you’re tasting the sea breeze; and Garden of Eden, an intriguing mix of honeydew rye whiskey and goat milk bourbon, sweetened with caramelised cordial and orange bitter. These tipples go perfectly with the bar’s hearty burgers: the Classic Big Burger (a three-part beef patty topped with cheddar and garlic chili); the cheeky Prawnstar (a herb-spiced prawn patty spiced up with chimichurri); and the Ramly Styled Double Beef Special that contains just about everything.
Available until 11 June for delivery or pick-up at The Old Man Singapore, 55 Keong Saik Rd, #01-04, Singapore 089158, The Old Man’s Vogue Supports Local Menu offers 2 x Campari Small Monster Beer, a choice of 2 x Cocktail (250ml), and a choice of 2 x Burger.

As we wait with bated breath for global travel to return, you can still give your tastebuds a whirl around Europe with this set from Atlas. The Pêche Milk Punch, a blend of Scottish gin and fino sherry, carries a sweet edge from cranberry, peach, lime, and clarified milk. It provides the perfect counterpoint to the Arancini (fried Italian rice balls stuffed with salt cod and tomato) and the Charcuterie Board. Atlas’ version of charcuterie features delights like prosciutto, chili fennel salami, Italian sausage, alongside pickled shallots and turnips and a generous serving of sourdough bread. Rounding off this European gastronomic affair are buttery Madeleines, a classic French dessert served with homemade jam and cream.
Available until 19 June, Atlas’s Vogue Supports Local Menu comprises 2 x Pêche Milk Punch (100ml), 1 x Cod Arancini (4 pieces), 1 x Charcuterie Board, and 1 x Madeleines (8 pieces).
The bundle is priced at $68 nett (U.P. $118) excluding delivery, and comes with a copy of Vogue Singapore’s May issue.
Native Bar’s offerings put Asian flavours front and centre. The star of the show is the aromatic Pineapple Arrack, a cocktail so velvety it slides down your throat with ease. The drink uses Ceylon Arrack (a Sri Lankan spirit distilled from coconut flower sap) as the base, and explodes with tropical flavours from its infusion of Sri Lankan spices such as Ceylon cinnamon, cardamon, black pepper, cloves and pineapple skins. Sipping it feels like taking an indulgent bite of a decadent fruit cake. Leftover pulp from the cocktail then goes into creating a fermented fruit paste, which is used as a coating for cashew nuts in the highly addictive Shoyu Roasted Nuts. The Pineapple Arrack’s sweetness is also balanced out well by the spicy Kimchi Crackers, served with a edamame miso and tofu dip.
Available until 13 June, Native Bar’s Vogue Supports Local Menu comprises 1 x Pineapple Arrack (500ml), 1 x Shoyu Roasted Nuts, 1 x Kimchi Crackers.
The bundle is priced at $100 nett with free delivery, and comes with a copy of Vogue Singapore’s May issue.
A bar named after its address may seem unassuming, but 28 HongKong Street’s non-pretentiousness belies its long list of awards and high standing among Singapore’s libation lovers. Its plethora of bottled cocktails includes Bobby Burns, a smokey concoction of various blended malts, liqueurs, and vermouth. On the fruitier side is Harvest Moon, containing notes of apples and spiced pear, with traces of nuttiness and cinnamon. Another crowd favourite is the Coppertone No. 2, a piña colada-inspired twist on the classic Old Fashioned with dashes of pineapple, coconut, baking spice, and XO Rums. Soak up the drink with Hot Chicken Tenders (the heat comes from scorpion chili) or Chicarrones (fried pork belly served with harbanero salsa and pickled pineapple), then follow up those crunchy nibbles with pillowy-soft Apple Fritters to round off the night.
Available until 13 June, 28 HongKong Street’s Vogue Supports Local Menu comprises 1 x Cocktail of your choice (250ml), 1 x Hot Chicken Tenders or Chicarrones, and 1 x Apple Fritters.
The bundle is priced at $65++ excluding delivery, and comes with a copy of Vogue Singapore’s May issue.
