Idlewild

Jul 2, 2019

Fly high in this live-music bar decorated with golden-age-of-travel paraphernalia, including a cabinet of curiosities featuring rare and exotic spirits (go ahead, ask for a tasting shot). Bartender Andy Griffiths has a few kitchen shenanigans up his sleeve. Think sous-vide, reductions, carbonations and original syrups, all of which translate to heady blends such as the Sugarloaf, where pineapple rum, cognac, house-fermented pineapple skin tepache, tamarind, lime and palm sugar are mixed together and the final result garnished with a mini taco rolled from pineapple skin and pickled watermelon rind. Whew. idlewild.sg; cocktails from S$22.
