On the Menu: Signature cocktails include the bar’s take on Irish coffee featuring Jameson Irish whisky, Martell VSOP, tensaito, coffee and cold cream and the Tarling, a concoction of pandan gin, white port, baking spice, clarified orange juice and coconut juice. An array of upscale bar bites complements the drinks.

Meet the Mixologist: The mastermind behind the menu is mixologist John Nugent, who you might recognize from the now-closed Lily & Bloom — this is his first independent venture.
