Rooftop Bars That Will Get You High On Brews And Views

Smoke & Mirrors

Another bar on the rooftop of National Gallery Singapore, Smoke & Mirrors pays homage to the artwork in the galleries below by serving up Asian-flavoured and reinterpreted classic cocktail inspired by specific pieces featured in the museum. But if there’s only one drink to try, make it the Tiger Blood Daisy ($22). Inspired by the exotic flavours of Southeast Asia, this cocktail contains tequila, homemade sour plum syrup, and citrus plus a nice touch of spiciness and fizz from ginger beer. Not just for dramatic presentation, dehydrated lime containing overproof rum is ignited to provide an invigorating aroma to complement the refreshing citrus taste of the cocktail. Seats on the deck facing the Marina Bay skyline are highly sought after, so it’ll be wise to make reservations.
