It’s not often that we talk about bars and even less often that we mention international bars, but when we find bars like Atlas, especially which have Gin as the heart of their drinks list, well, we just have to.
The bar can be found in the lobby of Parkview Square, an art deco icon in the heart of Singapore. The architecture and decor of this space impresses everyone who enters. Low lighting, frescos on the ceilings and the use of gold everywhere ensure this reaction. It is the majestic tower of Gin bottles that definitively makes it mark on the Atlas Bar, in a magnificent glass doored armoire bang in the centre of the lobby which grows from bar, and grows past the first floor walkway above.
There are more than 1000 Gin references available on their shelves which makes Atlas Bar the guardian of the biggest collection of Gin available to the public. The choice might be difficult, but you can always count on the help of Jason Williams and his bar team to help guide you in your choice of a classic Gin and Tonic with homemade tonic ($19) or one of the house’s exclusive cocktails.
To accompany your Gin there is a menu of light dishes and starters as well as more elaborate dishes for a traditional meal.
If you are planning to visit soon, plan your trip well. Atlas Bar opened in March and has been in fashion ever since. Fridays and Saturday are the busiest and the waiting lists are huge. If you want to book, do so at least a month in advance.
