Encompassing a first-of-its-kind concept where the menu is inspired by five key districts in Singapore – Orchard, Chinatown, Little India, Boat Quay and Marina Bay – Origin Bar is truly a journey for the senses. A large lounge setting and handcrafted drinks all around, it’s the perfect place for those in search for something adventurous.
If you love your beers, then this really should be on your must-go list. Beer Basket houses over 80 – yes, 80 – different types of beers from around the world. From artisanal options like oatmeal stout to more household names like Stella Artois., there’s something to suit everyone’s discerning palate.
