Cocktail guest shifts are coming back, a sure sign that things returning to normal for Singapore’s dining and nightlife scene after a beleaguering two pandemic years. One of the latest to be announced is Bangkok Tipples at the Long Bar; the iconic Raffles Singapore watering hole will be hosting bartenders from four Bangkok-based bars for a short stint in collaboration with Perrier.

From now till 3 July 2022, level three of Long Bar will play host to bars award-winning cocktail bars Tropic City and Vesper (No.17 and No.19 at the recently-announced Asia’s 50 Bars 2022), as well as Lennon’s and Mahaniyom. Popular up-and-coming neon-lit Tropic City is best known for its tropical cocktails, while most cocktail hounds will be familiar with chic European-inspired Vesper, which has been regularly winning awards since it opened in 2014. On the other hand there’s Mahaniyom, one of the newest bars to open in Bangkok that has a focus on sustainability. Then there’s Lennon’s, an upscale speakeasy located in Rosewood Bangkok.
