Aperol kicks off #JoinTheJoy, a series of bar crawls on the first two weekends of July that takes you on a spritz-soaked exploration of four districts in Singapore.
Aperitivo hour may just have taken on new meaning with Aperol. The Italian bitter apéritif has debuted in Singapore #JoinTheJoy, what looks to be a fun series of bar crawls that will evoke the Italian aperitivo drinking tradition… and involve snacking on bar bites and plenty of Aperol Spritz.
Taking place on the first two weekends this July – 2nd and 3rd, and 9th and 10th of July, to be exact – #JoinTheJoy looks to take fun-seeking tipplers on either a self-guided bar crawl or a guided aperitivo experience to four locales in Singapore, namely Bayfront, Chinatown, East Coast, and Riverwalk.
Not familiar with the Aperol Spritz? This is actually a very simple, yet absolutely refreshing, iconic cocktail that is typically made with Aperol, Prosecco, and then topped with soda and garnished with a slice of orange. The Prosecco not only lengthens the drink, but accentuates the complex herbal notes of the Aperol. First invented in 1919 in Veneto – because, you know, the home of Prosecco – the Aperol Spritz sparks joy, especially on warm, humid evenings.
Like July weekends in Singapore. So if it sounds like you need some Aperol Spritz this summer season, #JoinTheJoy will take you on a jaunt around Singapore to sample a plethora of these joyful cocktails. Ticket holders get to choose their preferred map of five bars to hop around for their Aperol Spritzes.
For the self-guided crawls, the venues are:
- Da Paolo Gastronomia, Marina Bay Sands
- Bayside Drinks & Eats
- Picotin Waterboat House
- Town Restaurant at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore
- The Guild
- Pocket Rocket
- Alegria Singapore
- Potato Head Singapore
- Lime House Caribbean East Coast
- Little Italy

All passes are priced at S$72.50 each with five Aperol Spritz to redeem across venues.
Or if you prefer a guided tour, there’s an option for a guided aperitivo experience. For the price of S$132 for two persons, there’s a guided session for the Bayfront or Riverwalk routes on Saturday 2 July 2022 from 3pm to 6.30pm, otherwise there’s the Chinatown or East Coast ones on Saturday 9 July from from 3pm to 6.30pm to choose from. Each guided crawl comes with a selection of snacks in a myriad of cuisine styles that pair with your sips.
If you’re the partying kind? There’s an opening sundown party that takes place on Thursday 30 June 2022 from 6pm to 9.30pm at Aperol Spritz Garden in Hotel Indigo, Katong. Here’s where you – after a complimentary first drink – you’ll indulge in an all-night happy hour of cocktails and spritz, drinking games, and a live DJ set.
