Award-winning cocktail bar Nutmeg & Clove celebrates its 10th anniversary this May with Nutmeg Cocktail Fiesta, featuring five days of cocktails from headline bartenders from around the world.

Nutmeg & Clove throws some kick-ass parties. We should know. We’ve followed the award-winning Singapore-themed cocktail bar since its earliest days, and over the years their anniversary parties – such as their 5th anniversary ‘Family Homecoming’ and 7th anniversary ‘Here in Spirit’ during the COVID era – have attained legendary status. Then there’s the guest shift galore that celebrated its eighth year, featuring guest bartenders from Australia, Thailand, and even Mexico.

In particular, its homecoming guest shifts for former bartenders and bar managers – running from Bannie Kang (now with her own bar Side Door), Adam Bursik (now bar manager at Origin Bar) – show the incredible impact and influence this little local cocktail bar has had on Singapore’s cocktail scene.

And beyond.

Ten years on, Nutmeg & Clove will mark this incredible anniversary milestone with the mother of all parties this May that is likely be spoken of fondly for years to come. Nutmeg Cocktail Fiesta – running from 26 to 30 May – is set to be its biggest birthday party ever, with ten renowned bartenders from around the world mixing up their best signature cocktails across five different themed nights, culminating in a reunion guest shift featuring the original Nutmeg & Clove team.

Happy birthday, Nutmeg & Clove! We’ll be sure to pop by for a layback or three.
