If you’ve been seriously missing the nightlife scene, the Singapore Cocktail Festival (SGCF) is here to quench your thirst. In the second run of its City Takeover, a pivotal edition that was birthed during the pandemic last year, Asia’s largest celebration of cocktails expects over 60 events on its festival calendar from Nov. 12 to Dec. 12 2021. Grab your plus one, because the exciting event lineup includes boozy cocktail brunches, bar crawls, and an inaugural collaboration with London Cocktail Week.
Since bars and restaurants have been restricted from playing music, SGCF hopes to inject some fun back into bars by making “Music” the theme for this edition’s cocktail innovation. The City Takeover sees 36 participating cocktail bars presenting one music-themed cocktail each. All cocktails are priced at S$18++ for those with Festival wristbands. Register for a free wristband on the website.
For the brunchy bunch, 10 bars will be taking turns to impress in a cocktail brunch showdown. Participating venues include Jekyll & Hyde, Low Tide, Origin Bar, Republic Bar, and Tippling Club. All brunch menus come with one SGCF Signature Cocktail, because what’s brunch without a side of booze?
To satisfy your wanderlust, four bar crawls will be available for booking, each designed to spotlight the world’s best bars. If you prefer a taste of local pride, experience the best of Singapore’s vibrant cocktail scene with the Singa-pour! Bar Crawl. Each bar crawl features three bars per itinerary.
SGCF will also be retailing the “Singapore Spirit” limited-edition home bar gift set in collaboration with Tanglin Gin that comes with one 50ml bottle each of Orchid Gin and Singapore Gin; 2 bottles of Franklin & Sons Tonic Water; assorted garnish; and an SGCF Cocktail Shaker Set.
