The super-swanky space at the newly opened NCO Club just got a bit more sophisticated with the opening of its live entertainment lounge Cool Cats.

The speakeasy-inspired venue is Singapore’s newest spot for jazz and blues stans with a weekly curation of acclaimed international artists. The dimly-lit 60-seater space is a realm different from the rest of opulent venues in NCO Club — more gritty 1920s prohibition than palatial grandiosity.

With the speakeasy concept comes a bar that bills itself as offering “traditionalist classics infused with a cross-continent touch,” whatever that means. All you need to know is that the fluorescent green bar in Cool Cats offers classic ‘20s cocktails such as Queen’s Park Swizzle ($22) and The White Lady ($20), as well as a Mezcal Negroni ($22). Apparently each of these has been tweaked slightly to have a more distinctive taste from the originals. But for the most of us who aren’t cocktail connoisseurs, the cocktails taste good, nonetheless.

If craft cocktails and 1920s aesthetics aren’t your thing, Cool Cats delivers in the realm of live music. The next artist in the lineup is Janine Annice, no stranger to the lounge scene in London with a captivating blend of jazz, R&B, and hip-hop. More details on their website and Facebook page.
