Bitters & Love is a cocktail bar, located at 36 North Canal Road. Driven by love and passion, this bar strive to make the best seasonal bespoke cocktails which changes every three months.
With the kind of names cocktails tend to have, one imagines it takes more time to come up with a catchy sobriquet than it does to create the actual recipe. Bitters & Love is a place that proves names don't really matter. While you can most certainly order what you're familiar with, it's much more fun to pick a spirit and a flavour profile and let the mixologists, led by Din Hassan, do the rest. The nameless Ron Zacapa and passion fruit ($25) and Wild Turkey and kiwi fruit cocktails ($19) for example are refreshing, perfectly balanced and come with enough mint leaves and fruit slices to make a decent dessert salad. Check in also for their regular events, for December, Tuesdays are BYOB tasting sessions. For more drinking guide, click here
Cozy venue, good sofa seating with decent bar food. The mixologist can stir up anything you want or any flavors you preferred. We had him prepared 5 of his personal special and 1 was good. The rest though creative and fancifully decorated, nothing much to rave about.
Will definitely visit again but probably sticking to the more common cocktails.
Great drinks. Don't deny yourself but coming here and ordering a bottled beer or wine, I'm sure they're adequate but here you get a menu, pick the alcohol base you want, and give the bartender some hints as to what you like (sweet vs bitter, fruity vs alcohol) and he'll make you a unique cocktail based on your drinking personality. No 2 drinks are the same. Drinks take a little longer to arrive because of the artistry put into each concoction. End result is very tasty. I'm a big drinker so I wish my drinks could be stronger with more alcohol but still very tasty. Bartenders are also really congenial and music is great. I came here for an event with probably 25 people and it was a little cramped but everyone enjoyed themselves. Cocktails are about $20 each.
