L’Aiglon is a 76-seater vibrant bar nestled at the heart of rainbow-friendly Neil Road. L'Aiglon make a name for itself for its portfolio of rare champagnes and whiskies on its drinks by famous local barman Louis Tan along side wide Asian French Fusion sharing plates.
I have to say we found new favorite bar in Singapore. The cocktails were to die for and the services were excellent.
Of course we had the Scraming Tomatoes - the big sister but much more seductive than Bloody Mary (most famous drink at L'Aiglon I would say). Another fav drink was Burning Passion - WOW it was sooooo good I wanted to have 5 more. We tried 2 more cocktails, they were good but not as sensation as the first 2.
The waiter was very verry nice. We realized quickly that he must be the owner or one of the partner - the way he explained about the drinks, the promo they're planning to have in the coming month, the neighborhood. He even gave us a recommendation about a resturant that would be opened soon - Potatohead.
Lovely bar, good staff, good food but ruined when I returned home to realize they hadn't returned my card. I called to see how best to get it back regarding timing etcetera and the bar manager, considering me to be awkward, called me a 'f##king c#nt'.
The hospitality business ain't what it used to be! It's actually a nice bar but, needless to say, I won't be back...

The burgeoning cocktail scene in Singapore has provided us ladies (and many boys) with the hippest and coolest watering holes where we see those who wished to be seen. L'Aiglon, the latest offering, and an extremely attractive one, is gonna be where the party is. Owner Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart drew his inspiration from the golden ages of luxury travel when he designed L'Aiglon and this gem at 69 Neil Road absolutely embodies all that glamor.
We started our night with some delicious bubbly. Introducing the J.M. Labruyère Cuvée Tradition ($24/$110). There are only 60,000 bottles in the world and L'Aiglon is the only bar in the world that carries it. Really smooth.
Our drinks were prepared by the dashing world-class bartender Louis Tan, who recently won the qualifying round for the Diageo Reserve World Class 2014. If you find him familiar, he was the ex Head Bartender at Horse's Mouth.
A must try and my top favorite poison is the Screaming Tomatoes ($22). This is the wickedly seductive sister of the Bloody Mary. Made from fresh French cherry tomatoes with a bouquet of herbs, the flavor profile is peppery and savory; a spiked gazpacho. Vodka is used in this one.
The other favorite of mine is the Tiger Tail Sour ($18), a sweet fruity and fun cocktail. I can see myself drinking this all night. It's full of Vit C too, made from fresh passionfruit, pineapple and lemon and topped with Rum. Glurps. Well apart from the drinks, i must say that the snacks here are pretty amazing. Perfect finger food, similar price tags to my other favorite bar 28 Hong Kong. The Signature Pep's Chicken Mini burger (3 for $14) came with nicely toasted crunchy buns which sandwiched the juicy and well marinated chicken patty. Other signatures to look out for are the Obsiblue Tartare with ginger flower and lime caviar ($18) and the Smoked Salmon Maki ($14). We couldn't get enough of the Crab cakes ($14) with curry salsa and Granny Smith. The flavors kinda explode with each bite; it's a bit of that creaminess, with a hint of spice, some acidity from the apples and the savory crab meat. Drools. The Gent's chicken samosa (3 for $12) pales in comparison. So here you go, L'Aiglon, what is probably going to be the hottest thing on the cocktail scene in Singapore.
