Dim lighting, cool jazz and a bar counter at the end by the shophouse's windows is what you'll find. This place has character and is a welcome escape from the harpies roaming the walkway outside. This is a sanctuary on Boat Quay.   Settling into our seats I began to peruse the shelves of spirits, liqueurs and other cocktail-making ingredients lining the bar. Bottles cover the shelf almost haphazardly and there seems to be almost no method to where the bottles should go. Reminding me of my own liquor-shelf at home I liked it already.   As for the drinks, I had spied a couple of tasty-looking concoctions on their Facebook page and was eager to get down to it...   Beginning with a Joe Giggle Water' ($20)- Espresso martini made with coffee from Smitten, Cuban rum and a splash of vodka. A refreshing, well balanced cocktail, this is something to pick up at the beginning of the night and keep you going all night........

Pop up lunch with $10 cocktails

Total Reviews: 295

Went for a #popuplunch at the #secretcooksclub, cooked and #servedwithlove by a #secretchef. We're told not to advertise this, but a peek won't harm - it's a three-course lunch at the suggested donation of $16+, which is a steal for a 63-degree cooked egg with black salt, sous vide salmon, red wine poached pears and great buzz; The Spiffy Dapper was packed, busy serving $10 specialty spritzes, and with people from all walks.

1920s Jazz Age

The cocktails here are as potent as they come. Try the Gold Digger ($20), their take on a lychee martini or the very exotic Sheik on the Level ($20), Turkish black tea gin with hints of cardamom - this last one comes topped with a Turkish delight candy. Space is limited, so drop by before the crowds get wind of it. Read more Hot New Restaurants review here http://www.hungrygowhere.com/gallery/hot-new-restaurants-*gid-46300400/photos/#071d0800

Upon entering on the 2nd floor, you are immediately confronted by a startling (although very cool) painting of a post-coital lady wearing a bow-tie, top-hat and not much else. Yes, this must be the place...   Dim lighting, cool jazz and a bar counter at the end by the shophouse's windows is what you'll find. This place has character and is a welcome escape from the harpies roaming the walkway outside. This is a sanctuary on Boat Quay.
