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.

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......
