Society Bar serves a range of premium house pours for discerning drinkers. Its signature cocktails are made with Valt - the world's first single malt vodka. They also have a bar menu comprising of signature dishes, salads and finger food.
Whenever I pass by this alfresco-concept bar / lounge (Society Bar) at OCBC Centre, I am tempted to check it out. Simply because I like the Balinese style furniture and music and outdoorish design.
I seldom take beer, but heatiness made me decide to go for something cooling so I ordered a Hoegaarden pint in lieu of my usual red wine or cocktails. Beer being beer, or rather Hoegaarden being Hoegaarden - most of you would know the gassy, bittersweet-ish taste that bubbles up within your throat, hence no need for me to go into details on the taste of this beer.
I also ordered a Grilled Pork Belly with Lime Chilli to munch on, since I was a little hungry, and wanted to check out the snacks here (who knows when would be the next time I return here, right?)
The grilled pork belly was tasty - a little "bouncy" in its succulence, very chewy, and nice saltish hints. Dipped into the lime chilli, it was really delicious - savoury jostled by spiciness boosted with hints of sour... I love mixture of flavors, really - they dance on the tip of the tongue and ignite one's appetite and mood. A little too greasy though, in retrospect - I barely finished half (would've been nice if shared with friends).

I went to the whisky tasting and it was a great venue for it. In the middle of the CBD, it's a chilled out setting for an after work drink. The food was amazing. Well prepared and presented - not to mention very tasty!
Would definitely recommend if you want something more relaxed than the usual Kinki or Fives!
I attended a whisky tasting at the Society bar recently. We were treated to a good selection of whiskies, including a very nice single malt from bowmore, but the tasting menu that we were treated to made the night. I would be happy to order any of the dishes as a bar snack, the highlight being a seafood plate with baked oysters, scallops and my personal favourite oxtail stuffed prawns. Society bar is in a great central location from my office, so will definitely be on my post work drinks list. Only complaint was that there was a bit of a wait to get started, but the staff were attentive and made sure we always had a drink.
