Pretty much decent

Another amateur barhopper review. Let's go.  First off, the bar is situated near the road towards NLB. So, if you don't like to be seen drinking at night by colleagues or friends, do try to sit nearer the driveway window. After all, the whole place is glass. 

First entrance: It seem pretty nice, old english style, except for the fact that it is situated near a road and a driveway. It really gets on my nerve since it does spoil the mood. Anyway, the bar counter is clean and cold. In front is a simple TV and their shelves. Pretty decent.  Drinks: I've been here twice. The first time, I tried a cocktail (Screwdriver, not the manliest drink but its fine). The other, a Whisky House Pour (Single Malt).  They have pretty decent bartenders (Though im not sure if she's still there. In fact, the two times i went, i was served by different bartenders) But the bar appears to have hired people who know their alcohol at least which is pretty neat. 

First, the screwdrivers. Orange Juice with a Vodka base is impossible to go wrong. The bartenders are good, nothing wrong, good mixture. It was smooth and it serves as a pretty neat screwdriver. 

Next, the whisky. This is the part where I'm surprised. I got the bartender to recommend me whisky since I was new to it. She managed to explain the types of whisky they had and their taste. Pretty neat skill for a bartender. In the end, I got her to decide for me and it tasted good. It was on the rocks though, so that's why it probably made the taste come out of it. 

There really isn't much to comment on for this bar. Overall, even though the bartenders do not engage in conversations on their initiatives, its rather easy to talk to them however. I would however probably not return since they keep changing bartenders. I prefer having the same bartender. But its worth a visit to try their drinks. In terms of food, I'm not sure if they served as I've never seen anyone eaten there before. Otherwise, they do serve small tidbits like nuts and the classics.

Looking for a good, old-fashioned, English / Victorian-style bar to chillout at after work? Here, we recommend Victorian Bar at Interconental Hotel. A bar complete with wood-and-glass door, cozy couches and am ambience that will instantly transform you to Europe.

Its quietly-elegant ambience is suitable for business discussions and chilling out between friends. There is a wide selection of drinks, and the average spending is about $20 - $25 per pax. The service crew is friendly enough, and the seats are cushy and comfortable. At night, soft music and candlelights illuminate the place, turning it into the perfect spot for peaceful unwinding, after a long day's work.

Saturday (8 Mar 08). After our desserts at Aji Tei, JC, AC and myself were joined by KC, CP and QQ for our alcoholic beverages. We ordered 2 bottles of wine:

Domaine Laroche, Chablis $90++

Cape Mentelle, Sauvignon Blanc Semillon $85++


The wines were definitely overpriced, but we enjoyed the wine, each other's company and the atmosphere here very much. It was really cosy and quiet with a large tv on the wall silently screening the football action. We were seated in a cosy sofa and armchairs. It felt like as if we were in our own living room. Because it was not noisy, we did not need to shout on top of our voices to be heard.

After having our fill of drinks, we headed for supper at Al Jilani Restaurant.
