Nutmeg & Clove


The DNA of this bar is Singapore in essence – it’s as simple as that. The team, helmed by bar manager Shelley Tai and head bartender Gavin Teverasan, is proud of the city-stage’s heritage and history and strives to reinterpret Singaporean flavours into progressive cocktails, often using familiar local ingredients in a way that tells the stories of Singapore itself.

The latest menu, Ten, celebrates the bar’s 10-year anniversary, reflecting on Singapore’s top moments, as well as the bar’s. Each year is represented with two cocktails: a signature bestseller and a new creation, so it’s double the fun – and a harder decision! Start with the floral, dry and fruity Agnes’ Requiem, an ode to The Singapore Women’s Hall of Fame which opened in 2014, and more specifically, Agnes Joaquim, the first recorded woman to breed a hybrid orchid in 1893. It balances gin with raspberry eau de vie, rhubarb, galangal, orchid, jasmine, lemon and saline. Follow it up with a spirit-forward, tropical and bittersweet Is This Really Boulevardier?, with whisky, Campari, vermouth rosso, pandan, coffee and coconut. The team’s love of its homeland extends to the food offering, too. Choose the chong qing wings and the Ikan Assam pedas, or the rendang mac and cheese for a satisfying bite of East meets West. All will fill your belly and warm the soul.
