Sago House


Born during the 2020 lockdown in Singapore, Sago House was set up by three industry veterans – Desiree Jane Silva (ex-28 HongKong Street and EC Proof), Jay Gray and Abhishek C George (Spiffy Dapper, among other venues) – as a true labour of love. The interior was built almost entirely by hand, with 80 per cent formed from upcycled materials. In 2023, the bar was forced to relocate to new premises, but the team made sure to bring with it the same spirit, style and philosophy that earned its original location its beloved status.

Upon arrival, every guest is still greeted with a ‘hello’ from all the working staff, before being shown to their table. These are just a few of the touches that earned the bar the Michter’s Art of Hospitality Award in 2023. The menu at Sago House always features six classic styles of cocktails, but the actual drinks will vary on a weekly basis according to ingredients available in local markets. A recent favourite, Acute Angel, combines calvados, apricot and white wine aperitif for a punchy and slightly fruity number.
