- No.29 Asia's 50 Best Bars 2021
There’s gold in them there hills... or rather in Singapore's Boat Quay district, where Barbary Coast evokes the excitement of the mid-1800s California Gold Rush in all of its incarnations, with a pair of distinct spaces. For a taste of the down-to-earth San Francisco drinking establishments of that era, head to dive bar Deadfall first. Like the watering holes, or deadfalls, that inspired it, this is a casual, unpretentious spot where anything could happen. Then there’s the glamorous Barbary Coast Ballroom, styled on the lavish venues of the time. Here you can explore the forward-thinking cocktail list, accompanied by an excellent selection of drinking food, not least some impressive charcuterie and cheese boards.
