After a hard day's at work, there's nothing like a cool cocktail to set the mind at ease, and I like to recommend you to check out The Royal Mail Bar.
After two years, The Royal Mail Bar, the extended beverage arm of The Royal Mail Restaurant, introduces new speciality cocktails and British-inspired tapas to its menus.
The facelift draws inspiration from the evolving bar culture in Singapore, where there is an increasing demand for creative drinks that really serve to impress customers based on its ingredients, presentation and originality.
Culminating three months of hard work by the kitchen and bar team, they have conceptualised a revitalised direction for the bar offering with exciting choices. Guests can expect an appetizing range of specialty cocktails, a well-curated range of whiskeys and spirits, as well as bar grub that boast modern British sensibilities.
Using everyday ingredients, the bar’s resident bartender has whipped up 15 new concoctions. The recipes are borne out of his search for intriguing and flavourful drinks.
Savour two signature drinks: Timeless English and Old Fashioned Spice. With Timeless English, two classics are cohesively melded — earl grey tea and the classic martini drink — into one heady cocktail. A spin on the Old Fashioned Spice, a perennial favourite, is given a slightly sweetened aftertaste with the deft infusion of honey and clove.

The offering of these speciality cocktails is in keeping with customers’ changing
preferences. The burgeoning trend of cocktail bars in Singapore has inspired a demand for
‘off-the-menu’ drinks. With these novel creations, The Royal Mail Bar is able to offer an
enamouring experience,” said Mr Lois Blanc, Chief Executive Officer of Argentum Group.
Complementing the specialty cocktails is a gamut of tasty bar grub which include the
signature dish known to The Royal Mail Restaurant - Roast Prime Rib. Joining the ranks of
this marquee dish are delightful mainstays that showcase the chefs’ finesse and flair in
pairing food and drinks. The Cubed Beef Steak is an irresistible offering: each morsel is
tantalizing, especially when indulged with the accompaniment of Spicy Crab-Tomato and
The other equally satisfying and new item on the bar grub menu is BBQ Sweet and Spicy Meatballs. Flavours leap off the plate as the meatballs are doused in a piquant homemade BBQ sauce, tempered by raspberry jam and chilli flakes – an excellent sharing dish among colleagues and friends.
The kitchen team also presents Sweet Potato Chips with Shallot & Onion Salsa, a healthier alternative to the popular snack. These homemade roasted chips are enticingly crispy on their own; dip them into the salsa and the enjoyment is increased manifold.
“Our new bar grub menu focuses on working the taste-buds of guests as they enjoy our improved menu – especially with the new specialty cocktails. As the tastes of these new cocktails vary differently from the classic alcoholic drinks, we had to give the new drinks a good try before working on complementing its taste. Hence, the teamwork behind this menu revamp is crucial to what our guests can experience and enjoy,” said Group Executive Chef, Chef Micail Chepi.
Apart from introducing new specialty cocktails and British-inspired bar grub, The Royal Mail Bar would also like to regale all guests with new choices of draught and bottled beers, spirits and improvised daily promotions which appeal to the Central Business District drinking crowd. In giving a better variety of spirits to customers, the bar has brought in 10 new whiskeys which cater to sweet and peaty palettes. The new choices of whiskeys are:
-Aberlour 15 Years
-Arran Sherry Cask
-Compass Box The Peat Monster
