6. Origin Bar, Singapore

This year, Origin Bar opened its doors in Singapore’s luxury Shangri­-La Hotel, where it hopes to transport imbibers through the state’s districts.

Located at lobby level, Origin Bar features a drinks list created by bar manager Adam Bursik, which takes guests on a voyage of discovery through five key districts of Singapore: Orchard, Chinatown, Little India, Boat Quay and Marina Bay. Each cocktail is intended to reflect the colours, flavours and historical anecdotes of these areas, and drinks on the menu include: The Pearl, which has been influenced by Marina Bay, and contains tofu, elderflower, sea grapes, mugi shochu and black forest gin; and the Leaf Curry, which reflects Little India with its mix of curry leaf, tamarind, cardamom and aged rum.

For those avoiding alcohol, Origin Bar offers a number of drinks that celebrate the local botany and fruits – from refreshing citrus to roasted coffee.
