New Atlas menu takes Art Deco inspiration
Award-winning bar Atlas in Singapore has released a new Art Deco-inspired cocktail menu.
The new drinks list, called Sense of Place, was developed by head bartender Jesse Vida and the bar team.
The menu took cues from European Art Deco architecture and also celebrates shared connections between the past and present.
Vida said: “Sense of Place pays homage to Atlas and what it means to our guests and ourselves, a place that we can all identify with and feel special.
“We wanted to connect our guests to the architecture of Atlas and many grand Art Deco landmarks through our cocktails.
“We look forward to welcoming guests to Atlas and for them to explore their connections to these magnificent structures.”
The menu is divided into seven chapters: Luminary Landmark (non-alcoholic), Dreaming in the Dark, Promise of Progress, Emporium of Hope, Palace of Peace, Electric Powerhouse, and Men of the Future.
Each chapter features an illustration of a European Art Deco landmark, including the Battersea Power Station in London and Helsinki Central Station in Finland.
Sense of Place also features a selection of gin and tonics, and will feature a new ‘Bartender’s Choice G&T’ for S$24 (US$18), picked by the Atlas team.
The venue’s classic cocktails will still be available, such as the Atlas Martini (S$25/ US$19), Orange Blossom Martini (S$28/ US$21) and the Atlas Espresso Martini (S$24). Guests can enjoy these drinks in a flight of three mini Martinis with An Atlas Suite (S$38/ US$28).
