Perhaps the most opulent drinking den in Singapore, the 7,400ft² Atlas – which opened its doors in 2017 – is a tribute to the grand Art Deco-style architecture of New York and Europe. Situated in the iconic Parkview Square building, the bar’s gilded columns, plush furniture and marble bar are the product of an arduous five-month renovation by owner Vicky Hwang. While other spirits are present on the menu, gin takes pride of place. A three-storey display houses over 1,000 different types of the spirit dating as far back as 1910. There’s a strict “Casual Chic” dress code from 5pm – so make like Jay Gatsby and come dressed to the nines.
The centerpiece at this grandiose Art-Deco-style bar is a ceiling-high display of over 1,000 gin bottles – from 1910 London dry gins to modern craft spirits from the world over. Its other design elements are equally lavish: think plush leather sofas against a gold and burgundy backdrop.
