Seasonal organic cocktails and contemporary French cuisine at chic rooftop bar atop Esplanade Theatres
September 16th, 2015
Among the coolest of rooftop bars in Singapore, Orgo sits discreetly atop the low-rise Esplanade Theatres at the Bay complex, enticing an in-the-know clientele with its unique combination of progressive Japanese organic mixology, contemporary cuisine, and sweeping views across the Marina Bay precinct and city skyline. With a distinctly low-profile presence among the plethora of glitzy rooftop venues in Singapore, Orgo rewards discerning visitors with its upscale casual-chic aesthetic and relaxed, unpretentious vibe. Established since 2009, Orgo is a popular destination for after-work and sunset drinks, elegant contemporary French-influenced dining, and intimate private functions.
Design Featuring a minimalist, eco-friendly design concept conceived by founding partner Nick Yen, Orgo comprises a series of interconnected and free standing glass and aluminium-framed modules arrayed across the timber and artificial turf decking. Guests can choose between open-air settings of rattan furniture, or the air-conditioned comfort of the glass-encased pavillions – all offering spectacular panoramic views.
Mixology At the core of the Orgo experience are the imaginative cocktails of Japanese mixology maestro (and founding partner of Orgo) Tomoyuki Kitazoe. Taking a scientific approach to mixology, unexpected flavour combinations are created from organic seasonal fruits, culinary ingredients and in-house infusions using premium quality liquors. Specialty cocktails on the extensive drinks list include Asian-inflected interpretations of classic cocktails such as fruit-based Fresh Martinis, Fresh Mojitos and Fresh Daiquiris that feature combinations of organic local fruits such as pomegranate, mangosteen, dragon fruit, mango and pomelo to create well-balanced and flavourful drinks.
Cuisine A contemporary, French-influenced cuisine agreeably complements the flavours of the progressive Japanese mixology. Classic French cooking techniques are melded with fresh local culinary ingredients to create an appetising menu replete with an eclectic assemblage of innovative dishes, highlighted with daily specials.
Orgo opens daily from 6:00 pm, serving drinks and dinner until 2:00 am (last dinner orders at 1:00 am). Reservations for dinner or private pavillions are recommended, and Orgo is also a popular venue for corporate events and private parties. Special promotions are held in conjunction with major public events in the Marina Bay precinct – check the Facebook Page for details.
