Celebrated bar releases new cocktail menu inspired by six decades of music
December 15th, 2022
Since 2008, Tippling Club has consistently excited new cohorts of discerning diners with innovative interpretations of modern gastronomy by chef-owner Ryan Clift. Over the same period, the cocktail programs at the bar have evolved in sync with the progressive cuisine establishing Tippling Club as one of Singapore’s pre-eminent gastro-cocktail destinations. International recognition has included regular rankings in the World’s 50 Best Bars and Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants.
Earlier this month Tippling Club launched the latest iteration of the bar menu – A Guide to Modern Drinking, Volume III – 6 Decades of Music. The new menu, designed by head bartender Arathorn Grey, mixes six decades of music with a complementary collection of 31 new cocktails. Each drink pays homage to an artist and their music – with guests able to listen to a curated playlist downloaded from a Spotify link on the menu as they sip their cocktails.
Each new cocktail is named after an artist and one of their iconic songs, representing the cultural zeitgeist of that decade. Cocktails are crafted as a continuation of the gastronomical journey undertaken in Volume I & II menus, championing exotic, uncommon ingredients, blended together with contemporary techniques. The 6 Decades of Music collection commences with the 1940’s – exemplified by the cocktail inspired by Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” – a sweet and creamy mix of Metaxa, Christmas mix, snowflake, cacao, and cream. Subsequent featured decades include cocktails such as the 1960’s Savoy Truffle by The Beatles; the 1970’s Gold Dust Woman by Fleetwood Mac; to the 1990s era of pop, rap, and alternative music including Big Poppa by Notorious B.I.G..
The bar at Tippling Club is open Monday & Tuesday – and Thursday to Saturday from 12.00 pm – 12.00 am (closed on Wednesdays and Sundays).
