Last month Studio 1939 introduced its latest cocktail menu, “Palette of Sounds” – a sophisticated new drinking experience inspired by art, music, and locality. Established since 2014, the bar is located within the prominent Potato Head building along the popular dining and bar Keong Saik Road neighborhood. Occupying a hidden space on the 3rd floor – sandwiched between the level 2 dining hall and rooftop bar – Studio 1939 enjoys continuing popularity for its well-crafted cocktails and relaxed ambience. Headed up by the Bar Manager and Head Bartender Kavish Hurrydos, the bar focuses on using fresh and sustainable ingredients for their cocktail creations.

Introducing its latest cocktail menu, “Palette of Sounds,” a sophisticated new drinking experience inspired by art, music, and locality, Kavish explains the new creations as “Much like a work of art, the drinks really are up for interpretation depending on your perspective…  cocktails are easy and simple, yet somehow still fun and complex”. Studio 1939 aims to elevate its cocktail offerings with the new menu – bringing a new level of creativity and hospitality to the speakeasy bar, and without any pretensions.

The menu offers something for every personality and occasion, from the smooth jazz-infused notes of the Ottis Rock (S$26) with bourbon, coffee, green apple, chocolate, and a zing of jalapeno; to the vibrant, abstract expressions of a fruity and refreshing Rhythm and Vase (S$23), a low-ABV mix of vermouth, watermelon, yuzu, citrus, Perrier and Aer. Helping guide guests to their perfect creation, each drink comes to life through an abstract and colour-forward illustration on the menu.

Other highlights include the Imagine Dragon (S$23), a highball-style cocktail built around the striking red hues of dragon fruit combined with gin, peach, pineapple, calamansi, and lemongrass. Inspired by Indian flavours, the Sun Won’t Set (S$26) features a harmonious blend of chaat masala, mango citrus, mace, and curry leaf mixed with mezcal and tequila for a spice-forward tipple.

Studio 1939 complements its cocktails with a much-loved food menu featuring iconic Three Buns burgers by Executive Chef Adam Penney. Studio 1939 is located at 36 Keong Saik Road, Floor 3, and is open daily from 5 p.m. to midnight.
