Following an extensive interior transformation, MO BAR reopened last month to welcome guests back to the exclusive cocktail enclave nestled in the luxurious property of Mandarin Oriental, Singapore. The highly anticipated reopening sees the award-winning bar present a refreshed team headed by newly-appointed Bar Manager Charlie Kim, a newly-furnished space, plus the Volume Five cocktail menu, titled Blue Print, woven with narratives inspired by the nostalgic roots of the city’s exceptional architectural growth.

The introduction of the new 14-strong cocktail menu transitions from the bar’s nomadic explorations throughout the Asia Pacific, which themed the past four menu volumes, to its roots on the sunny shores of Singapore. The four-chapter menu takes guests through the evolution of the cityscape, marrying mixology with architectural motifs. Local flavors and homegrown spirits permeate the narrative of each beverage, while progressive blends, techniques, and infusions elevate them — likening the MO BAR experience to the Exceptionally Singapore spirit echoed by Mandarin Oriental: steeped in nostalgia, with an endless pursuit for progress and an eye set on the future.

“MO BAR’s Volume Five is designed to take guests on a journey through Singapore’s past, present, and future. Our team invites you to embark on an experience to uncover a blend of heritage and innovation as the Blue Print menu unfolds Exceptionally Singapore’s tale in every sip,” says Bar Manager, Charlie Kim.

Along with the new menu, MO BAR’s revamp comes with a refreshed space that beckons discerning patrons, industry professionals, and world-renowned bartenders.

Beyond the captivating main bar, the stage is set with a dual guest bar, primed to create an environment for exceptional guest shifts to take place alongside the MO BAR team. It is also home to an intimate, sealed-off counter perfect for longer residencies, where acclaimed mixologists can shake up their signature cocktails and bring their unique concepts to the shores of Singapore from all around the world.

In the coming months, guests can expect a calendar replete with exciting special events and nights of revelry as MO BAR solidifies its mission to elevate the Singapore cocktail scene and bring the pinnacle of bartending excellence and a taste that is Exceptionally Singapore, to our doorstep.

MO BAR opens daily from 5:00 pm – with Sundays to Thursdays closing at 1:00 am, and Friday & Saturday at 2:00 am.
