A surprising great speak easy bar in an unexpected place: The Other Room @ Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel Singapore (2. January 2019)

| May 7, 2019 | 0 Comments

Sometimes you are really positively surprised by a place like I was by the Marriott Tang Plaza. Why you ask? Well, the hotel itself is really not what made me happy but I guess you can’t be picky if you have a certain budget you don’t want to go beyond plus you book shortly before over NYE.

However, when I googled ‘Speakeasy Singapore, a place showed up in the Marriott Tang Plaza. And I was like “I can’t believe that”. Right after the dinner, I went back there and actually realized that, yes, there is a speakeasy bar, right in the lobby called “The Other Room”. And you wouldn’t spot it from the outside besides during the day when they have a sign hanging there called “50 Best Bars of Asia”.

If you go after 9pm it is best to book in advance as else you won’t stand a chance to get in. The place is relatively small and there aren’t too many tables, so make sure to book in advance.

I went for a couple of drinks that evening and tried as a first drink the “High Tea (Vodka, peach, lavender, lemon, dry Vermouth, Yuzu tea, pear blossom)” (22.00 SGD) which was generally good but a bit weird to get it served in a tea cup.

The second one I tried was the “Asian Smash (gin, lemongrass, basil, lemon, vinegar, agave, almond)” (22.00 SGD) and it was also fine all in all.

The “Monkey Collins (Monkey 47, lemon, grapefruit, sugar, soda)” (25.00 SGD) was the perfect ending to a lovely drink experience and lovely evening in general.

What I liked a lot about the place is the interior …

… and the relaxedness of the place.

Furthermore, the service is super friendly and jovial. Just perfect really. I must say, a great speakeasy definitely worth visiting!
