Cocktail enthusiasts are in for a treat as Singapore gears up to host a twelve-day celebration of special serves and unique events from 1 to 12 May this year. The Singapore Cocktail Takeover will showcase some of the city’s best-loved bars and highlight the vibrant cocktail scene that has made the city a “must-visit” destination for cocktail aficionados. Thirty bars will offer two signature cocktails at the special price of S$18++ throughout the duration of the campaign, alongside a programme of events and guest bar shifts to bring people together and discover an industry that has grown to become world-class over the last decade.

Currently, Singapore has eleven bars listed in Asia’s 50 Best Bars, more than neighbouring countries, and several of these bars feature in the Cocktail Takeover next month, including Jigger & Pony, which ranked highest in the 2023 list at second. Other bars set to offer specially created cocktails as part of the campaign include well-known haunts such as MO Bar, White Shades, No Sleep Club, Nutmeg & Clove and Elephant Room.

“We really want to celebrate an industry and community that has become one of the jewels in Singapore’s crown,” said Guoyi Gan, Co-founder/ Director Jigger & Pony Group and one of the campaign’s initiators and leads. “Singapore has fallen in love with cocktails and cocktail culture over the last decade, and the result has been a thriving industry that brings in people from all over the world both to invest in, and visit our stunning bars. In May, a diverse group of these bars will be rolling out their best hospitality by offering new and unique cocktails at a special price, so that more Singaporeans can come bar-hopping and try cocktails whilst drinking a toast with our exceptional local bar fraternity.”

‘Cocktail curious’ Singaporeans can not only savour exceptional cocktails across the 30 bars during the campaign, but also get to see some of the region’s top bar talent in action around participating bars hosting guest shifts to celebrate the cocktail takeover. A full programme of guest shifts and events can be found at and includes Taiwanese bars Moonrock, Slow Down, Bar Dip and Voiceover taking over Nutmeg & Clove, Tokyo’s famous Bellwood at Jigger & Pony, and a special ‘Punch Brunch’ at Republic Bar on 11th April.
