On level one of Bras Basah Road’s Fairmont Singapore, Anti:dote is an irresistible cocktail bar that combines traditional bartending with more modern and experimental mixology. Watching cocktails being prepared is quite a therapeutic experience, then with that first sip you can really taste the knowledge and skill that’s gone into them. At Anti:dote this is very much the case, made even sweeter with thanks to the use of premium spirits alongside housemade bitters, liqueurs and sodas. Alongside such exquisite cocktails, Anti:dote also serves innovative modern tapas, afternoon tea and a lunchtime menu. It’s smart casual and reservations are essential for the popular afternoon tea.

Within Fairmont Singapore, Anti:dote is a beautiful space with cocktails, tapas and afternoon teas to match. Every cocktail, small tapas plate or lunch main served here is so pretty you almost don’t want to ruin them by tucking in, yet they taste so good you simply have to. We’ll start with lunch because, in the words of the Anti:dote team themselves, lunch matters. On the lunch menu you can expect simple but fantastic dishes in the way of beer-braised pork belly sliders, lobster rolls and pan-roasted sea bass. If, however, you only care to nibble, the tapas options at Anti:dote Singapore range from salmon ceviche or crispy veal cheek to cheese platters or chicken liver parfait.
As we say, the cocktails are the main attraction at this Bras Basah bar and all of them are excellent. Try the mellow Rabbit Hole, the cheeky Lord Kane or the rather boozy Donkey Kong, complete with a signature Anti:dote banana black bitter and plenty else besides. Anti:dote Singapore also serve punch bowls designed for 4-6 people as well as an extremely impressive selection of wines – by the bottle or the glass – and a range of international spirits. Without question, Anti:dote is one of our favourite bars around the Bras Basah Road area so it’s high time you checked it out.
