Atlas Bar, Singapore

Located in the Parkview Square Building in Singapore in the historic Bugis neighorhood is the newly remodeled Atlas Bar inspired by the glamorous Art Deco buildings and skyscrapers of Europe and New York. Indeed, it is a dizzying homage to the period in every detail. And instead of a wine tower, the Atlas boasts a "gin tower" behind the bar, serving the beverage that was all the rage in the Roaring 20s!

The Atlas has a dedicated Gin Team--Jason Williams, Master of Gin, Roman Foltán, Head Bartender, and Jonathan Teo, Gin Researcher--and their website says: "ATLAS houses one of the world’s most diverse and thoughtfully curated physical gin collections - more than 1,000 gins in all. Sample London dry gins from as far back as 1910, or the best of modern craft gins from the far corners of the world. Many have been generously and personally contributed by their distillers. Others have been hand-carried from far and wide by new and old friends. Each one special, and waiting for your next martini."
