Potato Head Singapore

Cocktail Bar in Chinatown & the CBD

Offshoot of the legendary Bali bar, this standout, multilevel playground incorporates three spaces, all reached via a chequered stairwell pimped with creepy storybook murals and giant glowing dolls. Skip the Three Buns burger joint and head straight for the dark, plush glamour of cocktail lounge Studio 1939 or the laid-back frivolity of the rooftop tiki bar.

The latter is best for languid tropical nights, where kitschy, crafty drinks like Coco Jak (pineapple-infused Nusa Caña rum, Merlet peach liqueur, agave syrup, mint and Cachaça float) come with skyline views.
