Located on the second floor of Regent Singapore, Manhattan is an award-winning bar that was opened on 24 April 2014.[1][2][3][4] Manhattan was previously managed by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. As of 1 January 2019, Manhattan has been managed by the Capella Hotel Group.[5][6] Manhattan has represented Singapore alongside local bars like Jigger and Pony, Atlas Bar and Native cocktail bar with top placings in the World’s 50 Best Bars list. In 2017 and 2018, Manhattan was ranked first place in the Asia’s 50 Best Bars list.[7][8]

Bar decor & concept

Design concept

Reminiscent of archetypal bar scenes in the film noir movie genre, the interior of Manhattan is in an Art Deco design style. This style is representative of New York bars in the twentieth century. Fitted with mood lighting, the bar holds up to 89 seats. Chesterfield sofas and Italian marble coffee tables take up the centre of the floor space and leather banquette seating line both sides of the room. The main bar is located at the far end of the room and elevated by a panel of marble stairs. It is neatly decorated with a backdrop of 300 over bottled spirits.[9]


Tucked away from the main floor space are several private rooms that are suited for private gatherings. The rooms are named The Library, The Private Salon and The Rockefeller Room which can hold at least  7, 12 and 16 guests respectively.[10][11]

Rickhouse

Manhattan Bar is home to the world’s first in-hotel rickhouse which stores a collection of aged spirits. A rickhouse is a whiskey ageing warehouse traditionally filled with barrels. The ageing process used in Manhattan’s rickhouse is Solera — which combines liquids from older to newer casks during a specific ageing interval to create unique blends.[12][13]


Unique to Manhattan, the bar offers a Barreling programme. Through this workshop, guests can further their knowledge about the ageing process of spirits and bottle their own barrel that will be stored within the Rickhouse.[14][15]

Ingredients room

Manhattan Bar has an ingredients room within its premises that stocks a sizable collection of unusual and lesser-known ingredients like Schisandra berries, Dandelion root and Cinchona powder.[16] These ingredients are used in Manhattan bar’s cocktail offerings.[17][18]

Food & drinks

Cocktail menu

Manhattan’s cocktail menu is a tribute to American history, from the American Industrial Revolution in the 1920s to the nascence of disco in the 1960s. The menu features 25 seasonal creations which include interpretations of classic cocktails and original recipes. Cocktails are named after events and popular cultural references of the featured period. For example, the ‘Iron Shoe’ cocktail is named after the first steam locomotive that journeyed from Chicago to New York.[19][20][21][22]

Adults-only Sunday Cocktail Brunch

Manhattan Bar offers a lunch buffet that features an unlimited selection of alcoholic beverages. The brunch also has a bagel and Crêpes Suzette station, a carvery section of roasted meats and seafood such as oysters and lobsters. The highlight of the lunch buffet is the ‘Boozy Milkshake Station’ where guests can create their own alcoholic milkshakes.[23][24][25]

Whiskey collection

American Whiskey Embassy

Manhattan Bar has a Whiskey Glasshouse within the Ingredients room that holds a curated list of over 200 rare whiskeys. The collection includes vintage bottles dating back to America’s pre-prohibition era.[26] Spirits distributor, Proof & Company, was a part of the curation team.[27]


The collection was launched as the ‘American Whiskey Embassy’ on 4 July 2017 in commemoration of Independence Day in the United States. From time to time, Manhattan collaborates with American distilleries and features their creations through its House Pour programme.[28]

Manhattan American Whiskey Club

Launched on the same day as the 'American Whiskey Embassy', Manhattan Bar’s ‘American Whiskey Club’ is a platform for whiskey aficionados to cultivate a deeper appreciation of American whiskeys. Club members have access to private tasting sessions of rare and vintage whiskeys, masterclasses and skills workshops by industry professionals.[29]
