Located within Fairmont Singapore, Anti:dote boasts a chic and modern aesthetic with local heritage influences. Step into a space of polished black concrete floors with a motif that is a modern interpretation of Peranakan lace embroidery. Beside a mix of standing tables with leaning perches in the main area, the establishment also features an open kitchen and bar.
With the bar counter and cold kitchen designed alongside one another, it allows both the head craftsman, Tom Hogan and head chef, Carlos Montobbio to work closely together. Before taking up his position in the cocktail bar, Hogan trained at notable Chicagoan institutions such as Bernard’s Bar at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel and North Pond Restaurant. Open to experimentation, he uses his own house-made bitters, tinctures and flavoured liquors to customise drinks for his guest.
What to order:
The fine selection of handcrafted cocktails is bound to excite the palates of many. We recommend Corpse Reviver, which comprises Lillet Blanc, homemade orange liqueur, lemon, absinthe and gin. The Blood of Dillinger may look like it belongs on the set of True Blood, but it’s quite a refreshing concoction made from beet, rosemary, honey, lemon and tequila.
