At the heart of the festival is an immersive calendar revolving around the pillars of ‘Taste’, ‘Play’ and ‘Learn’. One of the major highlights which allows visitors to ‘Play’ is the bar tours, a series of themed bar-hopping experiences that are grouped according to spirit specialties (gin and rum-focused bars), neighbourhood clusters (Keong Saik, Ann Siang), and other themes like bars with female bartenders and must-visit new bars. There are a total of nine types of tours and 24 tours will be running on a rotating basis. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a slots and find out more.
Workshops, masterclasses and guest shifts
Taking place at the various participating bars across town, these exciting workshops, masterclasses, and guest shifts aim to educate and entertain cocktail enthusiasts. Whether you’re seasoned or new to the world of cocktails, there is something for you to ‘Taste’ and ‘Learn’.
