The artisan drink fad has reached Singapore, and alas, people here have taken it to an unnecessary monetary expense for the customers. Basically, they prepare something for you based on whatever information you give them, although I suspect they still have a set of cocktails in mind that they just give you as a personalized drink. All is fine and... More

I had heard a lot about bar stories, so paid a visit to only find one bleached hair rude chap serve us. He appears to be disinterested and looks at you as if you are a mixologist too and should know everything!! The cocktails were very nice, as we'd been there on a weekday it wasnt crowded and got a...

I have been to Bar Stories a few time over the past year and have been recommending it to friends as an interesting place to visit if you like cocktails. I brought a few friends over again tonight and was sorely disappointed in the level of service provided to my group by a member of staff. While he was taking... More

The service on the other hand stank. The place was empty and even then they failed to come and ask if we wanted a second drink - so we left...!

No bar menu, no predictable cocktails just select your fave spirit and type of taste and hey presto you get your own bespoke drink presented beautifully in front of you. The bar staff are pure genius the way they mix, the tools used and the art form in the presentation. The bar is in the top stroy of a gorgous... More

The first time we came here, we didn't really know what to expect. My husband had heard that they made 'bespoke' cocktails so we decided to try it out for his birthday. We were the first customers in and managed to get a seat by the window in some nice retro armchairs. The first member of staff that greeted us... More

Great venue, but the story has lost its mojo. So many other cocktail bars better than this. Asked for hell and received a martini. Really???

We stopped here for some drinks while trolling Singapore's Haji Lane. What I love about this place is that upstairs on a Saturday afternoon was such a great place to just relax and watch the people to by downstairs on the lane. The drinks are made bespoked based on your mood and desires at the moment and the bartender was... More

We brought some overseas guests with us to try out Bar Stories with recommendations from friends. We found a gem! The food was really unique and so tasteful. The lobster pasta, fried squid with squid ink, pork cheeks, fries with truffle oil were just fantastic...these were just a few items of the items we ordered. Service was excellent and staff... More
