No menu, just right. Tell them what you want to taste and they'll craft something incredible. Has my highest recommendation.

We have been meaning to try Bar Stories for a long time and we finally managed to get there. It was well worth the visit. Not so kind on the wallet but that's Singapore for you and you really are paying for the creativity that goes into the cocktails. Having no menu may be a bit daunting to some but... More

Located at second floor along Haji Lane shop houses. They don't provide menu for cocktails. The waiter will ask what's your taste for cocktail and they will surprise you.! Good for gathering.

This is not a bar you go to and order a vodka soda. There is no menu -- instead, you describe the things that you like to your server, and they will create a custom drink for you. My husband and I went here for a drink with our ex-pat family and absolutely loved it. Each of the 4 of... More

This is a bar with no menu. You can ask for anything you want. Each drink will cost you around 30SGD. This is the place present you cocktail as an art form. Definitely not the place if you are looking for a drunk. Was fun to visit with a bunch of friends.

Went to this small bar at one of Haji Lane shop houses stretch because a friend of mine recommended the place. We were greeted by the friendly bartender Dave. The place was small, cozy and intimate, there were no jarring background music and the ambient was just nice for friendly hangout place. He explained that they don't have a menu... More

was here for after dinner drinks on a week day evening. first visit, but the stroll down haji lane was alluring charming in the night. If this is your first visit here, grab seats by the bar. The bartender - he's got some good experiences with clients to share. Do not expect a menu, do not order the standard like... More

So I've never seen a concept like this for a bar before. There is no menu so the idea is that you describe a taste that you like with the barman and then he creates it. It's almost like talking to a creative consultant about a product you want and imagine and then before your eyes he meticulously prepares the... More

There is no menu at this place and it is very hard to find. It is in a very small door way down Haji lane. When you get in you have to walk up the stairs. I asked for a whisky cocktail that is peaty. The waiter took his time to perfect a great drink for me. The experience was... More

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighborhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly colored fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Center and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
