We went to the Tippling Club for the second time recently - the previous time was at Dempsey where we sat at the bar (this time was with friends). Both times we had the classic menu (the second time we added the additional cheese course).

The new restaurant is a lot more modern than the old one so a bit more modern.

The Tippling Club is definitely good for special occasions. Sitting at the bar makes the experience more special.

The cocktails are good.

The food is very good and was better the first time as some of the dishes were the same as the first time we went. The soup we has with razor clams was fantastic as was the dessert. The additional cheese course was fantastic but very tiny!

The Tippling Club isn't cheap but is cheaper than some other degustation meals in Singapore and well worth trying at least once.

The bar in overall looks just plain amazing. The bar staff are really nice people you can chat with and they do their job properly. The choice of cocktails is rather unconventional, however very novel and tasty. Plus the staff are more than happy to give you an advice on what you should try. Someone in this thread was unhappy about the prices, but hey, it's on the tip of the CBD, plus the knowledgeable staff and overall experience definitely correlate with the prices.

We dropped in for lunch, no booking, which apparently you don't do here :) But they fitted us in, made wine a food recommendations, all of which were excellent, and topped it all with great, friendly (but not intrusive) service. Not cheap, but treat yourself. You won't regret it.

Stopped in for drinks on a Friday evening.

Great decor - much better then the old location in Duxton.

But a bit unclear as to who they are competing with in this location - pricing and menu would say it's not the adjacent Korean BBQs and cheap n cheerful Italian - staff attitude and specialized cocktails would suggest they believe they are as good as the top end restos and bars around town - unfortunately they miss on both accounts.

First step to improvement ... A little less attitude from the bar/staff - remember even if you're "right" about your drinks - but the customer walks away feeling worse then when they sat down - you're probably "wrong"!

Won't be back - considering the other options for great restos / cocktails in Singapore !

This is the kind of restaurant that we personally, would go to just the once for "the experience". However, our first experience was so good, we took out daughter there for her 18th birthday as well. During our first visit I had called late due to my wife missing her flight from home and had to reschedule to a Saturday night which is very busy. The manager was most accommodating and helpful. Calling me back within the time scale that was promised and with the good news that she had fitted us in. (Thanks Stef) We had "the counter" overlooking the beautiful kitchen, and in my opinion, this is the best seat in the house. Lots of interaction with the staff who were all friendly and interested. Later relocated to the bar where new friends were made and a great night had through to the wee hours. For our daughter birthday I had requested "the counter" but was told that it was full that evening (another Saturday I think) but I explained our previous great evening at that location and as before, a promised call back within the tie scale with the good news that we had been fitted in. We had a fantastic time again met some some news friends in the bar after meal service. From our perspective we have had two great nights there where the food, although innovating, delicious and artfully presented has taken a back seat to the great vibe, even better bar, interaction and general bonhomie has made us feel right at home. Few fine dining experiences can match that.
