Revamped Bar Menu at The Royal Mail Bar

Many a times as I passed by The Ascott, I am just captivated by the beauty of the building. It used to be an office building but has since became a service apartment. 

I was thrilled to be able to visit this building last Friday! The first and second level of the building houses The Royal Mail Bar and The Royal Mail Restaurant respectively

 Get a few friends and have a drink during Happy hour! 
After two years, The Royal Mail Bar, the extended beverage arm of The Royal Mail Restaurant, introduces new specialty cocktails and British-inspired tapas to its menus.
In addition to the new cocktails, the bar also brought in 10 new whiskeys which cater to sweet and peaty palette. There are Arran Sherry Cask, Aberlour 15 Years, Nikka Coffey Grain and Kavalan Single Malt to name a few

I was joined by some bloggers and foodie instagrammers last Friday evening for a night of fun and drinks at The Royal Mail Bar . We were thrilled to try out their new drinks and bar grub menu! 

Using everyday ingredients, the bar's resident bartender has whipped up 15 new concoctions. The recipes are borne out of his search for intriguing and flavourful drinks

Let me show you some of the pretty cocktails we tried! * all cocktails cost $18 , but during Happy Hours 5pm -8pm , they are only going for $10! and 1 for 1 house pour (Gentlemen's Pour 45ml ) go for $15 :) It's not too taxing on the pocket!

Started the night with a Tina Funfetti 

Blended mix of Baileys, Chocolate Syrup,
 Milk and Butterscotch with a drizzle of Grenadine and Sprinkles

This is The Royal Mail Bar's signature drink! 
Old Fashioned Spice cocktail is given a slightly sweetened aftertaste 
with a deft infusion of honey and clove 

Apple of My Eye
Muddled Green Apple Slices shaken with Vodka, Frangelico, 
Sour Apple and Egg White for a frothy finish
( mine must have been sitting for too long before 
I snapped this pic..It's way prettier! )

Agent 006 
Muddled Lime Juice, Sugar and Mint leaves, with Rum and Lychee Juice
 with a burning stream of Bacardi 151

I was downing this like nothing! 
Totally my personal favorite ! 
Be my (man)go 
Mango Puree blended with Rum and Sugar 

Enjoy some live music as you enjoy the drinks and food!

Just gotta show u these two fruity creations!
Right: Dear Cupid --Gin shaken with basil leaves, syrup & lime juice
 topped with a strawberry
Left :Love struck Ginny -- Gin shaken with watermelon juice, syurp ,
 mint leaves and sweet & Sour

What's a bar if there isn't any food to munch on right?
Check out this addictive fries with the truffle mayo! $12
This truffle mayo is way cooler way to pair with the fries compared to
other truffle fries :) Have a sip of the drinks !
Billion dollar Margarita  & Timeless English ( signature drink )

More munchies! 
This crispy sweet potato chips goes so well
with the shallot and onion dip!

This is another hot favorite 
Sauteed Chorizo Sausages served with some toasts. 

who would have thought of
Shrimp paste chicken drumlets in  bar?
These were delicious to the end!
One of the best garlic bread ever tasted!
$8 for two halves :)
Very potent ! We love it!

Don't fret if these food are not enough for you, there's more 
 Cubed beef- Prime Roast served with
Spicy crab tomato and Bearnaise sauce

It is an irresitable offerring, each morsel is tantalizing
 especially when paired with the sauces! 

 We weren't expecting a dessert! 
But yes, we were served with a sweet and well 
torched Vanilla Creme Brulee!

Do check out this cozy bar for your next Happy Hour! 

Go after work today!!
