There's always the fun with novelty that comes with travelling, and imbibers would resonate with bar-hopping especially when you're in a well-endowed city peppered with notable drinking spots. A bar in a foreign place typically hones a different culture, different drinking techniques, and different conversations — each infused with the unique flavour of the destination. So in light of the travel hiatus, The Old Man Singapore rolls out the 'Bars Unknown' tour, a collaborative series of pop-ups to bring in signature cocktails from some of the world's best bars with big names like Connaught Bar, El Copitas, Himkok and Maybe Sammy to name a few.

With cocktails concocted from all corners of the world spanning across Italy to South Korea, you'll literally be transported on a virtual bar world tour when you're actually in a charming bar located along the bustling Keong Saik Road.

Intrigued? The 'Bars Unknown' tour is only scheduled for the first and last week of each month, and each pop-up will feature two signature cocktails from a participating renowned bar. The first off the first of the week-long series has already launched on Monday, 22 February, featuring El Copitas Bar from St Petersburg, Russia (#27 on The World's 50 Best Bars 2020)

What a way to make an entrance onto our little red dot, for guests will be tantalised by their finest creations such as their sparkling concoction of Verde Gimlet and Aztec Negroni, a blend of Mexican tequila, mezcal, and sweet vermouth with a chocolatey aftertaste.

Futher down the line, The Old Man Singapore will also be putting their own spin on Connaught Bar's signature concotion, The Bumblebee, a vibrant, fruity gin-champagne tipple finished with grapefruit and basil spray. In case you didn't know, Connaught Bar, from Mayfair, London, ranks first on The World's 50 Best Bars 2020. And those missing the antics of Down Under will also be treated to inspired libations from mini martinis to house-roasted coffee concoctions by Maybe Sammy (#11 on The World's 50 Best Bars 2020). Bar Trigona is also set to serve up eco-friendly cocktails (made from indigenous ingredients), with its specialty in these locavore concoctions.
