I intended to have just 1 drink, but was impressed by my 1st one that I had to order another. I chose the Green Hills of Africa #1935 ($17+), which has a base of rosemary-infused pisco. A refreshing turmeric & tamarind cocktail, it had citrus notes as well, which I thought was a great drink to end my night with.

I am excited to return to try the rest of their cocktail menu. Good cocktails are really growing on me lately, especially those with unique flavours which look & taste like much research, thought & effort have been put into them.

🍍 Look for the pineapple lamp - under which that's the entrance!

My first drink, The Sun Also Rises #1926 ($17+), mixes curry leaf infused Bulldog gin with copra fat-washed applejack. While gin infusions aren't new to me (I loved this one btw), fat-washing is.

Fat-washing is a technique that infuses a fatty flavor into an alcohol. I'm not sure if you're supposed to taste the fats (in this case, coconut oil - I could only smell, not taste it), but I couldn't & I hope it stays that way. Because I am very fat-averse πŸ˜‚

I liked the flavours of this cocktail. The well-balanced tartness & sweetness of the applejack was lovely. On top of this, the layered fragrance of the lime kaffir & sweet vermouth sous vide pandan leaves were somewhat comforting.

Before my drink even arrived, I was served a glass of cold water that was regularly topped up throughout my evening. As a perpetual thirsty hippo, I appreciated this so much. & the tidbits, dare I say, are very addictive.

I got lucky & was here just before peak period hit. It got real crowded by the time I left, such that many were standing & drinking - not that they seemed to mind, though.

One of the guys, Louis, saw that I was alone & came over to chit chat for a while. He was very friendly without bordering on intrusive. Made me feel very at ease. He also offered to explain the menu to me if I wanted, but I was in quite a mood, so I wanted some time to myself & that was cool with him too.

🍍 Look for the pineapple lamp - under which that's the entrance!

In search of The Old Man, I kept my eyes peeled for the single pineapple lamp outside (thanks Google) & when I found the wooden doors, I pushed them open carefully. As I peered behind the black curtains, I was warmly welcomed into the dimly lit premises. Was ushered to a bar seat, being a convenient party of 1 & the tables mostly had groups of 4 pax at least.

I was handed a nice tight menu of 9 cocktails. I read through them & was impressed by how thoughtfully crafted this menu is. While mostly gin-based, other cocktails use unique bases like Vermouth, Absinthe, Pisco & White Rum.

The ingredients of the cocktails here are also very bespoke, with infusions & sous-vide ingredients. & a lacto-fermented raspberry (what!). If you're someone who loves trying unique drinks, you might have difficulty choosing which ones to have. They all sound great.

I ordered a glass of Somerton Cabernet Sauvignon ($10++ HH / $13++ U.P.); was shocked to find a glass of white wine delivered to me. They messed that up, but nothing unforgivable lah. Sent it back & got a glass of the correct wine shortly after.

Wine was not bad, so in all I'd return for Happy (Shucking or otherwise) Hour again.

Took me a while to get acknowledged by the staff at The Oyster Bank - waiting at the "please wait to be seated" sign for almost 5 minutes didn't exactly give me a very good first impression to begin with.

Happy Hour here is from 12 - 9PM daily, & Happy Shucking Hour is 5 - 8PM on weekdays, 3 - 6PM on weekends. Double reasons to be happy. This was the reason why I came here in the first place.

When you reach the bottom of your alcoholic bubble tea, you get the creaminess to end off the drink on a very lovely note. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would!

The pearls in these alcoholic bubble teas aren't your traditional tapioca flour pearls. Think sizeable fruit pops that burst in your mouth to reveal fruity flavours.

Don't misinterpret these as saccharine sweet balls that will make you gag. They are only slightly sour if anything at all. I loved them. Mine were lychee, but they also have mango & strawberry fruit pops.

Aside from specialty cocktails, The3Peas also serves alcoholic bubble tea.. Fascinating. As a 0%-sugar bubble tea drinker, I was slightly hesitant to try this. But after talking to Eunice & hearing her take me through their alcoholic bubble tea offering, I knew I had to try one.

Their 3 standard offerings cover whiskey, gin & rum: Frambo-licious, Peach Ginie & Gingerbread Snap respectively, all at $15 nett a pop. But they can also do a bespoke surprise for you at $20 nett, which is still quite affordable.

I chose Peach Ginie (gin-based), which has freshly whipped cream on top a base of jasmine green tea. I enjoyed how the tea wasn't bitter, even as I sipped on its fresh clearness - if you know what I mean (milk tea drinkers where ya at)

Shopback GO led me here - surfed the app for cashback boost locations & this piqued my curiosity. So I made the trip down to The3Peas. Interesting to note that this hidden bar is actually located along my usual running route... So I pass by at least twice a week. Considerably incognito, I love it.

Don't hunt too hard though - it's on the riverside bank opposite The Warehouse Hotel; just look for the 7-11 & it's right next door. You're welcome!

I started off with something from their specialty cocktail menu - they have 7 on the list, but can whip up something to suit your preference. This is the beauty of a bespoke cocktail bar - & an added plus to me: Prices here are very reasonable.

My poison of choice, a little predictably, was the Glen O' Fashioned ($20 nett) - Glenfiddich 12 whiskey, snow pear demerara reduction & acanthopanax bitters. Served in a chilled glass with a burnt orange slice. Sipped on it slowly as I did my own thing at the bar seats, & also talked to Eunice who was very friendly, chatty & passionate.

I'm an early bird, & if you're like me you will love the quietness of this place - they also have an excellent playlist, btw. I enjoyed my French Earl Grey Gin & Tonic ($22 nett) as much as I did my Me Time.

On Fridays/Saturdays (depending on when they have events planned), it gets crowded here as the night goes on. DJs lined up & all! Looks like I'll have to return when my party mode is on πŸŽ‰

Then the fun started. Jo introduced me to several unique gins that I've never heard of before. Think Wasabi Gin, Ant-infused Gin...

You might assume these are gimmicky. I'll admit, they drew me in. But that aside, the flavours are pretty special. Worth a shot (or two πŸ˜‚).

So. I'm not a gin expert, but their variety here is impressive. Chit-chatted quite a bit with Jo; we skipped past Brockmanns, Gin Mare, Botanist, Roku, Bulldog... All of which are delicious, but which I've tried before.
