Perched atop the beautiful National Gallery, Smoke & Mirrors is one of the few bars in Singapore that I've been to more than once. & if you haven't been recently, it's probably time to visit again.. To check out their newly launched drinks menu - The Real Art of Drinking Volume II.

While I haven't conquered all 16 cocktails on the menu (slowly lah, I'll get there eventually), I was lucky enough to try this one pre-launch. Perks of sitting at the bar, I say. Even though the panoramic views of Singapore's skyline - my favourite night view - from the outdoor seats tempt me every time I visit.

Cha Cha Duet ($26++): Haku Vodka Matcha Distillate, Roku Gin / Chivas Mizunara Blended Scotch, Acid. These look simple, but don't knock it 'til you try it. Y'all remember Suntory's clear & colourless milk tea, & how confused you were when you first drank it? Same experience. Except this drink is 3497587934 times better, every sip of the way.

The complexity of the matcha flavours blew my mind. Both are great, but I have a slight preference for the green one. But anyway, they come as a pair. Wee Siong knows that 2 drinks in 1 makes auntie very happy - thanks for suggesting this. Now, for 15 more suggestions....

Wouldn’t recommend the cocktails, but a good place for a date night if you want a good view!!!!
And yes the truffle fries were pretty good

Cocktails here were v special. Ordered some bar bites: truffle fries, breaded mid-joint wings and tuna tataki. Portion for tuna was way too small for the price. Wings and truffle fries were not bad!

Conceptualised by new head bartender Jorge Conde, the menu showcases various playful libations which often riff off classic cocktails and emphasize experience over visuals (the latter being quite the focal point in previous iterations of the menu).

While the agave-led "Smoke & Mirrors #4" updates the bar's signature cocktail, "Robbery At The Museum" reimagines the Singapore Sling as a foamy minx who's more pineapple tart than cherry sweet, and the "Le Paix 75" is a luxuriously botanical take on the classic Martini.


Another new drink by Head Bartender Jorge Conde @jotacecrea in the "Illusion of Flavours" cocktail series, with drinks that combined spirits and magical illusions while pushing the boundaries of expectations with modern techniques. And it's both an art and a science - he does these science experiments in his private lab through a backdoor within Smokes and Mirrors.
Pictured is a cocktail using London dry gin infused (in his lab) with locally sourced dog fennel. The centre piece sees an olive sitting on ice clear as a crystal. And that's not just any olive - it is treated in house with Idog Fennel and lemon peel. Overall, the cocktail is botanical, herbaceous and a little savoury.
He makes complex yet well-balanced cocktails that are really good. There are also many cocktails in the "Illusions of Flavours" menu influenced by Jorge's love for the arts that stay true to the Smoke & Mirrors name.
