Booking is highly suggested. They have limited space. Good vibes. the music is loud so dance and speak up. Cocktails are on the average of $25++. Service was 👌🏼 they would check on you and make sure your drinks are ok. Even if it isn’t they would try their best to tweak it. Will definitely return. Spent $83 on 3 cocktails (old fashion, really old fashion and old malt or something)

Loved our drinks, the good service and cozy atmosphere! Such a hidden gem in town :-)

Definitely not in the best spot to take pictures (was sitting at the bar table) but definitely enjoy seeing how all the cocktails are made and they are all amazing and insta-worthy.

Staffs here are friendly, personable and gave good advice on what to drink. Was asking for something refreshing yet looks ‘wow’ and I was given this cocktail in chinese vase! Enjoy all the small chats here with them and the vibes a lot.

Be sure to make a reservation before coming in - even the door cannot be easily found, this is a very popular place even during weekdays!

So 1st order of returning back to Singapore is to have a round of cocktails in this hidden bar, whereby you literally had to ring to enter. The setup is dark, but inviting with lush seats and a bar table. Small but absolutely cosy.

Before you start, you’re being served with a complimentary coffee alcohol shot. That was yummy; dark, velvety and chocolatey.

Each drink is stunning, which each alcohol base shine brightly, unmasked. Whiskey based is very smokey, while the reserved Gin and Tonic is very refreshing as they made their tonic water by themselves, and before serving they lightly smoked the drink, making it very refreshing, opening up the taste palette.

But my personal favourite (last picture) is the “midnight in Paris”. Sweet, foamy and gentle, it feels like a drink to have looking at the Eiffel Tower, in its splendid at night.

I’ll definitely come back for more, because of the knowledgeable and friendly, and most definitely warm staff who gave use another ending shot of champagne cocktail (on the house). Making this visit like visiting an old friend at their humble home.

Recommended for this drink because we were looking for something sweet, and turns out we both like it. Taste like a peach yogurt, this is a drink which suits all the girls. A lot of interesting quotes on the wall and interesting cocktails you can see from the menu. Recommended!

It's recipe is a riff on the original Lucien Gaudin cocktail - a tribute to one of the most decorated French Olympic medalists- itself a Frenchified version of the negroni, which has made quite the comeback in recent times.

When the bartender presents my cocktail, I'm perplexed to see only an empty misted glass served with a hardcover copy of Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland. Only uponing opening the book do I find the steel hipflask containing my drink cleverly concealed within. It's little flourishes and showmanship like this that make visiting bespoke bars a worthwhile experience. So down the rabbit hole we go.

I like my cocktails to pack a punch and while The Other Room certainly delivers on this front, I never thought I would have uttered the words "too strong", as was the case with my tipple.

Astringent bitterness from the gin, dry vermouth, campari and orange bitters proved slightly overwhelming and might have benefitted from the mellowing effects of Cointreau used in the Lucien Gaudin or perhaps even sweet vermouth found in the original negroni.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @theotherroomsg for the excellent service!

Taste: 3/5
