The new cool bar in Holland Village

We scour the bar scene to bring you the new and noteworthy. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it! Rebecca Bisset heads to Drinks & Co in Holland Village to taste their great selection of wines and yummy food.

First impressions:

Compared with the rest of the line-up at Holland Village, Drinks & Co is a bit cooler, in both style and concept. Like its sister outlet on Club Street, in lieu of a drinks list the bar has an expansive shelf of liquor (mostly boutique brands) from which you can choose a bottle to purchase and then drink at the bar.

The Chosen One:

Buying by the bottle can be a bit of a gamble, but our red was exceptional – a Quarter Acre Syrah from New Zealand ($52). With wine starting from $35, it’s good value; spirits by the bottle start at $65. There are also beers by Crossroads (brewed here in Singapore), plus ales and lagers. They’ve even got cool little boutique gins!

The Cheapskate:

During happy hour (Saturday to Thursday until 8pm, and Fridays until 7pm), a glass of house wine is $7 and a pint of draft beer is $9; or get five beers for $35.

Bite on this:

It was really good to get something different from the standard deep-fried bar food; French chef Adama Koita delivers on good quality and healthier options. The large portioned tuna tartar with avocado ($16) was delicious, as were the little New Zealand lamb chops ($15) that melted in the mouth. Later, we hit the amazing and not-so-healthy Margherita pizza ($20) – yum!

Last but not least:

They’ve just started serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays; the menu includes items like the avocado and feta smash ($14) and the Chef’s Big Breakfast ($20). Can’t wait to try it out!
