Singapore Cocktail Week returns this March 12 to 19 to shake up the city state’s cocktail scene with the cream of international bartending for its second edition.

Over 60 bars, from local heavyweights 28 Hong Kong Street and Operation Dagger to the iconic Raffles Hotel are set to participate in a weeklong program of almost 200 cocktail-themed events. These include masterclasses and guest shifts from internationally-renowned bartenders, food-forward events such as cocktail brunches, dinners and supperclubs, and industry insight at cocktail workshops and salons. It’s not all business, though, as there plenty of pop-ups and parties planned too.

Singapore will play host to some of the biggest names in bartending, from Asia and around the world. Hidetsugu Ueno from Bar High Five in Tokyo, Nick Wu from East End in Taipei and Thai bar superstar Ronnaporn Pornstar will be among those representing the region, while PDT’s Jim Meehan, Nightjar’s Martina Breznanova, The Gibson London pair of Marian Beke and Rusty Cerven, and Erick Castro from Polite Provisions and Boilermaker are just some of the participants from across the globe.
