Bars We Love:: Atlas - Singapore

by Negronis Greg

Atlas is a stunning Art Deco-inspired bar located in Singapore, renowned for its impressive collection of over 1,300 different gins and its carefully crafted cocktails. The bar is a must-visit for those seeking a unique drinking experience in the city.

Atlas was founded in 2017 by Jason Williams and his team, who wanted to create a space that celebrated the golden age of cocktail making. The bar takes its name from the iconic Atlas statue that stands outside the Rockefeller Center in New York City, which symbolizes strength and endurance.

One of the hallmarks of Atlas is its commitment to providing an exceptional experience for its guests. The bar's luxurious decor features towering shelves filled with rows upon rows of gin bottles, giving the space an impressive and elegant ambiance. Atlas has won numerous awards since opening, including being named the Best Bar in Asia at the World's 50 Best Bars awards in 2019.

Atlas is most famous for its extensive gin collection, which features bottles from all over the world, some of which date back over a century. The bar's gin tower is an impressive sight to behold, with bottles arranged in rows and columns that reach towards the ceiling. The team at Atlas is passionate about gin, and they are always eager to share their knowledge and help guests discover new and exciting gins to try.

In addition to its gin collection, Atlas also offers a range of carefully crafted cocktails that highlight the flavors and aromas of its various gins. One of the most popular drinks at Atlas is the Atlas Martini, made with gin, Ambrato vermouth, and orange bitters. The bar also offers a range of classic and modern cocktails, as well as an impressive selection of wines and spirits.

One of the key figures behind Atlas's success is its head bartender, Jesse Vida. Vida, who has worked at some of the world's top bars, including Dead Rabbit in New York City, is known for his innovative approach to cocktail making and his ability to create unique and unforgettable drinks. He was named Bartender of the Year at the Bar Awards Singapore in 2018.
