There is always something different and quirky on the cocktail scene in Singapore. It might be stumbling onto a secret bar, discovering an amazing new combination of ingredients at an old favourite, or perhaps there’s some fascinating twist in the presentation that gives you pause.
The Library was one of the original secret bars here, and it tries to keep things fresh by regularly changing the look of the ‘shop’ through which you go (if you can find the password) on your way inside.
It isn’t so secret anymore, although the atmosphere and the cocktails are just as great. What makes it special right now is the trouble you have deciphering the menu.
At first it just looks like pages of random and meaningless squiggles. You have to pay attention to the cover, and pull apart what looks to be a decorative plastic edging but is actually the key to the code.
A bit like half the special glasses you need to watch a 3D movie, the red plastic strip makes the letters hidden on the page stand out, and suddenly all becomes clear and everyone is laughing.
I love this place, and cannot wait to see what they come up with next.
