As the name implies, this place isn’t fancy. The furniture is pretty basic and it’s the kind of place with no signage located in a somewhat dubious building (underneath a ‘spa’), but that’s part of its appeal as Ah Sam’s is one of Singapore latest ‘underground’ cocktail bars. Owned by one of the top mixologists at Jigger & Pony on Amoy Street, the cocktails here are quality. It’s a relatively small venue with just 8 coveted seats around the bar and a couple of long wooden benches on which to sit. The entire place could probably accommodate 20-30 people max which at least means it’s never crowded. Drinks are well-made and they serve a great range of classic tipples. Things like an Old Fashioned, an Old Pal, a stiff, well-mixed Martini, and a superior Sazerac. The Blood and Sand here is a winner but most drinks are good enough to hit the spot.
