Ah Sam Cold Drink Stall
May 11, 2018
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.
