Cool gem of a space off Orchard Road that opens out onto a small alleyway, hence the name. Inside it’s a glamorous high-ceiling space with a distinctive L shape, making it feel like two bars in one. An excellent cocktail menu features martinis, mojitos and margaritas, and Asian dishes from the kitchen feature everything from dim sum to seafood dumplings. Trendy Cafe del Mar-style lounge music brings the scene back to a western style, which suits the ex-pats and hipster tourists who come here. Expect it to get a little loud later on when in-the-know locals arrive for last orders.
