Anti:dote is the seriously stylish lobby bar and restaurant at the Fairmont Singapore. It’s recently had a bit of a revamp and is even brighter and lighter now, with striking light fittings and an emphasis on elegant detail. It’s an attractive space with tiled floors and slender bar stools at which to perch with a flute of fizz or a well-mixed cocktail. There’s an emphasis on modern and progressive drinks here, hand-crafted tipples, well made to classic recipes. Premium spirits, aromatic herbs and house-made bitters are the order of the day. It’s that kind of place. The bar even has its own herb garden and the dapper bartenders clearly know their stuff. There’s some good things going on in the open kitchen too, including a menu of creative tapas-style dishes to accompany your drink. A glorious afternoon tea in the adjoining restaurant is an event in and of itself.
