    Nutmeg & Clove, located on the ground floor of a former Cantonese shophouse, is a handsome place (once you can find it), all marble top tables and dark wood banquettes. There’s a large carved Chinese signboard above the counter, various wooden screens, and even a collection of mini-rickshaws which have been used as drinks-holders, all nods to the neighbourhood’s Sino-Singaporean background. The inventive, exciting cocktail list is the work of Taiwanese bar manager Kae Yin and head bartender Alvin Au Yong. Marian Beke, of acclaimed London bar Nightjar (one of our faves) also consulted on the menu. Their take on the classic Singapore Sling pairs Tanqueray with aged red date syrup. The Commodity Flip blends lapsang souchong tea with cognac and port to winning effect. The bar tenders are seriously dapper in attire and clearly know their stuff, while the food menu is international in influence with plates including nutmeg laced tortellini mac & cheese and truffle spiked hummus, both of which tick our boxes.

    Martini: know your Dry from your Dirty The Martini is to drinking what the two-step is to dance: great its own but also a solid base with which to experiment. Any discerning drinker worth their salt (or olive brine) should have at least a passing acquaintance with it.
