Always wanted to do some serial bar hopping? There’s no better time to do it than during The Singapore Cocktail Week 2016, taking place between 12-19 March 2016.
This year’s Cocktail festival is twice as big with some 60 venues participating. During the 8-day festival, ticket holders get to try signature cocktails at participating bars at a discounted price of $14++ each. Cheaper drinks aside, ticket holders also get access to the opening party as well as other exclusive events during the period, in addition to a 10% discount on the workshops, bar tours, brunches and supper clubs.
The tickets come in the form of wristbands — a different colour for each day of the festival. The set of 8 wristbands costs $38. Get 15% discount if you book before noon, 29 February.
Here are 3 events at this year’s festival that really got us excited.
