Mandarin Oriental, Singapore has unveiled its new bar concept – MO BAR, a chic new addition to Singapore’s dynamic bar scene.
The result of a unique collaboration with award-winning bar developers, Proof & Company, MO BAR is located on the hotel’s fourth floor with floor-to-ceiling views of Marina Bay.
Blueplate Studios by Wilson Associates has overseen the design, which has been inspired by the Pacific Ocean. The sophisticated décor incorporates travel artefacts, hand-carved wooden sculptures, etched metal panels and hand-woven tapestries. A distinctive bar counter takes centre stage and offers guests a front row seat from which to view the skilled mixology team in action.
The drinks menu has been created by Bar Manager Michele Mariotti, who has worked at many of Europe’s most esteemed bars. There are 14 cocktails available including ‘Coconut Beaches of Fiji’ with pisco, lychee cordial and carbonated coconut cream and ‘Mother of Dragons’ with strawberry aloe vera, red dragon fruit juice and cachaça. The list also includes mocktails, beers and wines, and a one-of-a-kind MO BAR Pilsner, developed in collaboration with local craft brewery, Archipelago.
Gourmet light bite highlights comprise ‘Indo-China Prawns with Masala Mayo’, ‘Singdog with Achar’ and the exquisite ‘Avocado’ dessert filled with avocado mousse and Gula Melaka ice cream. The hotel’s popular afternoon tea is also served daily, featuring artisan pastries and a myriad of accompanying local delights, with the personalised service for which Mandarin Oriental is renowned.
