Manhattan - Best Bar in Asia, #3 in the World
Local Information


Inspired by the Golden Age of cocktails and fine drinking, Manhattan is reminiscent of a grand hotel bar, modern yet with a touch of old New York glamour and sophistication. Choose your tipple from artisanal spirits, and classic and forgotten cocktails, meticulously crafted from the world’s first in-hotel rickhouse and a remarkable collection of house-made ingredients, accompanied by gourmet bar bites. Manhattan was recently awarded #3 in World’s 50 Best Bars and #1 in Asia’s 50 Best Bars.

The Rockefeller Room (seats up to 16)

Hidden behind a “secret” door and lined with ornate marquetry wallpaper tinted in silver blue tones, this uber-luxe space is reminiscent of private New York clubs in the 1920s. Settle into the plush tufted faux steel-blue suede banquette and enjoy this uniquely private experience. A dedicated service station ensures champagne glasses are never empty while our backlit Aged Negroni bottles guarantee you will never be short for inspiration.

The Rockefeller Room + Library (seats up to 30)

An intimate room for guests looking to escape the energy of the Main Salon, the Library is available in conjunction with the Rockefeller Room for parties exceeding 16 guests. Simply open the “secret” door. Timber paneling and lush green Italian velvet accents evoke quiet sophistication and a relaxed elegance that befits its name. 

The Private Salon (seats up to 12)

Tucked away from the Main Salon, this welcoming space oozes comfort with opulent Italian plum velvets and tan American leather seats amidst custom hand-tufted wool rugs. Be transported to 19th century New York while you sip on Singapore’s finest Bourbon. Perfect for intimate gatherings.

Philip Bischoff, Bar Manager

"Going in with 100% or not at all" has been Philip Bischoff's mantra since he first began his bartending journey. Living and breathing passion for the trade, Philip has led the award-winning Manhattan bar and its team to the world stage, earning a name in the big leagues as one of the World's Best Bars.

Philip honed his craft at Le Lion – Bar de Paris, which was awarded the ‘Best New International Bar at Tales of the Cocktail’. His career then took him to Amano Bar as the Bar Manager and under his stewardship, the bar was awarded the ‘Best Hotel Bar and Bar Team’ at the Mixology Bar Awards in Berlin. Now leading the team at Manhattan, Philip is all about the experience; the food, the ambience, the people and the service. A reputable bar which boasts a selection of inspired craft cocktails and gourmet bar food from the 1920s, Manhattan is where nightlife in Singapore, we believe, has been redefined.
