10. Operation Dagger

Operation Dagger was voted as the Best New Bar at the Singapore Bar Awards, but you wouldn’t know it at first glance. Hidden in a basement along a back alley, finding the bar is an adventure in itself since there are no signs showing you the way. The bar décor is equally nondescript, with cryptic drawings labelling the bottles, and minimal design elements other than a few bar stools and ceiling lights. Looks aren’t everything though, as the drinks on offer are creatively concocted with unorthodox ingredients, suitable for an adventurous palate.
