About
Complementing its interior design that celebrates the glamour of train travel, the beverage concept at Origin Bar centres around a journey of discovery. 18 curated cocktails speak of the spirit of travelling through time, each one focusing on a specific invention or dream of a certain era. Reminisce on birthed dreams with complex, intense and bold flavours from cocktails like Dark Matters and Play Well, where piquancy builds up. See the evolution of a want that became a need, with Call Me A Doctor and a Star was P*rn, highlighting flavours with a zest for life; and marvel over timeless creations through the concoction of Chicle and Happy. Discover these stories of moments in time on a journey with us and raise a toast to the roads travelled and the road paved by Life itself. It’s time to begin at Origin Bar.

    Great ambient and interesting cocktails
    Fantastic ambience, great and interesting range of cocktails! Friendly, competent and attentive staffs. Friends and I had quite a few drinks which was excellently explained to us each and every time they served the drinks. They even sang birthday song to our 2 birthdays. Great work to Yvonne, Ado, Nyien, Aki and Muss (I hope I got all ur names right 😅) keep up the good work! Really an enjoyable experience!

    A must visit
    If you love good cocktails with a flair for posh ambiance, this is the bar for you. The menu is so beautifully designed, it engrossed you like a good book and makes it very hard to choose which one to start with. The hospitality is very attentive and kind and the smoke nuts they served as bar snack was fab too! All in all- this one is a must go. Make a reservation in advance.

Food was great - my personal favorites: crab cake & the baked Camembert. Drinks were fun and tasty too!
Highlight: The team at the Origin was attentive, fun and I gotta say, they are so presentable (their uniforms are soo chic & nice!).
Rishi was also really cool, not only was he super kind, took amazing photos for us, he also had a great sense of humor.

These are my closest friends who are visiting after many years due to Covid. Thanks for making the memorable night extra special. You guys are the best.

Abonis, Yvonne, Muss and all were super amazing. They actually added life to this bar. Out of four days of our stay at the hotel. We ended up coming to this bar three times because they made us feel comfortable welcomed and treated us with lots of warmth. They were very professional and super friendly, and went extra miles to keep us happy.

When it comes to drinks at times origin bar seems a one way choice, friendly, classy, warm, amazing cocktails, good music and a melting pot where people meet and get together. I find it hard to source something similar in Singapore, I have tried other places but most certainly I would end up in origin by 11 o clock that I really feel like having a good drink.

Origin Bar, Shangri-La Hotel: I oft liken The Shang at Orchard to Jackie Collins donning new younger garb. The shell is old. It had its hey days in the 80s or 90s. It has facelifts here and there and Origin Grill and Bar is the establishment to up the cool and stylish factor. I have scribbled a few lines on Origin Grill prior, I thought the food was disappointing years before. But now it has up the ante. I was apprehensive about the food at Origin Bar, even planning dinner prior elsewhere before we head here for the really fun creative cocktails. But thankfully, you can order from Origin Grill and give the paltry bar menu a miss. You’re really here for the cocktail extravanganza, theatrics and dramatics. We had Peanut Butter Therapy - the best in terms of showmanship. The glass gets an atomising rinse in the atomiser and then the peanut butter cocktail is poured into it. Star P*rn is ladies’ favourite - and squeamishly fun - it comes with a lipstick edible white chocolate. Atomico is bubble fun - you couldn’t resist sticking your finger in for the final poof. There’s also the good ol’ Old Fashion and one off the menu - After the beat (I may get the name wrong) which comes with a book and quill one to leave your afterthoughts forever burnt in legacy of the book ownership. Stellar food line-up includes tuna tartare, beef tartare, snapper fish on a bed of sauce delish and the gorgeous scallops doused in clear broth which is the winner. The bar is sultry sexy and sophisticated. Get the corner black plush booth seat curtained up. It feels like a vegas show time VIP seat. Let the fun begin. #eatstylishtravelstylish
