About
Complementing its interior design that celebrates the golden age travel and nostalgic charm of train stations, the cocktail concept at Origin Bar centres around a journey of discovery of the six key districts in Singapore: Orchard Road, Chinatown, Little India, Boat Quay, Marina Bay and Balestier, which was introduced to the menu this year. Each of the 18 cocktails in the menu is a reflection of the city’s illustrious history of bountiful trade and tropical splendour.

Awesome bar. Worth the trip.
Jun 2021 • Solo
I do love my rum so it’s great to find a bar so well and thoughtfully stocked with great rums for all palates and wallets.
But I also love a well run bar. Friendly staff. Comfortable furniture. Decent food. All the simple elements that well done combine to create a great experience.
Origin may be a ‘hotel bar’ but it’s much much more. And it may be a bit off the beaten path it it’s so so worth it.

Fine dining and drinks - Lovely couple date with my wife
Mar 2021 • Couples
We often visit the Shangri-La bars and restaurants in Singapore and Sentosa because we are always pleased by the quality of the service and the F&B.

It was our first try at Origins Bar though. I can’t believe we didn’t know about this hidden gem.
My wife and I went for cocktails and special 6-course dinner with wine pairing.
We had a lovely romantic table in an alcove but started at the bar... and the bartender Adonis was such great company and a talented mixologist so we decided to spend our entire evening at the bar!
The meals are as fresh as you can expect in any Shangri-La fine dining restaurants. We took some extra sliders like oysters and foie gras with caviar, priced very reasonably.
The crowd is very distinguished and that made the experience even more special for my wife and myself.
The wine pairing is really cheap (69 dollars I think for 6 glasses starting by champagne and covering all the continents from NZ to Uruguay).
We closed the evening with an amazing special reserve Tanduay Filipino rhum that was charges only 22 dollars for a quality similar to the most prestigious ones. They have 300 different rhums, for those who love it.
Thank you Adonis for enhancing an already amazing evening. Thank you as well to Emily for your bubbly and professional attitude and to the gentleman expert in rhum who conveyed precious advice (I can’t remember his name - apologies).

We already plan to return for our anniversary in May.

Even Ricard!

Wonderful bar with the most amazing selection of drinks. The bar staff were amazing. Ricard? No problem. Fantastic place. Real buzz. Great place for a nightcap. Not your average hotel bar! Best we used in Singapore.

A sublime intimate Bar devised to keep you coming back for more.
Jan 2020
Origin Bar @Shangri La Hotel Singapore - Cocktails inspired by ingredients present in various districts in Singapore back in the olden days. Lost count of the number of times I visited this Hidden Gem.

What left me impressed is how the Team can remember your drinking preference, and even suggest drinks individually curated to perfection. A plus point is that, you can even order your favourite Japanese Wagyu from the Restaurant next door and eat in a less formal environment.

Origin Bar has also extended their RUM Collection to a total of 350 Labels. (Probably the biggest collection in Asia).

Keep it Up Team!
All the best to:
Camille - The Bebot (Full of knowledge and hardworking gal)
Eunji - The Korean Barbie (Always makes you feel comfortable and at ease)
Nigel - The Boss Baby (Young chap, silent worker).
Qing Ting - The Cutie. (The rising Bartender from Malaysia)
Adonis - The Menace, (Always full of Charm, finest and style)
Bystrik - The Slovakian Superstar (The crazy filthy animal)
Adam - The Legendary Rum Guru.

Till next time.
