Yes the prices are high here at this airport bar, as they are in Singapore in general. But as an Aussie, its not too much of a shock. Government taxes on alcohol are a joke in both countries unfortunately. The guy behind the bar here made THE BEST Bloody Mary I have ever had and Ive sampled a few all over the world. They use fresh cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs to make this amazing cocktail. Well done to the guys here doing their best. Its a tough gig getting chastised over the prices when they are not the ones setting them at the end of the day. Cheers guys.

We had a trAnsit stop in Singapore. We felt like a drink so we went to the World is Flat Bar, well what a rip off, $20 AUD for a small glass of cider! Most drinks were the same price. The staff were totally uninterested. No table service, you had to purchase the drinks from the bar and carry your drinks to the table yourself.

An absolute rip off - you need to be desperate to indulge at this bar!

Hi there, thanks for visiting us and sorry your experience didn't go as well as we would have hoped. I can understand the sticker shock if you're not used to Singapore alcohol prices. Unfortunately we have one of the highest alcohol taxes in the world, and while our bar is in the airport we are not duty-free (that's only applicable to retail unopened liquor). We match our pricing to comparable cocktail and craft beer bars in Singapore, and we believe we're offering strong value at that level (base price in the city doesn't include GST and service charge; that gets added at the end. Our pricing includes the tax and service charge so appear higher but in many cases is actually lower than the comparable city bars and other airport bars).

The low table lounge seating by us is operated by Changi Airport, and we're not able to provide table service there though we can understand how that would be more convenient for the diners. Certainly we want to be as hospitable as we possibly can, and I'm sorry the team didn't come through on that.

Thank you for trying us out though; we're all too familiar with how after a long flight one wants a drink to relax and I hope you'd consider us again in the future when you're flying through Changi.

The beer selection is good and plenty on tap...but it is let down by truly awful food. They had a burger and beer promotion so I ordered it...the burger arrived raw and had to be sent back, then it arrived cooked but totally flavourless and with meat that was gristly and poor quality...even the onions had no flavour.

For a beer come here, for food run away!

Hi there, we're very sorry about that! We make our patties in-house and then aim to cook them to medium, however it's clear we made it improperly this time. We'll follow up with our team to improve. Sorry again!

Stopped here for a bite of lunch while we waited for the lounge to open. We went for their burger and beer deal. The first burgers to arrive were bright pink still inside - dangerously undercooked. We sent them back and 15 minutes later we got replacement burgers. I took just two bites of the burger and got chewy gristle in each bite. That was enough for me - I’ll make sure never to eat here again. It’s a shame since the range of bees and ciders are good, but $20 for two goes with an inedible burger is unacceptable.
