WHY HERE: This glitzy basement bar is not afraid of a little a little drama. There’s nothing that’s doesn’t shine bright about this relative new kid on the Singapore scene. From the massive art-installation-style tangle of dangling light bulbs to painstakingly crafted drinks, no creative stone (big or small) is left unturned. WHY NOW: Lots of bars pride themselves on innovation, but Operation Dagger knows the devil really is in the details. In turn, the bar team never misses a step on craftsmanship, service or unexpected ingredients, like fermented cherry tomato or charred corn. And don’t be alarmed if you see someone pull out tweezers to garnish your drink.
