Dario Knox would have probably been an Italian-English translator today, if he didn’t take up bartending as a means to pay for his school fees.
We’re glad for it too. With his creativity, he ended up winning bartending competitions and moving to Singapore to start the FOC Group, which owns The Other Room.
He treats The Other Room as his own laboratory to create unique cocktails that he infuses and finishes himself with casks and spices. The cocktails are beautiful, both in presentation and flavour, as they’re made with all sorts of ingredients, such as spices, roots, coffees, fruits, and even barks.
What to try: Since there are so many different types of drinks available, ask the bartender for a recommendation. But if you want a bit of fun, get the passport ($10) which requires thirty chops (one chop for each drink you buy) to unlock a drink from the secret menu. We can’t say what drinks are on the menu though, you’ll have to find out yourself!
Location: The Other Room is at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel,320 Orchard Rd.
