Art Deco in the grandest fashion
As stated on their site, "a grand lobby and bar, ATLAS graces the ground floor of Singapore’s iconic building, Parkview Square, in the historic Bugis neighbourhood. Completed in 2002, Parkview Square was the crowning glory of developer CS Hwang, the late chairman of the Chyau Fwu Group. Today, the Hwang family are breathing new life into the property to bring its exceptional spirit into the 21st Century."
It was created as a private wine club for Mr. Hwang but is now an extraordinary place the public can enjoy the finest in martinis, cocktails, coffee and tea from a collection of rare wines and whiskeys not to mention collected gin from every decade dating back many, many years. We went for afternoon tea, and it really knocked our socks off in the selection of goodies presented. See below!
Savory on bottom, sweets on top...that's gin in a tube to squeeze into a shot glass packed with coconut ice but the rest of the spread is very kid friendly...including the post afternoon tea course which were the tastiest ice cream pops we've ever experienced! (There's also a delectable amuse bouche served before the tiered tea goodies.)
The bartenders can make anything you ask for but their cocktail menu is pretty exceptional and thoughtfully respectful of the extensive collection of every intoxicant you can imagine. They have fine menus for a full lunch and dinner to match, too.
There's even a museum with rotating fine art exhibits with free admission on the third floor and heirloom items from pieces collected and used back when it was a private wine lounge showcased throughout the place.
