MO Bar Singapore, World’s 50 Best Bars 2021 No. 36 – Vol. IV Menu

MO Bar Singapore, World's 50 Best Bars 2021 Ranked No. 36 – Volume IV Menu Launch

Following its recent accolade as #36 in World’s 50 Best Bars 2021, MO BAR at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore introduces its newest creative cocktail menu, with a completely new design approach for Volume Four. 

For this new menu, MO BAR continues with the nomadic journey throughout the Asia Pacific trend and the cocktails will not disappoint you. For the preview of the menu, some media were invited to taste the cocktails in the menu, but to also build the menu. Yes… to build it! A great way to introduce the new design, going away from its original booklet format. The designer has gone a whole new direction creating a award-winning worthy design for the Volume Four. With a unique new presentation, the Volume Four menu is fashioned in a sphere-shaped style, taking guests to new destinations with an illustrated 3D globe that introduces the collection of cocktails. The attention to detail at every facet creates a transportive effect, with whimsical designs and components to indicate the style, strength, and country of inspiration for each drink. Don’t worry, as a guest, you will have it already made to choose the cocktail of your liking.

The first several non-alcoholic drinks, designed as part of an inclusive and memorable  drinking experience, are also presented with an add-on spirit available upon request. Starting  the journey by foot at familiar locations while relishing the natural spoils from nature, the  Lakeside from Sri Lanka, is a Kombucha based beverage with fragrant lemongrass and spices served in a ceramic mug (SG$14/24 with rum). Hiking up a mountain range in  Taiwan opens a magnificent scenery with Formosan, a rich mix of coffee and coconut cream  served hot and cold on a coaster made from recycled grounded coffee beans (SG$16/26 with whiskey). Treat yourself to Ube from the Philippines, a soothing medley of purple  yam, jackfruit and ice cream as you bolster confidence to set off on your new adventure (SG$16/26 with whisky). 

Celebrate life for its beauty and diversity of cultures with highlights from the rest of the menu  including Holi, bringing a dazzling display with gin, buttermilk and spices inspired by India’s  festival of colours (SG$24), and Afterglow, an infusion of gin, ginger and melted candy floss  detailing the hues from the best sunset spots from Indonesia (SG$27). Explore the rich  hawker culture of Singapore with the smoky Satay by the Bay, blending flavours of gin,  bitters and satay, borrowing hints from the Southeast Asian dish of seasoned and skewered  meat dipped in peanut sauce (SG$25). From South Korea comes the harmonious rice paper  rum cocktail, Full Moon, perfectly matching the sweetness of Asian pear with hints of  refreshing wheatgrass (SGD 26). As you reminisce the beautiful moments of life’s journey with loved ones, sip on Nostalgia, a decadent mix of cognac, banana and caramel inspired by  local Vietnamese produce (SG$7).
