Opened by the owners of neighbouring bespoke cocktail bar Jigger & Pony, Sugarhall promises to be a more fun, laid-back dining and drinks space. A great place for a round of drinks; Sugarhall is the first-ever rum destination in Singapore to showcase over 50 types of cane spirits under one roof. Happy hour is only between 6pm and 7.30pm, so make a rum for it if you want great deals on rum-based cocktails and bar bites. The unorthodox playlist of vintage Latin, old-school ska, and Jamaican reggae is the cherry on top of this lively cocktail bar.
