With a menu inspired by America’s 19th century’s hedonistic golden age of cocktails; this pop-up will be Manhattan’s first in London. Senior bartenders Kelvin Lomeda Saquilayan and Yeonju Kang, working in partnership with 34 Mayfair’s expert bar team, have designed a ten strong cocktail menu for 34 Singapore.

There’s no prizes for guessing its signature drink – two-time No.1 bar. Bar manager Philip Bischoff mixes a magnificent Manhattan using Michter’s US1 Straight Rye whisky.

He continued: “I’m very excited for London to have the chance to visit Manhattan at 34 Mayfair, our 34 Mexico pop up with Licoreria Limantour last summer was a huge success, and we expect the same to be true of 34 Singapore.”
