    Dragon's Back Cocktail

The buzz: The bar at the Hullett House hotel, in the swanky remake of the historical marine police headquarters building in TST.

The décor: Refurbished with the inimitable hands-on bravura of Aqua Group mastermind David Yeo, the kitschy-chic Dragon Bar sits betwixt the equally droll west and east dining rooms, and looks like an exotic dive in 70s London Chinatown. Swirling dragons and Chinese lanterns rest underneath a theatrically pink sunset sky. Do sit outside on the beautiful terrace—with the fabulous colonial architecture and the tropical palms in the garden out front (ignore the monstrosity that is the Cultural Centre), and who needs to go to Singapore?

The drinks: Hullettinis (gin or vodka with an olive or a twist), the Buttercello (Absolut Vanilla, limoncello, butterscotch schnapps, pineapple and pepper) and we all love their signature cocktail, the deadly but delicious Dragon’s Back (a potent blend of vodka, champagne, lychee liqueur and fresh strawberry, garnished with dragon fruit).

The crowd: Definitely the place to entertain foreign flitterati, spies and jet-setting shoppers alike.

Why you’ll be back: It’s like Raffles, but sexy.
