Launched on the inaugural Singapore Sling Day, June 27, the third Slingology series is kicking off next Sunday with exquisite cocktail creations from ATLAS - one of Singapore’s grand cocktail bars located in the rich-heritage neighbourhood of Bugis and ranked No 7 on Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2021.

On Sunday from 3 pm to 9 pm, bartenders of ATLAS Lauren Sosnowsky and Lee Rosli will take centre-stage in a special appearance behind the bar as they celebrate the launch of this exciting month-long collaboration. 

The ATLAS will present its own rendition of the iconic Singapore Sling; Green Perruches, featuring an elegant concoction of Raffles 1915 Gin, Green Chartreuse and Elderflower.

Two signature cocktails from the bar’s carefully curated collection, ATLAS Martini and Baroque Pearl, will also be on the menu in homage to the iconic Long Bar.

Amid the pandemic, Raffles Hotel Singapore will maintain the highest hygiene standards to safeguard the health and wellbeing of all their guests and staff. Guests can be reassured that all public spaces and restaurants have been reconfigured to facilitate safe distancing and there is a strict adherence policy in place to HACCP principles for food preparation and hygiene, an official statement read.

The Slingology series will continue with award-winning local bars like Studio 1939 at Potato Head from October 31 to  November 27 and Junior The Pocket Bar from November 28 to December 25.
