SINGAPORE BAR

Gibson

Taking the raw-seafood-and-cocktail concept a notch higher

The folks at Jigger and Pony seem to like Bukit Pasoh Road a lot. First it was oyster bar Humpback, then came whisky bar Flagship. Completing the triumvirate is Gibson, a cocktail and raw seafood bar that opened in October. The decor is upscale speakeasy, with marble top tables, a geometric stained glass bar facade and retro-chic glassware.

The 60-cocktail menu is divided into Findind Comfort (easy classics), Forging Friendship (complex flavor combos) and Sharing Happiness (stuff to drink abundantly all night) and Reserve (made with top-shelf stuff). The house cocktail, The Gibson ($24), is a smooth mix of Hendrick’s, Monkey 47 and Dolin vermouth. It comes with a house-pickled onion, of course, along with a quail's egg and smoked radish. Also intriguing is the potent Crimson Bullet ($24), with Don Julio white tequila, Alipus mezcal, fennel-y Kummel, beetroot and lime. Drinks mostly hover around $22-25, except in the Reserve section. $90 Sazerac anyone?

Foodwise, it's raw, raw and more raw, with the brief menu divided into ceviche, tartare, crudo and carpaccio ($22-130. Try the Maine lobster ceviche ($42), with almond, avocado, apple and radish; and the crab and steak tartare ($40) with oyster aioli and beetroot.
