Join Aperol’s First Bar Crawl In Singapore Ft. Cocktails, Food Pairings & Panama Hats
Running out of weekend adventures? Here’s one perfect for you and your drinking buddies. Catch up with your best girlfriends over refreshing glasses of spritz at Aperol’s #JoinTheJoy bar crawl, happening across the first two weekends of July—2, 3, 9, and 10.
The first of its kind in the Lion City, the bar crawl will be a localised version of the ones that have been held in bustling cities like Berlin and Munich. For the uninitiated, the Aperol Spritz is basically an aperitif paired with prosecco, soda water, and an orange slice. A classic thirst quencher for lovers of Italian cocktails, it promises to keep you cool in Singapore’s tropical heat.
Drink seekers can embark on either a self-guided bar crawl that will have them explore five participating bars at their own pace or take it up a notch with a guided aperitivo experience—food pairings included. These will take place within four key districts; Bayfront, Chinatown, East Coast, and Riverwalk.
Priced at $72.50 per pax, the self-guided bar crawl lets you pick one of the four above-mentioned districts. For instance, the Bayfront Pass kicks off at Da Paolo Gastronomia and takes you down a scenic route with stops including Picotin Waterboat House and Vue.
Meanwhile, the Chinatown Pass lets you drink your way along the Keong Saik neighbourhood, with pit stops including The Guild and Pocket Rocket. Those with the East Coast Pass will be checking out the quaint Little Italy and the Caribbean-inspired Lime House.
If you’ve got the Riverwalk Pass, expect to visit the buzzy Boat Quay area including bars like Rosso Vino, as well as The Kongsee. Each self-guided bar crawl pass includes five glasses of Aperol Spritz and a goodie bag of accessories.
Those with hearty appetites will appreciate the guided aperitivo experience, which has two maps per Saturday, each with three venues to explore and three sets of food pairings with three glasses of Aperol Spritz.
Priced at $132 for min. two pax, this experience is inspired by the Veneto-born tradition of pairing spritz with classic Italian snacks. The package comes with mineral water to keep you hydrated, panama hats, sunglasses, and drawstring bags for Insta-worthy moments.
Highlights include Potato Head Singapore’s decadent servings of Naughty Fries or Miso Dirty Fries; Alegria’s vegan take on Chicharones featuring battered mushrooms; as well as The Guild’s Crispy Chicken, which comes dusted with spice.
Those in the mood to party ought to get their hands on the tickets asap, as the first 100 ticket holders will score themselves invites to the opening party on June 30 at Aperol Spritz Garden in Hotel Indigo, Katong. Expect complimentary welcome drinks and snacks, all-night happy hour cocktails and spritz, a live DJ set, as well as drinking games.
