Inspired by the Golden Age of cocktails and fine drinking, Manhattan is reminiscent of a grand hotel bar. It is modern with a touch of old New York glamour and sophistication which reminds us of The Great Gatsby!

Dimly lit with velvet couches and lamps that scream luxurious, this is the bar to visit if you feel like splurging on some artisanal spirits and classic and forgotten cocktails, plus the nice ambience.

Bare concrete walls and an insta-worthy light installation made up of thousands of bulbs to replicate the cloud will greet you upon stepping into Operation Dagger.

Something unique about it is that it's a hidden underground bar so one of the fun parts about going there for a drink is having to find where the actual bar is located. We will not spoil the fun for you so just read on to find out the address and go there with your friends!

Even the drinks served there are interesting - the menu only tells you the other ingredients used in the drink but doesn't disclose the type of alcohol infused. If you are up for a sensory experience, you need to head to Operation Dagger.

?7 Ann Siang Hill, #B1-01, Singapore 069791
⏰ Monday - Saturday: 6PM - 12AM, closed on Sunday
