Contrary to what you might think, not everyone who loves going to bars are there for the alcohol. Mocktails or non-alcoholic drinks are gaining popularity around the world for good reason. They look and taste just like the real thing but without the attached health consequences or hangover.
Melati, Asia's first premium non-alcoholic aperitif, has recently launched in Singapore and you can now experience their drinks at a new pop up bar. From this Friday, 4th December, there will be a Melati pop-up bar at Chinese speakeasy restaurant, The Dragon Chamber.

As Asia's first non-alcoholic aperitif, Melati Classic is the brand's first iteration, made from a blend of 26 healing and restorative botanicals.
Non-alcoholic highlights include the classic Melati Spritz, the perfect palate opener of Melati, grapefruit spritz and cucumber; and Spiced Nogroni, made of Melati, decaf coffee, bittersweet Chinotto, spiced juniper and expertly stirred and served over ice. If you prefer a cocktail, go for the festive Snowglobe — pandan vodka, Melati, lemon juice, or Singapore Christmas, a tropical delight of coconut, vodka, Melati and lime. All non-alcoholic cocktails are priced at $12 and alcoholic cocktails at $16.
The Melati pop-up will be on Friday and Saturday nights in December (except 25th & 26th) from 5pm. The first 20 guests every night will enjoy a Melati cocktail of their choice out on the house. All you have to do is show that you've followed @melatidrinks on Instagram.
The pop-up bar will be in The Dragon Chamber, a stunning old Chinatown-themed restaurant known for their secret entry way disguised as an unassuming fridge door of a cafe.
The restaurant has a dim ambience reminiscent of gambling dens and secret society hangouts with dramatic illustrations of Chinese dragons on the walls.
On the menu is guerrilla-style food inspired by unconventional Chinese dishes in the olden days.
The Dragon Chamber
Address: 2 Circular Rd, Singapore 049358
