This Romantic Spanish Bar In Singapore Has A Ceiling Of Roses & Rose-Themed Cocktails
Here's a suggestion: Que Pasa. This wine and tapas bar will make you feel like you're on a romantic getaway somewhere in Spain. They also have a gorgeous rose-shaped drink served on a plate of rose petals.

First opened way back in 1995 and located in a charming 1910 Peranankan shophouse, the first floor of Que Pasa resembles a Spanish provision shop with tins of anchovies, olives, marinated vegetables and 2000 wine bottles.
Covering the ceiling are hanging red roses. Coupled with the dim lighting and old-school interiors, the bar has a wonderfully dreamy ambience.
Dark woods, green wall panelling and arched doorways give the bar a quaint look and warm & cosy vibes - perfect for a romantic time with bae or quality time with friends over wine and tapas.
One wall is covered in large mirrors reflecting the roses for selfie opportunities.
The first floor is Instagrammable at every angle whether you're standing by the stairs, in the middle of the bar or seated at a corner. Just angle the camera lens up to capture the ceiling of roses!
On the second level is the Hendricks Bar which also has swoon-worthy Spanish vibes.
Que Pasa offers a variety of 60 wines from all over the world including sherry, brandy, port and Havana Cigars, as well as their signature fruit based wine punch, white and red Sangria.
One of their signature drinks is the Rose Avalanche ($28), an IG-worthy gin and tonic served on a plate of real rose petals.
The gin and tonic is poured over the "rose", melting it and giving the drinks a delicate flavour. We preferred the rose flavour (red) for its sweetness but the osmanthus (white) will appeal to those who like that bittersweet taste.
The bar also has a pretty extensive tapas menu. To be honest, we were expecting the food to be like typical bar fare - just so-so, but their signature QP Pizza ($22) proved us wrong right away.
The thin crust was crispy but not hard, topped with fresh rocket and thin slices of moist parma ham that had just the right amount of saltiness.
Next, we tried the Pan Con Anchoas ($12). The subtle anchovy flavour gave the ciabatta toast a slightly salty flavour but thankfully without any fishiness.
For something meaty, you can't go wrong with the Fresh Chorizo Sausage with tomato coulis ($14). The sausage was succulent and a teensy bit spicy which complimented the tangy tomato sauce.
A traditional Spanish dish that was new to us was the Huevos Estrellados Con Jamon ($25), a dish made of eggs and Iberico Ham Bellota Paleta on a bed of fries. The way to enjoy this dish is to mash up the egg and ham into little pieces to go with the fries. We imagine this simple yet satisfying dish would be the perfect comfort food after a stressful day at work.
Final verdict: this is one of those places where you'll come for the IG pics and stay for the food. Although we went with high expectations for Que Pasa's rose-themed ambience and rose cocktails, we left reminiscing about the food quality that's actually worth coming for a proper lunch or dinner.
