Nutmeg & Clove has a cool and neat look, with a chill ambience. Polite and friendly service crew together with a young positive bartender attending to our needs. I absolutely love the furnishing and decor, with an upbeat yet soft music playing throughout.
The cocktails are interesting, coupled with a booklet full of Singapore landmarks, detailed with descriptions that inspired each cocktail. The cocktails served to us looked fabulous and tasted great, it’s a pity the capacity wasn’t a lot.
We tried the mala sweet potato fries, it was a great appetiser, super cute yummy. Will definitely visit again, I love its vibes!

Really friendly atmosphere with awesome drinks
The staff made us feel like this place was our local and we really enjoyed our time there. The drinks were good and the story behind them (in the menu) made them even more special. Staff were friendly and looked like they were genuinely having a good time. Can't ask for more than that. Would happily go back next time I'm in SG.

"Ok" but overrated
Music is terrible, drinks are ok (you can find same quality or better in almost 30 places in SG), food is "yellow food" only, it's tiny. I mean it's ok but pretty overrated, specially for the "kind of places" you have to make a deposit first.

On the top 50 best bars in Asia? I disagree.
Tried to order a popular cocktail, not available. Then settled on one, it took 35 minutes to arrive. And it was really basic. I tried my friend's cocktail, barely any alcohol in there. Tasted like sprite. Really basic. Everything took forever. And what's up with that guy's photo in the washroom?

Good but Forgettable
Qualitative cocktails, adequate service but the staff seem disengaged with their guests. If not for this Chope prompt for feedback, I would have forgotten about the place.
Nutmeg & Clove has consistently been named among the World’s & Asia’s Best by the most knowledgeable and traveled members of the bar industry, drinks media, and mixology experts from across Asia and the world.

After not being able to open for almost 300 days due to Covid Restrictions in 2020 and holding of a
bar license, Multi Award Winning Cocktail Bar Nutmeg & Clove has moved to a brand new location with a new Modern Singaporean (Mod-Sin) Cocktail & Cocktail Program with a Restaurant and Bar License.
The design of the new venue is a totally different look & feel from before. Adapting a modern and brighter ambience, Nutmeg & Clove strives to give consumers a different drinking experience.
Nutmeg & Clove’s new home will be in Purvis Street, a historical area in Singapore that used to house the early Chinese settlers back in the late 1800s and 1900s.
Nutmeg & Clove will continue to conceptualize a cocktail program with the heavy influence of Singaporean and Asian flavours like they did since they opened in 2014. The new cocktail menu;
Mythical Animal Stories is inspired by the 12 Chinese Zodiac which is celebrated especially in the Lunar New Year.
With a full kitchen set up, Nutmeg & Clove has collaborated with Celebrity Chef Willin Low, founder of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant Wild Rocket, Relish, Roketto Izakaya & Roketto Niseko with him coming on board as Culinary Consultant. Expect Mod-Sin dishes like Curry Chicken Kueh Pie Tee & Braised Pork Belly Chee Cheong Fun which will be a perfect complement to the cocktails. (Mar 2021)

Wash it down with a glass of Bubbles or with a Smokey Old Fashioned which is a marriage of Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Whisky, Islay Whisky, Okinawa Sugar, and Bitters.
