It’s a bit tricky to find this place because it’s a speakeasy bar hidden behind a discreet velvet curtain inside a hotel. But once you get in The Other Room located in Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel, Singapore, the search instantly feels worth it because you’re treated to a welcome drink served in a dropper bottle with a glass of water on the side, like a true VIP.
A coffee crawl around Hong Kong would seem incomplete without a trip to at least one of The Coffee Academics’ twelve stores in that country. We visited the one along Yiu Wa street in Causeway Bay and it may have been one of the classiest coffee shops we’ve ever seen. A brass plate embedded on the entrance floor has words from Napoleon Bonaparte engraved on it, inviting guests to go ahead and have their much-deserved coffee break.
After walking up and down the busy streets around Canggu, pit stop at The Loft. Their space design is wide open, with almost half of their tables al fresco and there are no walls to separate the interior sections from the outside areas. This results in an effortless flow that allows the cafe’s vibe to radiate out from its core all the way to the street. It creates a very inviting atmosphere that we ourselves were drawn into.
One of the best modern izakaya spots in Manila is in a place you probably won’t just happen upon. So let us give you a couple of reasons to make the trip over to the tiny Guijo Street in Makati to find 12/10. They’re renowned for their unique and modern play on Japanese fusion dishes and their tasting menu is considered one of the best in Manila.
Nylon is situated in between Housing Development buildings facing a quaint pocket courtyard with a few benches and big flowering trees. When in bloom, they flower in bright hues of peach and orange. It’s such a beautiful sight. When you step inside, you are greeted by an attractive wooden coffee bar and you will almost instantly notice that there are no seats except for a couple of chairs that match the colors of the flowers outside.
