No plans for the weekend? Our Hot List is here to help you keep up with the latest happenings in Singapore:
Champagne brunch? Check. Prosecco brunch? Check. How about a cocktail brunch then? Providing a rather interesting twist to the popular Sunday brunch, Regent Singapore has launched Singapore’s “first adults-only” cocktail brunch at Manhattan, which starts on 10 August.
As you tuck into hearty dishes like the bbq pulled pork slider and Manhattan’s seasonal selection of artisan American cheeses, don’t forget to try the stars of the meal — a selection of six cocktails that include the refreshing Bartender’s Breakfast — a blend of tea-infused Aylesbury Duck vodka, Green Chartreuse, honey water, fresh lemon and seltzer water.
The bagel station at Manhattan, which comes with an array of toppings and house made cream cheese smears.
There’s also the Bloody Mary Cart, situated in Manhattan’s rickhouse. It allows you to concoct your own blend of the popular brunch cocktail, with an assortment of spices, condiments and garnishes. The brunch is priced at S$150++ (includes free flow craft cocktails, beers and wines) and S$195++ (includes free flow craft cocktails, beers, wines and Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve champagne.

Jaguar’s first crossover concept car, the C-X17, was launched yesterday with much fanfare at a popup gallery at ION2, right outside ION Orchard. From now till 11 August, visitors can view the car, built on Jaguar’s all-new advanced aluminium architecture.
At the gallery, visitors will also be treated to an impressive surround sound audio-visual experience that will give them greater insight on the mechanics of the new model.
Leonardo DiCarpio is one of the celebrities that the illustrious photographer photographed.
If you haven’t viewed the Annie Leibovitz A Photographer’s Life 1999 – 2005 exhibition, this weekend would be a great time to do so. Not only do visitors enjoy free admission as part of the National Day celebrations, they will also enjoy a free ArtScience Museum guided tour.

Tippling Club recently welcomed its new head bartender, Kamil Foltan, previously from sophisticated Art Deco-style bistro and with that comes additions of new aperitifs and classics to its already impressive cocktails menu.
Fruity flavours seemed to be the focus of the new menu, and some drinks we particularly liked include pear and green tea bellini made from pear and Japanese green tea puree and sparkling wine (S$18) and Jersey lightning (S$20), a concoction of whiskey, green apple, cinnamon, vanilla and citrus. We also liked the Bohemian Mai Tai (S$22), served in a quirky mug.
