Jigger & Pony
Having recently been awarded 8th place in the 2016 “Asia’s 50 Best Bars” list, Jigger & Pony is steadily climbing the ranks among world-class cocktail bars in the region. Even across the globe, Jigger & Pony has made a name for itself in the international cocktail scene having been listed as one of 2015’s “Bars to Watch” by Drinks International for “The World’s 50 Best Bars”.
Since May 2012, Jigger & Pony’s influence has sparked a resurgence of classic cocktails in Singapore. The enduring Negroni and classic Old Fashioned are prepared with artisanal spirits sourced from around the world. Staying true to the craft, all infusions and syrups are thoughtfully created in-house by the bartenders for absolute control on quality and consistency.
The menu is conceptualised by Bar Programme Director, Aki Eguchi, a two-time winner of the Diageo Reserve World Class Singapore and is charted into three categories: Classic, Vintage, and Signatures. Known for his repertoire of classic cocktails, Aki addsto the menu the original interpretations of them.
Drawing from Spanish influences, Jigger & Pony’s dark woods, red and yellow hues, and art deco hangings on the wall were inspired by Indra and Guo Yi’s visit to La Cabrera (Madrid) in 2011. Having experienced a great cocktail bar with such a warm ambience that steered away from the traditional dimly lit speakeasy, the couple then channeled this warm, friendly, and slightly casual setting into Jigger & Pony to create the perfect atmosphere for people to gather.
Jigger & Pony attracts a large variety of audiences - from those new to the world of cocktails looking to explore and further their knowledge, to well-seasoned cocktail enthusiasts.
