“We are delighted to receive this highly coveted award and the recognition reaffirming the commitment and passion of our team at MO BAR to deliver unrivalled experience for discerning cocktail connoisseurs,” says Christian A. Hassing, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Singapore.


To celebrate this momentous achievement, Bar Manager Adrian Besa and his team crafted a special celebratory cocktail, the Polaris which literally translates to the brightest star situated near to the North Pole. Polaris marks MO BAR’s first entry to Asia’s 50 Best Bars listing and depicts the vision of the bar to continue to shine and deliver excellence in the cocktail arena. Reflecting a twist on classic Whiskey Sour, this commemorative cocktail draws inspiration from the travels taken by MO BAR team for the bar’s current Volume two menu and features the unique flavours of Southeast Asia. Polaris has a distinctive blend of whiskey, lemon juice and fermented pineapple with Asian spices and gula melaka. Cocktail enthusiasts can enjoy this refreshing sweet and sour whiskey cocktail with tart and smooth finish when the bar re-opens.

 MO BAR is located on level 4, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore. Inspired by the Pacific Ocean, rich culture of Asia’s ports and the travellers who journey between them, MO BAR presents a new experience to authentically celebrate the colours, flavours and aromas of the region. Discover a sophisticated space where the distinctive bar counter takes centre stage while an open concept allows a glimpse into the bartender’s world of mixology. The luxurious ambience is set by an earthy palette of warm brown and olive green, accented with splashes of nomadic furnishings and décor.
