Liquor Lovers Raise Your Hands
The storefront of Cellar Bank is a duty-free liquor store, whereas the speakeasy bar is located at the back. At Cellar Bank, you won’t find common beer, but if you’re into hard liquor, this is where you’ll find a selection of them. They also carefully curate a selection of whiskey flights and cocktails, making the discovery of spirits as accessible and enjoyable as possible. Try first before you buy, and their bartenders are also always happy to share their expertise and recipes for your own DIY cocktail. Furthermore, Cellar Bank also provides bottle keep services, where you can purchase a bottle of liquor and have the unfinished portion stored until a later visit. Better yet, you only pay the retail price of the bottle, rather than the bar price!
Cheers To Making It Internationally
Cellar Bank constantly has an evolving selection of more than 100 types of open bottle liquor from all over the world at their bar, as well as a collection of more than 1,000, including limited bottles. As a dealer for international brands, Cellar Bank also regularly organises liquor sampling and product knowledge events to local hoteliers and for tourists. They work with the best local mixologists, bringing them in from all over the country for short stints. Cellar Bank takes pride with return customers ordering their regular cocktails, knowing that they have chosen the right whiskey for them, as well as word-of-mouth business. In the near future, they hope to expand internationally, as they have received numerous requests from fans worldwide to bring their brand and concept to their countries!
