The Monarchy, known for playing host to both royalty and celebs alike, is the brainchild of nightlife veterans, Robbie Hoyes-Cock, the CEO & Founder of the world's most glamorous Formula 1 weekend after-parties The Podium Lounge and Steve Yallop, former Director of Pangaea at Marina Bay Sands who have been organizing high society club nights in Singapore since 2005.
The quintessentially British cocktail bar exudes understated luxury, is spread over 1,600 square feet in the heart of Tras Street and serves a carefully curated menu of timeless cocktails through the ages. As a beacon for the who's who of Asia's business and party elite, the cocktail bar bears a distinctly regal theme, celebrating the Royal Houses of Normandy to Windsor and Lancaster to the Tudors.
Former Group Beverage Director of Burnt Ends, Meatsmith & Rogue Trader, Rob Scott lives and breathes premium spirits, imaginative ingredients & the highly stylized energy of his bars. As General Manager & Head Barman of The Monarchy, Rob will be introducing a new cocktail list quarterly, enabling guests to take multiple journeys through the history of Great Britain's most popular tastes and tipples of the day. Drawing on traditional cocktails for inspiration but utilizing novel ingredients with a twist is what underlies The Monarchy's ambition to leave an indelible mark on Singapore's electrifying cocktail scene.
The Monarchy's opening cocktail list is titled 'Cool Britannia' in celebration of the modern, outward-facing Britain. Led by the success of Brit-pop, this period of increased pride in the culture of the United Kingdom and the giddy cultural fantasia of the 1990s became known as Cool Brittania. The name is a pun of the title of one of Britain's most patriotic songs ''Rule Brittania'' in reference to Queen Elizabeth II's beloved and iconic Royal Yacht Brittania, which was in service from 1954 until 1997. Many of the creative aspects of the time, labelled under the banner of Cool Brittania were avowedly inspired by the music, fashion and arts of the 1960s.
Inspired by our favourite British songs over the decades we have conceptualised & crafted the following cocktails for The Monarchy to stoke the very same feelings of euphoria and optimism shared by the Cool Brittania movement.
