Prohibition Era Cocktails at Pitmasters

Bespoke cocktail joints are experiencing a renaissance on this island. The lions' current favourite hideout for such elegantly crafted concoctions is Pitmasters. What the two felines like best about this new low-key joint is that it is as classy as it is unassuming. Service is warm, smiles are forthcoming and the passion for their work, palpable.  Of course, the main highlight remains their beautifully executed cocktails by resident mixologists.    

Chilling out after a hard day's work
by candlelight and lush tunes from the prohibition era.
One of the best cocktails on the island
is expertly crafted here within the dark, old style elegance
of this joint hidden on the second floor of a conservation shophouse
in the Kampong Glam precinct. Walk pass the American-style deli
on the first floor and head up the wooden stairs.
Cute Cute's choice of poison for the night:
Smooth Criminal
made with Dark Rum, Blackberries, Grape Liqour, Lemon Juice & Gomme.
Cuchi's went for the cocktail named after her beau's current pet pharse:
Bee's Knees
made with Gin, Lemon Juice, Agave liquor and Honey Syrup.
Smooth Criminal was definitely the highlight of the evening.
Well-balanced with an oddly addictive bubble-gummy fruity note.
Snacking Time. The humble potato chip given a posh spin with
the pleasantly subtle cheese froth atop.
Chef acceded to the lion's request for Pitmasters'
piece de resistance: Pulled Pork.
This dish has customers coming back for more and
the lions could see why with its umami-packed marinate.
Dessert served in petit four style.
Canale, Fruit meringue, Pear Jelly, Dark Chocolate
Very classy and the homemade Pear Jelly was outstandingly divine.
Walls come alive with cosmic art.
