Native bar in Singapore made its debut in 2017 onto both Asia's 50 Best Bars and The World's 50 Best Bars lists. Founder Vijay Mudaliar, one of Asia's leading bartenders, talks us through the concept of the bar and its signature cocktails.
Still in his twenties, Mudaliar has already received a host of accolades, including Bartender of the Year at The Bar Awards 2017 and Most Creative Cocktail Bar for Native. Taking inspiration from the local and regional landscape, Native serves cocktails with foraged ingredients from jasmine blossom to turmeric leaves to crunchy ants, with many products found just metres from the bar. In little more than a year, Native has quickly become one of the most exciting cocktail bars on one of the world’s most thriving cocktail scenes – Singapore.
Discover the full list of The World's 50 Best Bars below - and stay tuned for the 2018 list of Asia's 50 Best Bars, to be announced in Singapore on May 3rd.
