Morton’s is best known as a swanky American steakhouse serving up succulent prime cuts, seafood, and fine wines, but what you might not know is that The Bar at Morton’s is also a sweet after-work drinks spot with great happy hour specials taking place every day of the week. If you’re looking for a sophisticated place in Singapore to swig some martinis as you rub elbows with corporate types or have a tipple of two before you indulge in a decadent steak dinner, Morton’s is your spot.
Why you should come here:
Located in the heart of the CBD at the Mandarin Oriental, The Bar at Morton’s is popular with the professional crowd who flock here post-work for Mortini Nights when you can get massive 3oz pour martinis for just $15.95++ each, plus complimentary mini filet mignon steak sandwiches between 5pm and 7pm every evening. Purists can go for the Classic Mortini made with gin or vodka, while those who like their martinis flavoured can opt for the Cosmopolitan Appletini, Chocolate Mortini, or Lycheetini. We say try ’em all.
What we love:
The bar is seriously stylish with lots of dark wood and brass accents, the service is fast and efficient, and unlike many other places that offer happy hour deals, they certainly don’t skimp on the booze here (hic!). The martinis pack a punch, so we suggest grabbing as many of the steak sandwiches as you can get your paws on, or try some of the tasty bar bites like spinach, crab and artichoke dip, mini crab cake BLTs or the parmesan truffle matchstick fries.
Come during happy hour and you’ll find that The Bar at Morton’s is a happening spot, so we suggest heading here a bit early to grab some good seats, preferably at the bar where you can flag down the bartender for your next round of martinis. If you’re planning on dining in the steakhouse afterwards, reservations are also a good idea.
Damage: During Mortini Nights, select martinis go for $15.95++ each and bar bites start at $7++.
