Amidst the rabble of fancy cocktail bars of late, Copper seeks to rise above them with some pretty cool features. Copper aims to be the defacto gin joint in town, carrying as many as 80 labels at a time, and an impressive selection of in-house infused gin.
The joint is a looker too – the interiors are beautifully decorated with relics from the fictional steam-punk era and dark interiors convey a sense of adventure and wonder bars rarely have. Each frame and artifact alludes to a story behind the bar and her fictional caretaker Dr Sparks. There’s nothing quite like Copper in Singapore.
Besides the variety of labels available in Copper, you can sample their in house gins. Flavours range from cinnamon to tom yam. My colleague opted for the age old apple and cinnamon flavour which turned out to be delicious. You can customise your own gin & tonic from $18.
Spam Fries ($9)
The best of both worlds, you get fries, and spam! The fries were really well seasoned and crispy but that dip which is made with ketchup and cheese brought the dish to the next level. We couldn’t stop eating it and ordered a second serving of dip.
Duck Waffles ($20)
The waffles are topped with duck and showered with duck jus and bacon flavored maple syrup. I didn’t expect this dish to make a huge impact on me, but it turned out to be a delicious combination of sweet and savoury.
Mac & Cheese Balls ($15)
Your childhood pasta dish in bite sized portions. These little balls of cheesy heaven burst in your mouth and coat your tongue gloriously. The tomato sauce cuts through the heaviness nicely and brings a good balance to the dish.
Copper Jar Pickles ($9)
These vegetables are pickled in house, with goat cheese and olives at the base of the jar. They go really well together – it’s a little tough getting to the dip though, especially when the jar is still relatively full.
A Galvanised Steampunk Experience
Copper feels like a one of a kind spot, the vibe and décor really made the experience for me, and the food was great too. It’s a great place if you’re looking for an adventurous new spot to hang out with your friends, or if you’re craving for something greasy after a night of partying hard.
The closest MRT stations are Outram Park or Chinatown. Your best bet would be to walk to Keong Saik from either station and keep an eye out of Jiak Chuan road which is one of the many lanes leading out of Keong Saik.
Where:10 Jiak Chuan Road
When: Monday- Wednesday 6pm-midnight, Thursday – Saturday 6pm – 3am
