Head's up, CBD warriors. Here's another watering hole in Raffles Place when you're no longer working from home.
And if you don't pay attention you might just miss it, because this speakeasy/cocktail bar is hidden behind the facade of a elegant tailor.
Reminiscent of "Kingsman"
Taylor Adam opened its doors on Oct. 14.

The bar's tailor facade was cleverly designed in collaboration with Meiko Tailor, a bespoke tailor in Singapore, to achieve the exact look and feel that you would get at an actual tailor.
Don't be fooled by the tailor shopfront, however, as there is no option of having an actual garment made directly at Taylor Adam.
Instead, Taylor Adam aims to mirror the experience of tailoring a garment, where the bar's drinks and cocktails can be customised, and dare we say, taylored to suit your fancy.
If that sounds like a headache, you can choose from any of the 12 signature cocktails (S$22.80 each) in Taylor Adam's menu.
Each of these cocktails have a story to tell.
Take the Vesper Martini, for instance, a drink that was first made famous by James Bond and named after the fictional double agent Vesper Lynd.
Using Roku Gin, Haku Vodka, and Lillet Blanc, the concoction was mixed and created by Bond author, Ian Fleming, and made its first appearance in "Casino Royale".
Those who have watched both instalments of "Kingsman" might even draw parallels between the films and Taylor Adam's classy gentlemen theme.
If you're feeling peckish, the bar also dishes out small bites.
Menu options include 50g of caviar (S$198), served with accoutrements like blinis, crème Fraîche, eggs, and chives, for those looking to splurge.
The rest of the food, thankfully, are going at a much more affordable (relatively speaking) S$14.80 - S$28.80.
