If you want to come, you are required to make reservation in advance. Visitors will usually receive a golden ticket before entering the bar. Goldstein has a homey ambiance.

Such as Green Goddess, a super fresh, cooling and pesto-like cocktail using infused tequila with basil to create stronger taste. Or Between Moods. It is sweet, mild, easy to drink and hard to forget. Made by pandan infused white rum. That’s why this is become Gina’s best seller.

4. Dirty Laundry
Dirty Laundry may be a speakeasy bar, but it’s really not that hard to get hold of it. Unlike other speakeasy in the city, Dirty Laundry doesn’t mind putting up its sign at the entrance. That is if you venture deep into Fairgrounds building. But there’s a much better way to access Dirty Laundry.

Sharing its location with Bottega Ristorante, Dirty Laundry is divided only by a retractable wall. Inside, the establishment feels like an extension of Bottega Ristorante. Since the contrast is not jarring at all, first timer would be forgiven for thinking Dirty Laundry is a private room for the VIP in the restaurant.

Dirty Laundry caters to both who come in big group or small squad of your closest friends. Here you have to try on their house cocktails like the bold flavours of Old Cuban is the result from the infusion with cigars. Don’t fret, there are also cocktails that are lighter in flavours, such as Nuts & Spring and Bee’s Knees.

The concept for burgundy is to offer customers an enticing combination of superb drinks, amazing live music, and relaxed environment of a ‘living room’.
