Modern Asian Bar and Cocktail Club, Eliza, harkens a new age of entertainment in Singapore. Opened by the veterans of the nightlife and entertainment business, with a stellar bench that includes Eu-Yen Tay, who co-founded The Butter Factory, and Sandra Sim, who was a restauranteur in Shanghai, together forming Coterie Concepts.
Group Chief Bartender Sam Wong along with Gordon Foo, Managing Director of the former Shanghai Dolly and DJ Aldrin of Zouk fame, complete the deck.
A departure from the traditional nightclub experience, guests can expect carefully curated cocktails, paired with Shanghai dishes and live jazz rearrangements of pop music, seamlessly transitioning into nu-disco DJ sets.
Upon entry, the statement glass cabinet full of embellished custom-made collars immediately transports guests into Eliza’s fashion studio, excluding an air of exclusivity and elegance. The decor presents a sophisticated set of stylish, comfortable luxury, ideal for early evening cocktails, relaxed dining, or late night drinks and socialising.
Further in, the lounge showcases plush pinstripe chairs that offer front row seats to the live entertainment. The bar itself runs the length of the space on one side, where gold mirrored tiles are the backdrop, reflecting light onto the deep midnight blue walls.
On offer is a cocktail menu divided into three distinct categories; Classic, Vintage and Signature that transport guests to the glamorous period of post-millennial Shanghai.
Soak in the live jazzy re-arrangements of pop music, or "pop jazz". On stage, talented musicians perform in an intimate space that aptly evokes the glamorous Shanghai atmosphere. The buzzing ambience lends an air of excitement as the music evolves seamlessly throughout the night into the sounds of nu-disco sets from DJ Aldrin, complementing the live band before taking over the floor into the early morning.
Eliza is open every Monday to Saturday, from 5 pm to 3 am (Mon-Fri) and 6 pm to 4 am (Sat). Reservations can be made via firstname.lastname@example.org.
