Formerly known as Keong Saik Snacks, The Study has launched in a chic neighborhood of Singapore’s Chinatown. Inspired by British café culture and comfort foods, the casual bistro concept aims to revitalize the Unlisted Collection venue. The talents of Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton are once again tapped for the creation of the menu and culinary direction. Atherton’s applauded Esquina is just up the road from The Study while his Pollen restaurant occupies the Flower Dome at Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay. Along with dishes such as seared scallops with crispy pig belly and Shepard’s Pie, guests can experience The Library speakeasy hidden next door behind an ever-rotating pop-up store. Australian mixologist Nicholas Quattroville has taken the helm of the notoriously exclusive space, with a strict no-photography rule and entrance only granted by a secret password. The bar’s beloved drink concoctions include the Shrub-a-Dub-Dub, a gin-and vermouth-based punch served in a mini bathtub with rubber duckies, or simply ask bow tie-sporting bartenders for an original tipple. A long copper bar with several layers of metal riveted together connects the two spaces and lends an industrial feel. Low lighting and high-back leather booths create a cosy but posh ambience as you sip drinks like the fruity Top Secret or Made Man replete with a Queen of Hearts card.
