Inside the National Museum of Singapore, trendy hotelier Yenn Wong (of the JIA hotel) artfully merges a penchant for forward-looking furnishings like Frank Gehry benches with the colonial heritage of this 120-year-old venue. Chef Iskandar Latiff helps the happy hour crowd unwind with free french fries, laksa burritos, and spring rolls with hard-boiled quail egg. Muse '75, a champagne-and-saffron cocktail, accompanies mini-burgers topped with cheddar, grilled onion, and a dash of horseradish. Late-night revelers can enjoy cocktails under the stars on the terrace overlooking the museum courtyard.
