{HAPPY HOUR HUNTS} Sum Yi Tai at Raffles Place: Drinking, Dragons, and Debauchery

30 April, 2015

Sum Yi Tai smashes into Singapore with Chinese tapas, drinking dragons, and an era of cantopop! And boy do I have a story for you!

Sum Yi Tai means 3rd wife, so these 3 floors of joy at Boon Tat Street (Raffles Place) will basically insinuate plenty of CBD debauchery.

Hong Kong meets Singapore and whizzes you back to the 1900s, so how about some whisky to go? They have plenty of it here. Suckling pigs are ushered in with sparklers, a behaviour familiar to those who occasionally celebrate the fine lifestyle of bottle-popping. I am so amused by the hanging ducks framing the first floor bar, the collection of Sammy Cheng CDs, and the murals of dragons everywhere. I think I might be a closet gangster-wannabe? Don’t mess with me lah!

Extra cool points that all the wait staff have black shirts with gold dragon motifs on them! I definitely feel the triad-tribe vibe. Cocktails were well-concocted – all the better to wash down your claypot rice for lunch with hangover soup, or after-work pre-hangover roast pork and spicy Szechuan whitebait (SO YUM). This is most def the IT new spot in the CBD to show off to your friends, dates or clients.

The first floor (featuring DJ Andrew T) is open to public, and the rooftop bar upstairs is invite and reservations-only to keep the crowd intimate.

Service was personalized and prompt when I popped by. I’ll be back to have a proper cocktail night – thanks for the invite Sum Yi Tai @ Boon Tat Street.

The lion has launched! ‘Grats!
