Dislike to drink in crowded places? Looking for a private/quiet bar to chill with your friends? Fret not, I’ve got just the place for you! Located on the second level of Orchard Shopping Centre, Elixir Bar (a part of multi-concept space KUVO) has recently rolled out an alchemy-themed cocktail menu conceptualised by the newly-appointed Head Mixologist, Vladyslav Buzko.
Drawing his inspiration from ancient Greek myths and legends, the charming Vladyslav Buzko has created ten “Elxirs”, of which split into five categories – Happiness, Beauty, Life, Luck and Courage. Each cocktail is presented uniquely in rare and interesting cups, and you can also expect to see fire & nitrogen performance. So, if you are a cocktail-lover (especially for the ladies because the bartender is very handsome), you should totally check out this secluded bar in town! CONFIRM NO REGRETS!
I reached the bar earlier than the rest and got the chance to chat with Vladyslav Buzko. My conversation with him made me realised one important take-away – Do first, think later. Vladyslav Buzko is seriously damn YOLO! He travels around to work, gaining new experience outside his comfort zone. The cocktails he create at Elxir Bar all comes from his years of experience working in different countries. He is an inspiration!
A picture of the charming Vladyslav. I believe all the ladies will be flocking to this bar when this post is out. Tell him your preference, and I’m sure he will whip out something that suits your taste bud.
Beauty of Nefertiti // $21
Vodka, Frangelico, Slime of Snail, Fire of Prometheus, Juice from Enchanted Apples & Gold Dust
Served in a ancient Chinese cup, this cocktail was the lightest out of all that we’ve tried. Vodka flavour wasn’t too overwhelming and there was a slight sweetness at the end. Really like the foam on top as well. Very soothing!
Aphrodite’s Secret // $23
Gin, Heart of Swan, Chambord, Slime of Snail, Drooling of Ant, Sweet Syrup & Roses of Oblivion
Gin-lovers will fall in love with this instantly! It was aromatic and again, very easy to drink. Ladies will like this!
Anubis Potion // $26
Ashes of God, Monkey Shoulder, Galliano Ristretto, Sweet Syrup, Jackal Blood & Chocolate Bitter
Prepare your camera because the performance is gonna start real soon. As you can see, huge amount of nitrogen is coming out from the drinks. This cocktail is a tad stronger, definitely my kind of drink. Oh yes, the chocolate was such a great add to the drink!
Jupiter // $26
Cognac, Dom Benedictine, Hummingbird Eggs, Meteorite & Perpetual Glue
CHEERS! Another cocktail that has a performance worth videoing! This time round, it’s FIRE! This was a very strong cocktail and it was very well-mixed. Strong but not to the extent of burning the throat.
Love Potion // $24
Flavoured Vodka, Midori, Drooling of Ant, Sun Juice, Vanishing Potion & Worm
Ending the night on a sweet note. The cocktail goes very well with the jello served in an oyster shell. Great combo!
How can it be a good bar if the bar doesn’t serves good snacks. I’m glad Elixir Bar does really great bar snacks. Here’s one of my favourite – Roasted Chicken. It was well-marinated, tender and juicy. So yummy!
Another bar snack that complements Elixir Bar’s drink very well!
