Only a few months old, Renku morphs from an all-day dining lounge serving local cuisine and afternoon tea to a cosy bar with an extensive cocktail menu in the evenings.
Located at the lobby of the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) hotel, Renku is the only 24-hour bar and lounge at the integrated resort complex.
Expect artisanal tipples such as Rosella ($20), a cocktail made from Citadelle Original Gin, Cocchi Rosa, champagne and infused with the fruity and sweet wild forest berry tea; and Renku Lager ($15), comprising a pint of aromatic Bavarian lager infused with Japanese green tea. For the apprentice mixologist in you, Renku also offers a Design Your Own Martini (DYOM) programme ($30), where you mix your own martini from a choice of five gin and vodka bases, and a variety of garnishes.
Enjoy 50 per cent off the DYOM programme on Tuesday evenings from 6pm to 9pm.
