Commonly known as “Singapore’s worst-kept secret”, The Library is a small bar, hidden away on Keong Saik Road, but to gain entry you’ll need the password. There are a few methods to gain the secret code (hint: just try Facebook), and once you’ve gained access to the speakeasy you’ll be greeted with a robust cocktail menu ranging from a Foursome in the Jungle, to a Hot Tub Thyme Machine.
