Think teepee huts with tropical vibes, except you’re sipping on botanical cocktails at one of the most luxurious hotels in Singapore, Andaz Singapore. Located on Level 39, Mr Stork is an urban oasis that provides an unparalleled view of the city. There are al fresco wooden tables and chairs, but we suggest having your tipple at their iconic teepee huts if you prefer an intimate setting. Order a pint of their signature Andaz Pale Ale ($18) or their famous Ruby cocktail ($22) – a combination of lemon, vermouth, mint and Ceylon arrack served in an Insta-worthy elephant mug.
