6 Best Places For Margaritas In Singapore (That Aren’t Bars!)

Fans of margaritas, rejoice!

What better way to end your day than with this well-loved cocktail? Here’s where you can get a dosage of your margarita on this island. 

Did you know that every 22 February is Margarita Day? If you love tequila, this might just be your day. Till today, the exact history of margaritas remain a mystery, but one of its earliest stories took place in 1938 with Carlos “Danny” Herrera creating a drink for his customer, Marjorie King, who was allergic to many spirits, but not to tequila. Many other stories have been told since about the origin of margaritas.

Today, according to cocktail historian, David Wondrich, the margarita is a relative to a popular Mexican drink called the Daisy (margarita is Spanish for “daisy”), remade with tequila instead of brandy. Margaritas have since remained a household favourite that’s suitable for any time of day. Here are our picks for the best places serving margaritas in Singapore.

Besides its wide variety of margarita flavours ($14 a glass) and lively ambience, this makes it to the list especially because we love having pre-party drinks here before heading over to Blu Jaz (sometimes with our unfinished margarita in hand) on a Saturday night.

If you’re not really into tequila (¿por que no?!) but still want to be a part of the fun, you might like these alternatives instead: Chivas Margarita or Bombay Margarita, or JD Margarita (contains Chivas, Bombay Sapphire Gin, and Jack Daniels respectively). Personally? We love the El Patio Margarita ($12 a glass) – it’s one of the best in town.
