Located only 1.2km from Newton, Orchard Road serves everything you need. From luxury retail to world-class international cuisines, Singapore’s most famous shopping precinct is home to a wealth of experiences.
Orchard Road’s humble beginnings date back to the early 1830s when it was an unnamed road home to fruit orchards, nutmeg plantations and pepper farms. In 1958, Orchard Road’s first department store—TANGS—was set up by local merchant C.K. Tang. Then known as House of Tangs, it marked the neighbourhood’s first step towards becoming Singapore’s most beloved shopping district.
Orchard Road’s bustling boulevard is now a retail and dining paradise, with over 5,000 establishments offering the ultimate lifestyle experience to tourists and locals alike.
Origin Bar’s cocktails are inspired by five key districts of Singapore: Orchard, Chinatown, Little India, Boat Quay and Marina Bay. Bar Manager and Slovakian native, Adam Bursik, has carefully concocted each cocktail to reflect the colours, flavours and historical anecdotes of the different neighbourhoods. The namesake, Origin, is a spicy gin-based cocktail made with sugar cane honey, nutmeg, pepper, charred pineapple and lime husk wine; Leaf the Curry, a tart-sweet rum cocktail features curry leaf, tamarind and green cardamom; Buona Vista, an ode to journeys and settlement. It offers notes of coffee, fig, distilled hazelnut, chocolate and Campari; and The Pearl, boasts a smooth and floral bouquet of Black Forest gin with tofu, elderflower, sea grapes and Mugi shochu.
