V-day at the Secret Mermaid

Drink, drink, for the sake of love.

V-Day is upon us, and you know what that means: time to drink. The restaurants will be full of nauseatingly sweet-on-each-other couples celebrating their love, all under the same presumption that it’s a special day because everybody else is celebrating it on that same day. So drink instead. Scoot over to the Secret Mermaid tomorrow or Monday, and have a flight of eight drinks and light bites. Their couple’s package gets you four cocktails each, on a progressive scale moving from a refreshing daiquiri, to a vesper variation, a sangria-style, and a boozy one with Greenhook gin, brandy, and vermouth amongst its ingredients. And of course, each one of them featuring the excellent craft spirits that Secret Mermaid carries, including a barrel-aged Few gin, all for the pleasure of your tastebuds.

Guess the only caveat is that it’s closed on the actual V-Day. But hey, think of it this way; get blind-drunk on Saturday night and by Sunday you’ll be too wrecked to do anything massive for Valentines!

The Valentine’s Day Couple’s Package is priced at SGD 144 at Secret Mermaid, Ocean Financial Centre, 10 Collyer Quay. Just walk through the Raffles Place MRT underground until you pass Starbucks on the left and the Secret Mermaid will be behind giant doors on your right.
