Singapore, 6 August 2020 – Following 2019’s pop-up event series, “Nomadic Foragers,” the team from MO BAR is adapting to the new normal with a Nomadic Forager Virtual Bar Tour for 2020.
In each stop of the 2019 regional tour, the team had the opportunity to explore local markets and learn about indigenous fruits and spices in consideration for cocktails. Collaborating with a renowned cocktail bar in each city, MO BAR’s team created a signature menu – served for one night only at a special guest shift event. Reflecting on their adventures over the year, the team developed MO BAR’s Volume Two menu, which brings guests on a whimsical journey across Asia.
With travel temporarily on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MO BAR embarks on a virtual bar tour in partnership with top venues in Southeast Asia, including Vesper (Bangkok), Alice Cheongdam (Seoul), The Curator (Manila), ROOM by Le Kief (Taipei), Sidecar (New Delhi) and more.
Each participating bar will offer two signature cocktails from MO BAR’s Volume Two menu for a limited run, allowing their guests to sample MO BAR’s cocktails – no travel required. For a more in-depth exploration of the drinks, interested guests may opt into a live virtual session with MO BAR’s team via a QR code.
MO BAR will also host each of the participating venues for a virtual guest shift in Singapore, offering their signature cocktails for one week at the bar. Guests dreaming of their next holiday can indulge in unique cocktails from top venues around the region, all without leaving Singapore. The confirmed schedule for pop-ups at MO BAR is as follows:
- 6 to 12 August 2020: Vesper (Bangkok, Thailand)
- 13 to 19 August 2020: Bar Cham, Alice Cheongdam (Seoul, South Korea)
- 20 to 26 August 2020: Back Room, The Curator, Agimat, Spirits Library (Manila, Philippines)
- 27 August to 2 September 2020: Irusu Lounge (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam), Galaxy Bar (Dubai, UAE)
- 3 to 9 September 2020: ROOM by Le Kief (Taipei, Taiwan), Sidecar (New Delhi, India)
Future stops on the tour will be added from September onwards, with details to be announced.
