MO BAR’s current Volume Three menu was introduced in November 2020 to continue the journey seen in the first two volumes. Starting from refreshing no- to low-ABV options before progressing towards more robust, spirit-forward drinks, the menu offers a diverse selection of regionally inspired cocktails with a personal story from the inspiration city attached to each one. Spanning both Western and Eastern influences, the food selection at MO BAR is specially curated to accompany the cocktails, drawing inspiration from famous local and international flavours with vegetarian options for inclusivity.


Continuously innovating, MO BAR introduced a fully interactive and digitally engaging menu to complement the in-bar experience. The bar’s Volume Three menu features the one-of-a-kind digital hub that explores innovative ways to take customers on a journey. Breaking from conventions, the site is a nod to how the drinks were designed – embracing the new normal with virtual guest shifts rather than in-person while exploring the history and culture of their chosen destinations across the Asia Pacific.
