About Operation Dagger
When it comes to setting an atmosphere of mystery, Operation Dagger scores full marks. Near to the action but not quite, the basement bar is hidden along a back alley at the junction of Club Street and Ann Siang Hill. The entrance – unwashed floor, plain glass door, illegible scribbling on the top – is so nondescript that even the building it’s in doesn’t have a name. It opens to a dingy staircase that leads further down, but it’s the smell that hits you first: an acrid smokiness of burnt herbs.
Headed by Luke Whearty and Aki Nishikura, the bar lies under a cloud of light bulbs and against a backdrop of shelves, on which stand rows of tinted bottles labelled with a grid of faded drawings. (One of the indifferent bartenders explains that they’re a code for each liquid.) In 2015 alone, Operation Dagger was voted Best New Bar at the Singapore Bar Awards and came in the top ten for Best New International Cocktail Bar at Tales of the Cocktail. Proof is in the pudding or, in this case, every one of the duo’s multi-sensory concoctions.
Ash was very skillful and take good care of us at the table. Great service and awesome drinks. Had a great time there!
Really enjoy coming here. The new selection of cocktails is nice - a good variety.
The drinks are incredible! Just wish the size of the drink was a little bigger.
Amazing atmosphere and delicious drinks. Excellent service!
Cocktails amazing and food was delicious!
Food options are too limited Drinks and service are great Drinks prices above $20 gotta really stand out from the rest .
Drinks is amazing. But one thing i would really like to point out, your staff services is definitely one of the reason for us to return
Great service and decor. Drinks were worth it as well. Thanks for the wonderful experience!
Staff was very friendly and hospitable - The guy who admitted us into the bar even remembered my name and checked in on us later during the night to see if everything was okay. The bar ambiance was great as well :)
Great atmosphere. Their drinks are fantastic. Will come back again 👍🏻
Operation dagger was my first hidden bar. I guess I expected it to be more hidden. It would be fun to have a password or puzles involved to get in or order certain drinks. It would be interesting to have some more info about the concept written on the menu(the name and history). The "wanker" explained but it was hard to hear. The drinks were tasty.
Great pre or post-dinner spot. Cool vibe and great service. Unique take on cocktails.
Amazing ID and amazing cocktails
Ashley’s cocktails are some of the best in the game! It’s always great to see her and chat about her new concoctions ❤️
Thank you for the warm and kind service as well as accommodating to our bookings at a late call. The usual classic legend hot & cold are our favourite. :-)
There is apparently a 1.5hr time limit to the reservation. This should haVe been advised to us upfront at the time of making the reservation. This was quite inconcenient and we had to find an alternate venue at the last minute as we had to give up our table.
Excellent service and inventive cocktails! Loved the atmosphere. I'll come back.
Really nice staff that were helpful in drink recommendations and were very courteous without being intrusive. One thing to note is that you can order off menu which for some reason I didn’t think was possible. The menu is eclectic and interesting, but you can actually order any of the normal things like a Manhattan or something of the like if you’re looking for something a bit more basic. Overall really enjoyed my night here and will be back.
Relaxed atmosphere and great drinks
the decor was interesting but the steps leading down to the basement had a weird funky smell. the drinks menu is interesting but didn't blow me off my mind, could probably blame the rave reviews out there. service was good but i think it was too crowded and slightly messy/all over the place
Very friendly team of service and bar staff. The drinks are very interesting, very cool yet cosy atmosphere, I'll definitely be back again!
super cool drinks and bartenders! had a great time there
Really amazing to watch the mixologists make the cocktails, the bartender was incredibly friendly and we really enjoyed talking to him!
