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.
Excellent drinks and ambience
Felt pressured to leave :(. Not the most elegant way to deal with the restrictions at hand so will likely not come back before these restrictions are lifted.
Service was a bit slow since it was a busy night but otherwise had a really really good time!
Being our 1st visit here , we are impress with waitress and the Manager .However bartender needs to improve her service attitude , to make this place a "WOW" factor . Otherwise, worth the visit ......
Superb drinks, even better people. Extremely recommend
Really cool place to hang out
Great service and innovative with a cool hidden underground vibe! Thanks team.
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. :-)
