Employing a range of exotic, innovative and familiar ingredients and techniques, the bar boasts a nuanced and sophisticated menu that guests are bound to flock to. The appetisers on the menu add another feather to PLUME’s cap – distinct Singaporean flavour profiles, culinary traditions, and inspiration from our island’s native birds come together to form the perfect cocktail accompaniments.
Indulge in a multi-sensory journey with PLUME’s signature cocktails, crafted to enchant even the most discerning palates. Drawing inspiration from 12 iconic native birds of Singapore, each drink reflects the unique characteristics of their respective avian muse, from their vibrant plumage, and distinctive habitat to the seeds and fruits that nourish them.
Take a sip of the Pink Necked Green Pigeon, a fruity concoction that takes inspiration from the Pink-necked Pigeon’s diet of fruits and fig leaves. The fig leaf infusion adds a delightful sweetness to the invigorating spritz, elevating it to a sensorial indulgence of the highest order.
For the adventurous at heart, the Asian Koel is a Negroni like no other. Savour the complex and refined flavour profile of this bitter, herbaceous cocktail, enhanced by a dash of exquisite sandalwood tree dispersion and premium, freshly brewed green coffee tequila, resulting in an alluring and earthy taste.
The Blue-tailed Bee-eater is for those with a more reserved palette, a refreshing drink that’s reminiscent of a gin sour. Infused with sage and saline, the cocktail is a light and breezy delight that will elevate your mood and transport you to a blissful realm.
An opulent libation, the Chestnut Winged Cuckoo is anchored with a rich dark rum elevated with tangy notes of Ceylon Arrak. Fruit and floral undertones further compliment the drink, garnished with a sprig of fresh mint, a slice of juicy orange, and a sprinkling of delicate pine nuts.
The pièce de résistance of PLUME is the Banded Woodpecker, a cocktail that sets your heart aflutter with its unconventional mix. Made with Green Ant Gin, this intriguing drink is served with a mist of oak moss, accentuating a citrusy and musky perfume that tantalizes your senses.
PLUME also offers non-alcoholic options such as Soar, a luxurious mocktail with the perfect amalgamation of refreshing jasmine, honeysuckle and a hint of honey.
The menu also features a selection of appetisers, perfect to pair with your drinks. Further inspired by Singapore’s native birds and local flavours, Thorsten Killian, Executive Sous Chef of Pan Pacific Singapore, has created elevated iterations of popular Singaporean dishes.

For those seeking sumptuous and indulgent splendour, Perched Together offers chicken rendang croquettes nestled on a bed of crispy leeks, served with creamy rice and egg purée delicately encased within an eggshell.
