Best Champagne brunches in Singapore: Republic Bar, Manhattan, Butcher’s Block and more

JW Mariott Singapore South Beach Champagne Brunch

Breakfast might be the most important meal of the day, but so is brunch. It’s the one meal that we always look forward to, and not just because of the bottomless booze. Check this space out for our ever-growing list of Singapore’s best brunches.

Republic Bar Singapore

Republic’s Punch Brunch
Sunday, 12pm to 3pm
S$168 per person for food and unlimited cocktails and punches

What about: Republic is bringing back the punch. The cocktail lounge of Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore recently launched a new punch brunch on Sundays, recreating the convivial, lavish atmosphere of house parties in the sixties, where punch bowls were the height of fashion. 

Pick your poison from three distinct punch bowls created in collaboration with the respected David Wondrich, one of the founders of the modern craft cocktail movement: the heady Paul Jones Punch, made with rye whiskey, the Straits Gin Cup as imbibed at the Singapore Cricket Club in 1913, and the refreshing Captain Dampier’s Rack Punch, palm arrack fortified with Cognac. There’s also clarified English milk punches, including the deliciously pink English Milk Punch. Craving the classics? There’s also a selection of signature cocktails on offer—whether you go for the Bloody Mary or Espresso Martini, they’re all pretty potent. 

Supplement your bottomless booze with a trio of appetisers, a main and a dessert. The Foie Gras Terrine with port wine gelée and brioche was predictably indulgent, while the Avocado atop smoky burrata was a pleasant surprise. There’s nothing more classical than Eggs Benedict for the brunch traditionalists, but the Steamed Cod and Braised Beef Short Rib deserve honourable mentions. For the eclectically minded, consider the Hainanese Kurobuta pork chop. 

Robb tip: Though the punches are served out of elegant bar carts from polished silver bowls, tableside service isn’t de rigueur. But if you ask nicely, head bartender Jan Martin Villareal might just make an exception.

Butcher’s Block

Butcher’s Block Weekend Brunch
Saturday and Sunday, 11.30am to 2.30pm

What about: Helmed by a new chef de cuisine, Jordan Keao, Butcher’s Block serves up a contemporary wood-fire dining experience with new menus that draw on Keao’s Hawaiian heritage. At brunch, expect crowd favourites including the likes of Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, French Toast with Salted Caramel, Croque Madame with 18-month Joselito Iberico, and fresh Irish Oysters, in addition to the regular à la carte menu. The restaurant isn’t just doing wood-fire dining right, but also brunch—and we particularly enjoyed the French toast the most, peppered with a generous portion of raspberries and blueberries.

Robb tip: Elevate the brunch experience with the Sommelier’s Selection, a 90-minute complimentary flow vinous experience featuring specially handpicked wines for your weekend midday indulgence. Applicable only to the Weekend Brunch Tour De Force menu.
