MO BAR at the Mandarin Oriental, Singapore - A New Bar in Marina Bay with Bold Cocktails and Inventive Food

The Mandarin Oriental, Singapore was one of the first few hotels that I have stayed in when I relocated back to Singapore a number of years back. Last year, I stayed in a Club Marina Bay Room to check out the newly-refurbished Oriental Club and ever since I have gotten my American Express Platinum Card, I have been thinking about another staycation since the FHR Benefits for this property seem pretty good. Located near the Marina Bay, this luxurious property has just unveiled a brand new dining concept - MO BAR, which occupies the previous space where Axis Bar and Lounge used to sit, is the latest addition to the bar scene in Singapore. Led by Bar Manager Michele Mariotti who was previously as The Berkley and The Savoy in London, the cocktails here are not for the fainthearted and the inventive food will leave you craving for more.

A Guide to Chillax (Free Drinks!) for American Express Platinum Members + Google Map Locations

A number of years ago, I wrote about the Chillax benefit for American Express Platinum members when I held the American Express Platinum Credit Card. It has been slightly over two years since my last official credit card with American Express and I have only recently gotten the brand new metal Platinum Card.

A Microbrewery in the Heart of Beijing Guomao’s CBD - Beersmith Gastropub (Hotel Jen Beijing)

When I visited Beijing last month in the summer, I stayed at the newly-built Hotel Jen Beijing which is a 5-star property located in the heart of Beijing's Guomao Central Business District (CBD). If you are thinking about getting from Singapore to Beijing, I highly recommend the SQ802 flight (check out my experience in Business Class HERE!) which will get you there by 2:40PM. One of the things that truly impressed me during my stay was the existence of a microbrewery within the hotel - these beers are then served in the Beersmith Gastropub ((鲜啤吧) which is connected to the main lobby of the Hotel Jen Beijing.
