Select bars across the districts of Bayfront, Chinatown, East Coast, and Riverwalk are set to turn a tad more orange during the first two weekends of July, what with Aperol bringing their bar crawl experience to Singapore for the very first time.
Having already taken place in several European cities, the Join The Joy activation here is part of Aperol’s efforts to showcase the iconic Aperol Spritz cocktail the way it’s meant to be enjoyed – while having fun socialising and snacking on appetisers.
The bitter-sweet mix of Aperol, prosecco, and soda water garnished with a slice of orange takes centrestage from July 2-3 and 9-10, where self-guided bar crawls and guided aperitivo experiences will be taking place.

For the self-guided bar crawls, simply purchase a ticket (S$72.50) to either the Bayfront, Chinatown, East Coast, or Riverwalk locales, and you’ll be entitled to a stamp card and goody bag (stashed with a hand fan, sunglass, and mineral water) to be picked up at the district’s starting bar.
Each district will feature 5 bars, and those on the bar crawl will get to have an Aperol Spritz inclusive at each of the bars. After kicking things off at the starting bar (for instance at The Guild for those who chose Chinatown), the order in which you visit the other venues is completely up to you.
Meanwhile, the guided aperitivo experience brings ticket holders to the same four districts, but to just 3 venues and with food pairings – such as a serving of Miso Dirty Fries at Potato Head Singapore – plus an Aperol Spritz ambassador to lead the way.
Bookings for the guided hop have to be made in pairs (S$132 for 2 persons, inclusive of 2 goody bags, drinks, and food), and at specific times and dates depending on the chosen district during the first two weekends of July.

Taking place on the evening of June 30 at the Aperol Spritz Garden in Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong, the sundown party will be a colourful affair full of Instagrammable moments, drinking games, live DJ sets, and of course, lots of Aperol Spritzes – first drink’s on the house.
