#ThirstyThursday: Get Boozed Up On Playful Peranakan-Inspired Cocktails At Bee Bee’s
SHARE WITH FRIENDS!
This new watering hole is unapologetically cheeky with its edgy vibe and drink offerings
Is it still immature for a grown adult to be tickled by the phrase: Anal sex?
While no one was in stitches, we still clutched our pearls and giggled like school girls when the wall-scratching of “KEEP CALM & COCKTAIL ANAL SEX” greeted us upon entering Boat Quay’s newest bar.
From the brothers behind affordable Taiwanese diner FIVE-TEN, Bee Bee’s is hidden in a second-floor space of a nondescript shophouse, where one may easily miss out if not for the namesake signboard that beckons with its yellow neon glares. Exuding character with its industrial-esque furniture and graffiti art-filled walls, the watering hole is a place to let your hair down in the good company of food, spirits and friends. Plus, the music playlist is sick.
Having chatted with bartender-owner Bryan Kishore, we learnt Bee Bee’s was named after his Peranakan mother, who, ironically, disapproved of her son’s venture.

So is Kishore’s act one of rebellion? Nah, more like a gesture of love if you asked us.
Spices are a major influence to Bee Bee’s potent pours, where customers will get to taste a flavourful mix of both Peranakan and Tiki cultures. But best of all, drinks are very affordable, with the priciest cocktail going at just $15!
Alongside three food items of tomato and burrata bruschetta ($6), tuna tartare bruschetta ($7) and pork belly rice bowl ($8), here are three bespoke cocktails you can expect at Bee Bee’s:
Sorry Not Sorry, $15
Inspired by the fruit drink found in most hawker centres, the Sorry Not Sorry features a spicy mix of red dragonfruit and soursop, before elevated by the essence of cachaça, lime, lemongrass, ginger, galangal, and kaffir lime leaf. The drink is a result of a two month-long period of research and development, which Kishore laboriously created out of solidarity to the LGBTQ community.
