If you’re tired of squeezing with throngs of people at clubs, or if you want a more sophisticated night out, there’s a light on the horizon for you. LuLu’s Lounge at the Pan Pacific Hotel brings you back to the Bronx in 1960s with their neon signs and jazzy feel.

Opened by Joshua and Sarissa Schwartz, this husband and wife team from SJS Group is no stranger to the Singaporean nightlife scene, with Bang Bang and Employees Only Singapore under their belt.

The walls inside are painted with a specific UV paint that reveal more details when the lights change, which I thought was an interesting touch; it reminded me of the graffiti that used to be prevalent along the streets of the Bronx.

The Whisky Pucker Up ($25) was the perfect starter drink. The lemon juice added tartness and acidity, making it a refreshing drink while the addition of maple syrup left a slightly sweet aftertaste.

I also thought that the addition of the lipstick branding on the napkins and certain drinks was a nice touch, adding to the mystery of the fictional owner, LuLu.

If sour drinks aren’t your thing, Big Coconuts ($24) might be more up your alley. A Pina Colada-esque drink, it’s made with vodka, kaffir lime syrup and coconut cream.

There’s definitely a hit from the vodka, but the sweetness of the coconut cream is the dominant flavour, making it easy to drink through the night.

Of course, good drinks deserve to be paired with good music, and people who enjoy watching live performances will be in for a treat at LuLu’s Lounge. From live acoustic performances to international DJs, you will be able to enjoy music all night without having to shout over it to speak to friends.

Shaken or stirred, that is the question — Martini fans will appreciate A Little Dirty, A Little Cheesy ($26). The dry, dirty martini is made with a splash of vodka, and served with two olives stuffed with blue cheese. I liked the olives, which went well with the creaminess of the blue cheese.

Another refreshing drink, the Lulu And Louie Forever ($26) is made with Hendrick’s gin, cucumber water, mint and lemon juice. The mint and lemon juice combination resulted in a tangy, refreshing cocktail, while I enjoyed the herbal notes from the gin.

As the night was winding down, I decided to get the Double Cappucino Martini ($28). What better way to end the night than with coffee and alcohol?

What I did not expect was the chocolatey flavour imparted from the coffee mocha syrup, along with the strong coffee aroma from the Vietnamese slow drip coffee used. Creamy, chocolate-y and definitely packing a punch, this was definitely my favourite drink of the night.

Expected damage: $24 – $60 per pax
