The Old Man Singapore

Every drink has a story

When Ernest Hemingway completed his manuscript for ‘The Old Man and the Sea’, he wrote to his publisher that he felt that it was his best work yet. Sure enough, the book went on to win a Pulitzer Prize in 1953 and is the last significant piece of work of fiction by him before he took his life in 1961.

The Old Man Singapore name takes after this great literary work and honours Hemingway by taking inspiration from his novels, history, and folklore.

Literary giant Hemingway had quite a colourful life. The Old Man Singapore’s latest menu is inspired by his experiences, and the women he loved. The innovative drinks attempt to distil the memories associated with Hemingway’s journey, invoking a sense of nostalgia for a distant past, for romantic and tragic relationships, as well as adventure and travel.
