Park90 wine bar is a new f & b outlet on the ground floor space at the Regent Hotel, Singapore. We are always impressed by this grand hotel along Cuscaden Road. Not because it is new or fancy, but because it is so well maintained. Every part of the common areas (other than the carpark) seems almost new and spotless. So when we heard of the new Park90 wine bar that opened at Regent Hotel, we were there to check it out.
At first, the name “Park90” of this new wine bar at Regent Hotel did not make any sense. Only after we read the description in their website that it made sense to us. It is a wine bar with up to 1000 types of wine rated 90 points and above by Robert Parker Wine Advocate. The food at the Park90 is complemented by dishes from other outlets of the hotel – the Italian restaurant Basilico and Chinese restaurant Summer Palace.
The parade of bottles of wine on display at the front of the Park90 wine bar and the battalion of wine glasses standing in formation inside made it clear that we had arrived at the right place. It is open only from 6 pm onwards.
Park90 Wine List and Food Menu
Here are pictures of sample pages from the Park90 wine list and food menu. The range of wines available starts from around $60 to the wallet-busting bottles from Burgundy, such as the legendary Domaine Romanee Conti, Romanee Conti. The 2009 DRC is priced at an eye-watering $27,500. 15 types of wine, mostly affordable labels, are available by the glass.
We tried a few of the wines by the glass. Priced mostly around $18 per glass, they were certainly reasonably priced. The Pouilly Fuisse and the German riesling that we tried that day were not the most complex wines but certainly very pleasant and made more enjoyable by the beautiful setting. This is certainly a place on our shortlist to go for a glass or two. I notice that they change the wines by the glass quite frequently. Today’s list on the website looks different from the one we had that day. Which makes it even more fun.
For food to go with the wine, we chose a mix of local and Western. The Hokkien Mee ($24) was pretty good. It probably has more seafood ingredients than the one from Mei Ling Street hawker centre but the broth was less intense.
We selected the Fish & Chips ($38) because it is the sort of food that just would go so well with white wine. The fish and chips at Park90 were certainly good – we could taste the fish in them. But the price made it one of the most costly f & c that we have tried recently.
