Running from 6 to 12 June, enjoy innovative cocktail creations and support charity at Negroni Week 2016.

Presented by Campari, Negroni Week was launched in 2013 in the USA as a celebration of one of the world’s greatest cocktail efforts to raise money for charitable causes around the world.

This year, Negroni Week promises to be even bigger and better as Singapore takes its place as one of the cocktail capitals in Asia. Over 30 bars are participating in this event, with bartenders tasked to put any spin they wish to the classic Negroni drink. Each bar has also picked a charity of choice which includes the ST pocket money fund, community chest, Food Bank Singapore, animal rescue, Nepal relief funds and more.

Some highlights of the week are as follows:
