From a lakeside pop-up in Melbourne to a saké specialist in downtown Singapore, here is our roundup of the most exciting new openings around the world.

January may be a tough month, with Christmas hangovers lingering on and calls for moderation shared at any given moment. However, that hasn’t stopped the world’s brightest and best bartenders from opening exciting new watering holes in recent weeks.

This month, we uncovered new openings from London to Singapore, including the latest project from former Artesian head bartender Remy Savage and an open air bar overlooking Melbourne’s business district.

If it’s saké you like, this month’s roundup also features a London saké specialist and a saké-focussed cocktail bar in central Singapore.

Take a look through our gallery to find out more about the hottest bars that opened in January.
