Believe it or not, bartenders are essential to every drinker’s life. They can be your wingman when your drinking buddy is MIA, instant nightclub guide for first timers, and of course the person who could satisfy the cravings of your sober tongue using their behind-the-bar skills.

Yes Please, the (new) coolest bar in town, is bringing in three world-class bartenders this month and we don’t want you to miss their bar takeovers, happening next week:

Din Hassan

We’re starting off strong with Ce La Vi Singapore’s head bartender, Din Hassan. He is already considered a veteran in this field and his strongest suit is curating perfect drinks to match the customer’s taste. To give us a taste of his world-class skill in cocktail mixing, he will be a guest bartender at Yes Please this coming August 4 from 7 to 10PM, so make sure you’re there to witness it.

Ian Burrell

When it comes to rum, who ya gonna call? Of course, Ian Burell, the global ambassador for rum and the founder of UK Rumfest and the Annual Golden Rum Barrel Awards. It’s not every day that you get the chance to drink a perfectly-curated rum by the global rum ambassador himself, so don’t miss out Ian’s bar takeover this August 8, from 10 to 11PM.

Cedric Mendoza

You know the saying “save the best for last”? While Cedric Allen Mendoza is Manila’s very own, he’s residing in Singapore at the moment and working as the head bartender of Manhattan at The Regent, a Four Seasons Hotel in Singapore, Top 4 Best Hotel Bar for Tales of the Cocktails, No. 11 World’s Best Bar in 2016 and recently hailed as No. 1 Asia’s Best Bar for 2017. Currently, he’s the 5th best bartender in the region and Man of the Hour of Drink Magazine Asia. No big deal, right? Catch this young talent in the local bar scene this August 10 from 10:30PM to 12:30AM.

Now it’s time to add these dates to your calendar and don’t forget to head out to Yes Please starting tonight!
