On 1st of April 2008, Klee opened its door officially with three bartenders, two of whom are now at The Naked Finn… Wijaya and I.
Klee is fondly remembered as the first bespoke cocktail bar without a menu… offering 21 comfortably-spaced and individually-unique seats along the dining-height bar counter, where you can interact directly with the bartender and watch, while he crafts your favourite cocktail.
Looking back now, I can see that the philosophy behind Klee and The Naked Finn remains the same… less is more… and this desired 'less' can only be achieved with quality products.
Klee's approach to drinks mirrors The Naked Finn's with seafood - which begins with sourcing; at Klee, more than 24 different types of spirits/liqueurs were imported from UK, Brazil, USA and Japan as the range offered here in Singapore was rather basic then.
After eight months of focussing on our seafood, it is time for us to do something more for our bar, our cocktails… to bring back the essence of Klee in The Naked Finn and along the way, some old Klee classics and finesse.
Starting this Friday, 2nd of August 2013, Wijaya and I will be your bartenders from 10pm till late. It will be 1st of April 2008 all over again.
