The bar is situated within Capitol Building, the very place where Joseph Balestier, the first US consul to Singapore, had a family home with wife Maria Revere (the daughter of Boston Tea Party revolutionary Paul Revere).

Among other things, Joseph Balestier had a farm in Singapore, where he grew pineapples and sugar cane, and it was said that he was able to make his own rum back in the day.

Maria Revere, on the other hand, donated a bell to commemorate the heroic actions of his father as a civil war midnight rider, just before the family returned back to their home country.

The bell, now part of National Museum of Singapore collection, was used to alert the locals that it was getting dark and that everyone should find safety or refuge within their homes.

Against this background, the bar has built a sizable rum collection and constructed a cocktail menu inspired around Joseph Balestier’s journey in Singapore and in homage to the entire heritage.

There is also a daily ringing of the bell at 8pm, and each person sitting at the bar is given a small cocktail from the friendly bartenders.
