Exotic Tiki cocktails served up at Cuban-inspired Bob’s Bar

Singapore, 13 April 2017 – Capella Singapore is excited to host the award-winning Tiki guru, Daniele Dalla Pola at its Bob’s Bar from 4 to 7 May 2017. Cocktail enthusiasts can look forward to a thrilling series of events, featuring special appearances of the fascinating individual, his intriguing tropical tipples, a Tiki MasterClass, as well as a lively Hawaiian fiesta.


Champion Mixologist Daniele Dalla Pola

Daniele is the bartender-owner of Nu Lounge Bar, a well-known rum bar in Bologna, Italy, which is also one of the world’s top 100 bars as rated by Drinks International Magazine. Passionate about Polynesian symbols and mythology, Daniele’s interpretation of mixology revolves around tropical and indigenous elements. His handcrafted creations often surprise guests as he ingeniously blends fresh, unique ingredients with a refined selection of spices and essences. Renowned for his skills and style, Daniele is well recognised in the bartending world, including being crowned World Champion of the 42Below Cocktail World Cup 2011 and Best Bartender in the Rum Category of the Madrid International Rum Fest 2015. 

Tropical Tiki Cocktails 


L-R: Daniele’s signature cocktails: Nu Mai Tai and Kama’aina’

Throughout the 4-day affair, guests are invited to enjoy Daniele’s summery favourites in the resort’s sun-drenched Bob’s Bar. The tiki master’s signatures are rich in ethnic flavour, strikingly garnished and served in unique tropical-themed vessels.

Some of the highlights that he will be bringing to Singapore include the Kama’aina’ (“kah-ma-aye-nah”), a fascinating medley of aged rums and tropical fruits served in a coconut shell. Guests can also look out for the Nu Mai Tai (“Noo-my-tah’ee”), Daniele’s signature tiki cocktail consisting of his special Nu Rum Blend, Orange Curaçao, aged Martinique Rhum and Passion Fruit Puree.

 Another must-try drink is his Sexy Colada, Daniele’s version of the all-time favourite classic cocktail with an irresistible twist. This creamy beverage is made with Bacardi Carta Oro, fresh coconut water and pineapple juice, ginger, as well as a special homemade ingredient. These tipples will be available at Bob’s Bar from 4 to 7 May at S$20++ each[1].
