For those business travelers making their way to Singapore, there’s a newly opened bar called Atlas Bar that is worth a visit.

Sitting in the lobby of the Parkview Square, which locals refer to as “The Batman Building,” per Bloomberg, the bar has a decidedly Gilded Age theme, with all the top-end wines, whiskeys, champagnes, and other spirits imaginable.

But where the Atlas really exceeds expectation is with its hand-curated collection of gin, which is now over 1,000 bottles—the largest such collection in the world—housed in “the three-story-tall gin tower with carved wooden columns and glass shelving that serves as the centerpiece of the room,” per the story.

According to the bar management, patrons can test gins from as far back as 1910.
