01Colombo Supper Club’s last edition featured the creations of Singaporean chef Damian D’Silva. Once again this month, they have teamed up with Jetwing Colombo Seven to host two of Singapore’s most innovating restauranteurs – Jennifer Lee and Christian Hartmann of contemporary Latin-American cocktail bar Vasco.

Singapore is a city where people enjoy trying new things, the nightlife and café culture are booming and the pace never slows down. Vasco remains fresh and contemporary with its offerings, the only Latin-American themed venue on the island.It takes influence from South American culture and celebrations; serving Mexican food on special festive days, made with the freshest ingredients and paired with only Latin American spirits.

Christian Hartmann found his true passion behind the bar and has worked in Copenhagen, Bangkok, and now resides in Singapore. The inspiration for Vasco came after a trip to South America, when he wanted to bring the vibrant nightlife experience he had there back to South East Asia. Having a love for South American spirits ensured that this new endeavour would be centred around a bar.

Head Chef Jennifer Lee is at the helm of a team made up of some of the finest chefs in the industry. She has worked in restaurants, bakeries and cafes all her life and is one of the few female head chefs in Singapore at the moment. Lee was based in Mexico City, reviewing as well as cooking at restaurants for a year prior to embarking on the Vasco journey.

The event in Colombo will feature classic cocktails crafted from the finest Latin American spirits. Vasco’s signature creations will be served alongside boldly flavoursome South American street food, elevated by pairings with the right beverage.
