In Singapore, the Morton’s Atrium Bar has  long been one of the most popular bars in the city, thanks largely to the exceptional offerings of the “Mortinis Hours” of 5pm-7pm on week nights when the iconic Morton’s Martinis are attractively priced and served with complimentary filet mignon steak sandwiches.
