    Crockery shops?
    I believe the crockery shop near MS Colour sells those steel cocktail shakers.
    U can check it out the next time u pass there.

    Wide range of liquors?
    Meidiya Supermarket at Liang Court have a selection of liquors. But the range is primarily Sake. I did see a couple of ang mor liquors as well. U can try Carrefour Plaza Sing? I think they've got a section on level 1 that has got this whole range of wines and stuff like dat.

    Alternatively, try Changi Airport.

    best place to get alcohol is from DFS at the airport (duh)

    since this is for home use.. i suggest getting ppl to buy for you and slowly extend your collection.

    imo .. for a proper bar.. you should have at least

    2 kinds of vodka
    dark and light rum
    whisky
    beer
    scotch
    gin

    alot of different mixers (tonic+club soda+juices) + lime + lemon + sugar syrup

    you might want some vermouth for those james bond wannabes j/k

    what else... glasses + lots and lots and lots of ice

    Adam, depending on how 'hard-core' you want your home bar to be, general bar equipment can be easily gotten from IKEA (cheap, functional but not very high class) to the most expensive crystal ware. Search the large department stores like Tangs (basement) to get a general idea of what's available (a LOT!).

    IF you're thinking of a full-bar set-up, then you need to also consider the actual bar erection, and all necessary fixtures like a storage space, sink and mini fridge, as well as glass storage racks.

    If it's just for fun, and you want to keep costs low, go for the most important things first - the ingredients, cheap glasses and accessories and expand/upgrade later on.

    CHEERS!

    James Bond wannabes??? Well, seems like a slap in the face for all the martini drinkers .... but then Mr. Bond himself is not that authentic either .... vodka martini ...yuks
