No, pottymouths. The name is Orgo with an 'o', not a 'y', and the only thing orgiastic about this elegant but low-key roof bar are the fresh fruit cocktails and the view across to Singapore's answer to the London Eye, the Singapore Flier.
These aren't just any fresh fruit cocktails, however. Created by Tokyo mixologist Tomoyuki Kithzoe, they are intriguing combinations of unusual flavours - all Asian, fresh and good. For example? A Passion Fruit Margarita, served, like all their Margaritas, frozen, comes rimmed with coffee salt, a fine grind of rock salt, black pepper and roasted coffee beans - a very intriguing flavour combination worth braving a cold nose for.
Other interesting stuff? Cocktails with fresh fruit and beer, original pairings like soursop and calamansi, and a Singapore Sling without the liqueurs, but with fresh ginger.
The space itself is pretty cute, with low dark seating in a fern-clad roof garden. Though whoever designed the glassed-in private booths should have borne the climate in mind: they steam up without even the excuse of an orgy.
