2 Jiak Chuan Road
Set in a heritage four-storey shophouse on Jiak Chuan Road in Chinatown’s Keong Siak belt, Lime House opened its doors in 2013 and introduced the Caribbean concept of “liming”, which means hanging out with friends. It is a mecca of gatherings, making connections and collaborating, authoritatively housing not only good vibes but new friends and a passion for all things Caribbean.
36 Keong Saik Road
Potato Head Singapore has the intimate feel of a private house; the first floor is the kitchen – the dynamic burger restaurant Three Buns; the second its living room – a relaxed restaurant with table service; the third its private studio – a decadent drinking den; and the rooftop its garden – a tropical open-air bar. The different rooms of the house are a haven in the heart of the city, a retreat for Singapore’s creative crowd from the arts, fashion, film, music and design worlds.
The Shoppes At Marina Bay Sands
Sophistication meets casual dining at Bread Street Kitchen, where vintage blends with modern, and the music is as eclectic as the décor. Located at the vibrant spot by the waterfront, the al fresco bar serves well-known classics, innovative cocktails, as well as a large collection of world wines. Bread Street Kitchen is about fun, tapping into the culture; more than anything, coming into a relaxed environment.
102 Amoy Street
Sugarhall features unconventional beats of Jamaican Reggae & old-school ska, lightbulbs in mason jars suspended by hemp ropes with a wood-clad interior evoking a rustic ambience. Bartenders are dressed in checks and nothing says modern barnyard more than Sugarhall - the lates entrant to Amoy Street’s bar scene.
42 Hong Kong Street
Singapore’s first Latin American bar and open kitchen. With a vibrant and colorful atmosphere, right in the heart of the central business district. Vasco holds Latin culture with a well-executed menu displaying a fusion of street food and killer cocktails. The ambience of Vasco also lends itself to the unique décor and the romantic hospitality.
