“Tucked away on the 2nd floor of the Chinatown Complex hawker center, this place might be difficult to find but they're always reliable for having good tasty craft beers on tap!”

Restaurant
“This uber cool restaurant also offers two distinct spaces to suit your mood. For something a little more intimate, the 90-seat dining room is ideal for working lunches or a romantic treat. But if a laid-back vibe is more your thing, the casual lounge terrace overlooking the iconic infinity pool is an ideal space for al fresco entertaining. Either way, be sure to make the most of the whopping wine cellar that stocks over 600 bottles of wine and champagne. Yes, we know it’s lunchtime but it would be rude not to indulge. Hic!”
