Another one bites the dust - we say farewell to one of the coolest laid-back pubs in town.
People’s Park Complex is the last place you’d think of when planning a chill night of drinks with friends – especially with the many drinking spots to go to in Chinatown. But this Brutalist-style building is also home to one of the cosiest pubs in town, Lepark. Not for much longer though, the beloved hangout spot is closing its doors on 30 September.
In a Facebook post, the LePark team detailed that for reasons beyond their control, the joint would be moving out at the end of the month after three years of settling in on the carpark rooftop of People’s Park Complex. During its three years as tenants, the folks of Lepark have consistently put on events and programmes that hit a sweet spot with the public: we’ll miss those flea markets and movie screenings and mini-festivals (remember Getai Electronica, which drew popular local musicians, .gif and Disco Hue?).
You can’t deny that Lepark brought back a sense of community that you don’t find in other establishments – the awesome Mod-Sin grub was only a bonus. While we’ll miss the gig nights, crab sliders, chicken rice sushi and craft beer, it’s not a definite goodbye from the group as they have begun planning the next chapter. For now, business goes on as usual so bid farewell by dropping by for a pint and snack.
The last day of operations will be marked by the We Remember! festival, aimed at redefining dementia through music, photography, film and yoga. Lepark has always been committed to supporting social causes and bringing people together.
Lepark, 1 Park Rd, #06-00 People’s Park Complex, Singapore 059108
