A sweet spot for after-work drinks, groovy tunes and delish bites, this breezy space has all you could ever want in a CBD hangout.
Work can be exhausting, we get it. But here’s a gem of a find that’ll help you toss aside those stresses. The best part? It’s right smack in the CBD, which means you don’t have to trek too far for post-work relaxation. Think instant tropical island vibes, just minutes away from your office in the concrete jungle.
Relax, just do it
Taking over a sleek space on the fifth floor of OUE Downtown Gallery, The Garden Club is a weekday rooftop escape with chic indoor seating and an alfresco area that’s perfect for chilling with friends. Just like its name suggests, the place is brimming with pockets of lush greenery, complemented by the warm twinkle of lights at the bar. Psst… it’s especially lovely on leisurely evenings as live bands and DJs serenade you with acoustic melodies. Lovebirds, take note: Performances go on every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night from 7:30pm.
Besides healthy bowls at lunch, the menu serves up plant-based items (great for vegans and vegetarians), as well as hearty meats and pastas. Order a couple of small plates like grilled king oyster mushrooms and smoked baby corn to share before you tuck into tasty mains such as ragu fettuccine and slow-cooked beef cheek.
Drinks all night…
If you’re in the mood for a floral, fruity cocktail, we’d recommend the Kensington Cooler, a combination of Hendrick’s gin, Earl Grey, honey, lemon juice and dry lavender buds, or the Rasa Sayang, made with white wine, lychee, lemon soda and a sprinkling of dry rosebuds. Can’t get enough of the boozy concoctions? Go fresh with Jalisco Sunset, a blend of tequila, lime juice, pineapple juice and cilantro. Or get your whisky fix with Bukit Sunrise, which stirs pink guava, ginger and lemon juice into the mix.
Oh, and if you’re popping by for happy hour, you’ll be pleased to know that prosecco’s on the menu from 5pm to 8pm, alongside a wallet-friendly $5 line-up that includes draft beers, house pour wines and spirits from 12pm to 7pm. This way, you can wash down your work worries and toast to good vibes with great drinks – all at affordable prices, too!
