Joining the many bars and eateries popping up along Beach Road is The Armoury, a contemporary gastrobar set in a stunning black-and-white building that was once a British armoury.
A great blend of old and new, the bar retains its rustic brick and concrete walls and features vintage tiles and copper ceilings, while its backdrop is one of Singapore’s newest icons, The South Beach Hotel. Another interesting mix can be seen in The Armoury’s bar food menu – try the cheeseburger spring rolls ($8), which aren’t as oily as you’d think!
There’s also a large range of American whiskey, craft beers and daring cocktails. If you have visitors in town, head to this place after you’ve hit Raffles Hotel.
