Parliament Brings Groovy Retro American Bar Bustle to Keong Saik

The Bar Kakure Experience underscores Precision and Balance in Classic Cocktails

I hesitantly stepped into the lush wood-accented waiting area of Ki-Sho, an upmarket Japanese Omakase restaurant, in search of “The Bar Kakure” dressed in my casual ensemble of t-shirt and pants. Doubts rushed in as I started wondering whether I had unwittingly bumbled my way into the wrong building on this side of Orchard Road.

4 AM Pizza Bids Goodbye to Sentosa on A High Note

And thus… Out it came, the last pizza from the oven at Southside Interim Market and 4 AM Pizza ended its first chapter on a high.

Gibson’s new Chimera Menu Proves it’s Still the liveliest Bar in The Jigger & Pony Family

When you think of a bartender, most people would either think “stoic professional in a classy waistcoat” or “hipster showman emblazoned with tattoos“. What if I told you, there’s a place where the bartenders are a hybrid of the two? Introducing Gibson, a hidden bar that’s a member of the Jigger & Pony family.

Watching a fledgling concept blossom into a successful restaurant is always a heartwarming experience for me.
