A project jointly developed by JTC, Singapore Tourism Board and Enterprise Singapore, Design Orchard aims to nurture home-grown brands and profile local design talents. Housing retail, incubation and event spaces under one roof in the heart of Orchard Road, the clustering of designers at Design Orchard will foster collaboration and offer varied opportunities for designers to test-bed and commercialise their products.
Slated to open in early 2019, the 2.5-storey development is one of the initiatives under the Retail Industry Transformation Map (ITM), launched in September 2016. The Retail ITM envisions a thriving retail industry comprising a mix of highly productive omni-channel retailers, and local brands with global footprints, supported by a skilled and professional workforce.
As nurturing Singapore's design talent is integral to a pipeline of strong local retail brands that have capacity to internationalise, Design Orchard will provide a suite of support programmes that Singapore design talent can tap on for growth. Specifically, designers will be able to connect with overseas production partners and fashion associations, as well as get support for tradeshows and market access trips, business mentoring, training and other services.
Formerly known as a food enclave in Shaw Towers Bugis, Wild Market kicks it up a notch with a wonderfully ‘wild’ multi-play concept with fun rooms housing activities such as karaoke, nerf guns, video and board games – paired with communal dining and ice-cold drinks.
Mr Ruben Brandon, Co-Founder of Wild Market Pte Ltd says: “Why choose a single activity on a night out when you can enjoy a multiroom concept at Wild Market? Shoot nerf guns with your greatest nemesis as a target, sing your heart out in our karaoke room, or have a chill night out playing console games or old school board games while indulging quality beers and bites. It’s all about having a ‘wild’ night out with Wild Market.”
MICE events need not be stuffy and boring with Wild Market’s new concept. Special occasions such as solemnisations and birthdays with customers being able to rent out entire rooms and spaces within the establishment for their private use.
The spanking new Wild Market features four different rooms – Meet, Chill, Play, and Sing.
These communal spaces are free-to-use, however private rentals are available upon request with a minimum spend. The common areas at Wild Market feature a full-sized beer pong table, dart boards and a stage with live performances every Friday and Saturday.
Meet – Perfect for private dining, meetings and functions. It comprises a long 240cm table and a TV screen for presentations.
Chill – Self-explanatory, this beanbag seating room offers a plethora of board games and a gaming console complete with video games for a relaxing night out.
Play – This seasonal concept room starts off with nerf guns aimed at a target board. Add picture of nemesis on the target board to complete stress-relief therapy.
Sing – Amateur hobbyist or professional singer, this KTV room is completely soundproof and free for all.
No night out is complete without an array of mouth-watering dishes and ice-cold drinks. Wild Market serves a variety of Japanese-inspired tapas and local delights that would regale any group looking for a good night out.
Wild Market’s drinks menu from their "Wild Bar" also shows off a plethora of beers on tap, affordable wines and cocktails.
Started with the aim of encouraging entrepreneurs to try their hands at the unforgiving F&B scene in Singapore, "Bazaar" at Wild Market offers a fully-functional space for budding restauranteurs to test out their ideas at $0 rental with a month-long lease period to test the market. Interested parties can contact Wild Market via their Facebook page.
