PARKROYAL on Beach Road's Club 5 transforms into a modern destination bar - the new 'IT' social place to hit for craft cocktails, delectable bar nibbles and great music.
Explore past and present cultures through a selection of craft cocktails inspired by the diverse history of the neighbourhood gem, Kampong Glam. Fully refurbished with a new sleek interior, Club 5 will also serve up delicious bar nibbles, which are modern interpretation of classic heritage fare that takes inspiration from the rich flavours and spices of the Southeast Asian region.
Club 5's head bartender, Jun Han brings his expertise and love of putting a local spin to classic cocktails to the newly transformed destination bar, Club 5. This dynamic individual has over five years of experience in F&B, specialising in bartending. Armed with an insatiable appetite for learning, his knowledge of spirits, cocktails and avant-garde techniques – including his own rendition of spiced Rum and infused Tequila – is impressive. He relishes the opportunity to showcase a cocktail programme that proudly embraces the culturally rich areas of Beach Road, Kampong Glam and Bugis that surround PARKROYAL on Beach Road.
“Creating the perfect cocktail is not just about mixing spirits. It is a journey filled with curiosity behind the story of what makes each drink one of a kind. As a bartender, the best feeling is seeing someone’s face light up when they try something new or when they have finally found the drink” shared Jun Han. “I love experimenting and incoporating local flavours as it adds a touch of home and gives deep meaning to each drink. Ultimately however, the flavours have to be balanced to give an all-round delightful experience.”
Jun Han was the 2019 Campari Bartender Champion, representing Singapore in Milan, where he emerged among the Top 14. Other achievements include second place at the 2019 Remy Martin Barrel-Aged Competition, Top 8 at the 2019 Black Cow Vodka Competition and Top 8 at the Bartender Society Saint James SEA Competition.
F&B newcomer The JOMO Group will launch their first neighbourhood bar + kitchen + bottle shop ‘JOMO’ in the bustling Holland Village locale in early January 2021. This venue will be the first of five that The JOMO Group plans to open around neighbourhoods in Singapore, with the view of offering high-quality cuisine coupled with beverages at a very accessible price point.
JOMO aims to become a local hot spot for guests looking for a wide selection of drinks and dishes that are family-friendly and affordable.

To be open 7-days a week, JOMO will offer dine in and take-away options. The family-friendly menu will have a wide selection of dishes including aged Aussie angus burgers, deep-fried pork belly, and homemade pies all from master butchers Sidecar Handcrafted.

Take-away 2.5L beer pouches will also be offered at $28 nett, and there will be no surcharge for take-away or in-house dining.
“Our vision was to create a more stylish F&B experience than what is typically found around neighbourhoods, yet maintain that casual vibe and sense of community we all enjoy. We also wanted to stay away from the old and stuffy and bring back the vibrant, convivial feeling to a place where you know you will have top-quality food and drinks at a fantastic place to unwind, “said Group General Manager, Steve Yallop.
“To ensure the safety of our guests, we will be working with 'Equal Strategy' to use their latest technology 'Eco Pure Room', a patented and safe, NEA approved COVID-19 killing airborne sanitiser currently used in hospitals and leading global hospitality brands,” he added.
JOMO will feature a luscious alfresco area sweeping around the building, a full retail shop experience on the ground floor and a stylish, yet minimalistic restaurant and bar on the second floor.
