Louder, sexier, sharper – kyÅ V2.0 – will be souped up with a spanking new system of a reconfigured dance floor; robust lighting and sound enhancements; additional furnishings; and of course, a bigger, sleeker DJ booth, elevating the music that pounds from the sophisticated American-built EAW sound system, breathing life onto the dance floor.
It's S$400,000, week-long facelift, which has been in the planning for a year, will transform and reinforce kyÅ as the choice clubbing destination, along with a conducive bar atmosphere. And, staying true to its founding spirit, it remains to be the only dance club in the metropolis that regularly features musically progressive artists (djs, producers and live acts) from around the world, including Singapore
The MARCH 2015 RELOAD & RECHARGE basement club will feature a total of five new programmes to a total of 15 music nights, from Wednesdays to Saturdays. Four new residents – Haan, Zig Zach, Michael and Titus – will join the stable of four other kyÅ long-time names, bringing to a total of eight residents.
The club has also commissioned visual artist and designer Lucus Burrows to produce original digital visual works, followed by another series of graphic installations in collaboration with Heineken.
More directional. Better coverage. Warmer. That is what one can expect from its revamp from the enhanced electro-acoustics at kyÅ, which is adding four more EAW subwoofers to its existing set-up; more tops (speakers); and two more amplifiers stacked up in a cabinet at the new DJ booth, to beef the sound and power. All these add to the improved coverage within the club, alongside lighting enhancements.

Trace is a new multi-sensory club, bringing something unique to the clubbing scene in Singapore.
Its name is conceptualized to anchor a guiding path for a new community of club-goers and party people. As a physical translation of this "path", Trace placed emphasis on its lasers, light shows and premier sound system to establish itself as a premium VIP bottle service club with the full dance experience.
Within its compact lounge seating layout, you will enter in a experiential black box of surprises; multi-dimensional architectural light shows, pulsating 3D projection mappings, programmed LED outlining lights, in-built smoke machines and top-of-the-game surround sound speakers.
Trace's interior decor and lighting effects are designed by Director Bu Shukun, who runs Architology Interiors Pte Ltd.

A prominent DJ console is anchored with a full 3D projection mapped wall. Within the symmetrically-laid out club, the 3 dance catwalk platforms provide full visual connectivity around the space. Premium alcohol bottles line the bar display, promptly served with dazzling light shows to various VIP tables.
The Bar & Billiard Room at Raffles Hotel marks a new era with its return to a storied and sophisticated, yet relaxed bar and lounge specialising in whisky, original and imaginative cocktails, craft beers and high quality cigars.
Noted as the oldest existing bar in its original location in Singapore, the Bar & Billiard Room will now present up to 400 curated whiskies alongside an entirely new cocktail list and bar menu.
With a beautiful room and outdoor covered terraces, the unique and historic setting at Bar & Billiard Room naturally lends itself to the new evolution. The Bar & Billiard Room will also serve as an everyday meeting place as well as for special occasions.
Christoph B. Nyfeler shares his 16 years of whisky experience as Raffles Singapore’s Resident Whisky Expert. Of the 400 hand selected whiskies, many are limited editions and directly imported for the bar. The whisky list boasts a strong Scottish presence with a good selection of American bourbons and Japanese whiskies rounding off the collection.
To add special interest, Christoph will host whisky events such as whisky appreciation masterclasses and whisky dinners regularly. He can also create exclusive whisky pairing menus for groups and corporate events of up to 20 people. You can share your individual taste preferences with Christoph who will then customise a dinner menu where courses are paired with different types of single malt whiskies.
Equal attention has been given to the new whisky-led cocktails created by Raffles Singapore Restaurant and Bar Operations Manager Randolph Velasco and his award-winning bartenders. With special skills and knowledge of infused liqueurs and house-made bitters, the team have based the bar’s new concoctions on classic cocktails with a modern twist in Menu highlights include the BBR 1896, a nod to the year the Bar & Billiard Room was established. The complex cocktail is a delight for the senses; the bourbon is first fat-washed in butter for a creamy mouth feel and savoury flavour, mixed with Angostura bitters, smoked with chamomile tea leaves for a subtle, floral aroma and finally garnished with a slice of orange peel.
The Old Nick was a favourite tipple for navy officers who needed some liquid courage before heading out to sea. The Bar & Billiard Room’s version is a combination of Scotch whisky, thyme liqueur, Dom Benedictine, orange and lemon bitters. The comprehensive cocktail menu encompasses other base spirits such as gin, tequila and vodka as well. Look forward to the Miss “H”, Randolph’s take on the ubiquitous martini featuring kiwi, Cointreau, lime, and muddled kiwi fruit.
Bar bites include a selection of sophisticated nibbles and more substantial sharing plates. An array of cold and hot dishes can either be enjoyed as an accompaniment to drinks or as full-fledged meal. Menu highlights include Crabmeat Cigars, shredded fresh crab meat wrapped in vine leaves.
For a sweet finish in keeping with the bar's theme, Chocolate Whisky Stones are available in three different flavours – dark, milk and white chocolate. The chocolate is first melted down and infused with whisky before being placed in moulds to resemble the whisky stones commonly used to chill the spirit without diluting the drink.
The Bar & Billiard Room also houses one of the five original billiard tables from the turn of the century and you are invited to have a game over drinks. On Friday and Saturday evenings, the bar will feature live jazz.

As Déliciae’s founder and CEO Olivier Bendel believes that every bar has a shelf life, a revamp seemed only natural for 83 Club Street – the oldest bar on Club Street. 83 was free, fun and a bit decadent – this will remain the same with Bumbo Rum Club.
Olivier had always imagined a place filled with fun and laughter over tantalizing food and specialty cocktails. Bumbo, a word that evokes playfulness and gaiety, is a perfect representation of that belief. As a connoisseur of the notorious pirates’ drink, he wanted Rum to be the focus. Bumbo, also a drink made from rum, water, sugar and nutmeg, was a hot favorite in the Caribbean when piracy was rampant. With such delicate nuances in the word, Bumbo Rum Club was thus conceived.
Further inspiration by muses such as the iconic Caribbean palm tree and the Caribbean Sea helped conceptualize BRC’s overall design. An aged-barrels feature wall additionally instills a sense of rusticity reminiscent of olden day pirate ships and Caribbean holidays. One novel and unique highlight of BRC is the Bumbo Bell, which resembles an antique Ship’s Bell. Whoever rings the bell, must buy shots for everyone inside the club! Once the bell is rung, BRC will close its doors within 3 minutes. Everyone inside then gets a special BRC shot from the bell-ringer. Join the BRC Hall Of Fame by buying the most shots.
Boasting a whopping collection of 76 rums from more than 20 countries, 7 homemade infused rums as well as 25 exquisite rum cocktails, BRC was created for rum lovers. Cocktail aficionados, try the signature Bumbo Rum Club Cocktail for a sweet touch. Or get adventurous with Discover The Bumbo Rum Club – made with four different rums and BRC secret ingredients! Choose from four enticing punch bowl flavors for sharing if you are more than two; or simply work your way through all.
The mouth-watering menu of Caribbean goodness will also be more than enough to keep your palate satisfied throughout the night. Influenced by South American, Caribbean and South USA cuisine and using only the finest and freshest ingredients, the food at BRC will explode a myriad of flavors in your mouth.
Want a tasty refreshing appetizer? Choose from their Salmon, Sea Bass or Prawn Ceviches; or get a trio for sampling. For some zest and slight spice, order the Cuban Tomato Tartine – a delicious concoction of toasted garlic bread, juicy tomatoes, cheese and bits of jalapenos. Carnivores, go for the delectable Costillas de Cerdo
(Blackcurrant Pork Ribs). Melt-in-your-mouth tenderness mixed with a subtle sweetness of fresh blackcurrants will create a magical combination that leaves you wanting more.
With special themed programs lined up every night, you will always be entertained. Step into Bumbo Rum Club and be transported to the world of Caribbean sensuality and tastes.
