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. The concept will be that of a warm, casual, friendly neighborhood hangout with a minimalist Bar, Kitchen & Bottle Shop vibe, and a modern yet timeless ambience directed towards a simpler lifestyle.
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. Other highlights include a 1.2 kg meat platter with fries and coleslaw, enough for 5 people and priced at only $88 nett.
Family BBQs powered by Sidecar Handcrafted will be held every Sunday with two seating options available, 11am to 2pm and 3pm to 6pm. Orders will be taken dim-sum style, and served at tables for sharing with free-flow options of Aperol Spritz and all beer on draft for a bargain $42 nett. JOMO is bringing to Singapore chicken-salted fries that are hugely popular in Australia, a must-try on their menu.
JOMO will have over 250 wines and spirits, including 40 gins by the bottle, and 50 wines at $50 nett per bottle. JOMO’s super-dry low-carb lager beer will be available together with four beers on tap at $8 nett per pint ($6 nett during Happy Hour). 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.
JOMO – Holland Village is located in a three-storey hidden gem that has distinctive window-panes and a pointed roof at the end of Lorong Mambong Road in Holland Village.
Happy Hour is from 3pm to 6pm, Monday to Saturday.

Junior The Pocket Bar has opened its doors at a new location on Ann Siang Hill. Formerly part of The Proof Collective, Junior The Pocket Bar is now independently owned by proprietor, Joe Alessandroni, with Hazel Long helming the bar and Peter Chua remaining Bartender in Residence and also becoming an equity partner in the business, Junior Productions Pte Ltd.
Providing guests with the same intimacy and cosiness that Junior is known for, the space currently seats 25 people, and offers a refresh to its latest menu, with some exciting additions.
A locally rooted, modern bar, Junior The Pocket Bar works with local artists and craft producers to showcase the flavours and traditions of the world’s great drinking cultures, reinterpreted for a modern cocktail bar. Junior will retain its rotating concept while establishing a core Junior identify that will remain the backbone of the bar programme.
The updated menu sees the introduction of Junior’s Homebrew & Highballs, which will remain a staple on the menu. These low concept, flavour driven house fermented beverages can be with alcohol (make it boozy) or without (keep it boujee). Flavours include Thai Ginger Beer with mixed ginger, curry spice and sour tamarind (can be spiked with dark rum), and Lacto Lime Soda with salt-cured citrus, lime leaf and soda (with the option to add tequila). Junior’s core menu also includes Eat The Rich, a selection of culinary cocktails paired with a decadent small bite, such as the Deviled Egg Martini with Hendrick’s Orbium Gin, botanical infused white port, East India sherry, and grapefruit bitters, served with a Caviar Deviled Egg. A small selection of natural wines, craft beers, and fine spirits rounds out the drink offerings.
Junior’s current concept, Washi is inspired by the bars in Shinjuku’s Golden Gai with a funky, playful twist on the 1980’s Bubble Era Tokyo. The bar’s fifth volume sees origami cocktails such as the Crane, with kyoho grape, Sakura vermouth, cognac and lemon, the Rabbit with miso roast carrot aqavit, honey, lemon and Junmai sake, and the Panda with genmaicha vermouth, sparkling sake botanic vodka and pickled bamboo shoot.
The bar snacks menu has a couple of items that take a nod to the Washi theme with the Tako Wasabi marinated octopus calamansi, wasabi and the Roast Pumpkin Hummus with yellow miso, furikake vegetable crudites. Signature Sandos include the Mala Hot Chicken fried sandwich with Szechuan sauce, purple cabbage slaw and pickled pineapple and the French Dip Bành Mí with slow-cooked beef shank, onion jam, fresh herbs and spiced beef jus.
