Fresh from a renovation complete with a Sakura- themed new look, Gram Café & Pancakes at VivoCity Mall is now ready to take a break and have a Kit Kat with a new limited-edition Gram x KITKAT® menu!
In conjunction with its relaunch, Gram is excited to debut a series of premium Kit Kat pancakes, frappes, and soft serve, headlined by a Gram x KITKAT® Premium Matcha Pancakes as an ode to the Sakura theme of the new space.
The Osaka souffle specialist is looking to all things Japanese for the new outlet, including a menu made with Japan’s popular chocolate finger wafers, KITKAT®! Together, Osaka souffle pancakes, Kit Kat, and matcha serve to bring about three Japanese favourites in one place.
After a month-long renovation, Gram Café & Pancakes unveils a new look that is a nod to Japan with pastel pinks and baby blues dressing a bigger new space for sweets and treats. Rounded archways and plush cushions make for a welcoming invite, all anchored around a towering faux tree laden with lush pink sakura in full bloom. Whether you’re looking for a quick sweet fix or idle the afternoon away at Gram Café & Pancakes, there’s always a smile with pancakes.
Beginning 18th September, the KITKAT® menu will be available for order exclusively at the VivoCity outlet for three months as part of Gram’s reopening menu.
The star of the show is the Limited Edition Gram Premium Matcha Pancakes made with KITKAT® (S$22.90). Three discs of matcha souffle pancakes are served with a side of Kit Kat Chocolate Soft Serve, finished off with chocolate rasps, Kit Kat matcha chocolate bar, strawberries, and house-made butter and whipped cream. On the side, more Kit Kat sauce awaits to add to the indulgence should you prefer.

Waku Ghin is back after extensive renovation works, offering the brilliance of Chef Tetsuya Wakuda over a widened repertoire that spans contemporary bar experiences, private dining and their signature Chef’s Table.
Their signature Omakase experience remains the ultimate pilgrimage for gourmands. The bespoke dining journey begins at the stylish Japanese cocktail bar helmed by their Head Bartender Kazuhiro Chii. After a tipple or two, diners can proceed to the exclusive 10-seater Chef’s Table, where a chef personally attends to each party of guests. Similar to the previous Waku Ghin, diners are treated to a sensory feast of craftsmanship on display, as they savour Waku Ghin’s seasonal menu, featuring our famed marinated botan shrimp with sea urchin and oscietria caviar, alongside seasonal delights such as the prized Western Australian pearl meat.
A selection of fresh grill items is also available as part of the enhanced Omakase menu. Diners can choose from a wider range of premium beef cuts and seafood for the day, ranging from ohmi wagyu and aburi sukiyaki, to fresh carabinero and scampi. Draw a close to the indulgent meal over intricate desserts at their private dessert room, tucked away at the back of the restaurant overlooking the expansive mall and glistening waterfront.
Following a multimillion-dollar asset enhancement programme spanning nine months across key facilities within the hotel, Orchard Hotel has unveiled an enhanced 360° guest experience with reimagined dining, events and lodging offerings. Upgraded areas include the hotel’s 260 Grand Deluxe Rooms, Grand Ballroom, Conference Centre, Lobby, The Orchard Cafe and Bar Intermezzo.
The storied history of Orchard Hotel traces back to late 1950s, where it began as a humble four-storey, 34-room hotel, complete with The Golden Venus – home to popular tea dances and emerging musicians of the 1960s. Redeveloped in the 1970s to cater to the tourist boom, the old building was eventually demolished in 1978, and the first inkling of the 656-key, twin-tower Orchard Hotel Singapore as it exists today took its place.
A brand new arrival experience welcomes guests through an enlivened lobby interior. The hotel's iconic clock tower is now brought to the modern age with a contemporary chandelier-inspired art sculpture, flanked by two upgraded dining and drinking destinations. The Orchard Cafe renews its legacy as a local dining icon with a vibrant new style and Signature Class buffet showcasing heritage-inspired creations and chef-curated classics. Bar Intermezzo inherits an air of sophistication with new, inviting interiors and contemporary botanical-influenced cocktails that toast to Orchard Road’s past. Overlooking the lobby from the second floor is Cantonese fine dining stalwart Hua Ting Restaurant, which was also given its own extensive makeover in 2018.
New and improved event solutions for every occasion come on the back of 11 refurbished conference and function rooms and spaces – now each more versatile than ever. A key highlight includes one of Singapore’s largest pillar-free grand ballrooms—occupying over 10,000 square feet and six metres high—refitted with a luxurious fresh new look, two floor-to-ceiling LED walls (a first in Singapore), statement lighting, state-of-the-art audio-visual capabilities, an impressive foyer lined with floating Orchid-inspired chandeliers, and exclusive spaces carved out for various uses. The conference centre has also been redesigned with five intimate meeting rooms and upgraded meeting facilities. Event planners will now have the luxury of choice with creative catering options from the hotel’s four award- winning culinary concepts—Hua Ting Restaurant, The Orchard Cafe, Mon Bijou and Bar Intermezzo—as well as a Halal-certified kitchen, ensuring that all tastes and diets are catered for.
260 Grand Deluxe guest rooms in the hotel’s Orchard Wing have also been given a facelift. Each well-appointed room has been elegantly designed to provide maximum comfort and the best of living styles at every turn. With today's sophisticated traveller at heart, the newly refurbished rooms are now equipped with upgraded amenities including Handy smartphone that offers unlimited mobile data to make local and select international calls; six USB ports and both wired and wireless high-speed internet to ensure 24/7 connectivity; and a Smart TV loaded with a variety of channels to keep them plugged into current affairs. Unwind after a long day of shopping along the famed Orchard Road in the modern comforts of the new Grand Deluxe room – put on a bath in the luxurious Japanese soaking tub (select room configurations), or call for one of 12 signature spice-based cocktails from Bar Intermezzo to be delivered right to your room.
Cineleisure, the destination mall managed by Cathay Organisation, is proud to unveil its refreshed look, while welcoming three new and exciting concepts.
Forming a striking visual interplay of colours and textures, the revamped Cineleisure reveals interiors fitted with concrete juxtaposed against rustic wood timber. The playful balance between gritty accents and polished design, with a purposeful blend of warm earthy hues and cool steel palettes, add a distinctively dynamic element to the popular youth-oriented mall.
The pairing of fun and playful elements also extends to its eclectic mix of food, fashion, and entertainment tenants. This April, Cineleisure welcomes the addition of three new and hotly anticipated concepts—Tenkaichi Japanese BBQ and Shabu Shabu, The Alley Luxe, and Amazing Castle, of which the latter two are making its debut in Singapore
Maggie Joan’s celebrates three years of being the underground place to go to with a new chef, revamped menus and refreshed interiors.

Maggie Joan’s cuisine has flair & finesse and is unremitting in its quest for artisanal flavours.
The restaurant is named after the 2 grandmothers of co-owner Daniel Ballis because it seeks to embody the women’s big-hearted stance on good food and social bonding that makes it warmly appealing to a contemporary audience.
