The National Parks Board (NParks) has opened the 5.4-hectare Cyclist Park, a new recreational space at East Coast Park. Featuring a longer view corridor of the marina vista, Cyclist Park boasts two new cycling circuits targeted at learners and experienced cyclists, a nature playgarden and F&B and retail outlets for families.
Located at Area D of East Coast Park, at the previous site of Goldkist Chalets, Cyclist Park is an active node, complementing the tranquillity of the nearby Raintree Cove that opened earlier this year. A one-stop hub for cyclists, visitors can practise cycling techniques at the two cycling circuits, as well as purchase and repair bicycles. It is also a stop along the Round Island Route (RIR).
The two circuits - the Learner Circuit and Advanced Circuit - are conducive spaces for cyclists to hone their skills. Beginners can attempt the 280-metre long Learner Circuit, where gentle slopes, large expanse of flat areas, and a mini BMX adventure trail help improve balance and stamina. The 500-metre long Advanced Circuit, with its undulating tracks, sharp turns, gradual granite steps and narrow bridge, provides a fun challenge for more experienced cyclists.
Open plazas with multiple entry points have replaced what was once the gated Goldkist Chalets and visitors can now enjoy unobstructed views of the sea. Visitors who seek a more tranquil experience can soak in the coastal ambience while lounging on terrazzo benches under the shelter of ketapang (Terminalia catappa L.) and handkerchief trees (Maniltoa browneoides). There are also two F&Bs, one convenience retail store and a bicycle retail shop that also run bicycle related workshops as well as repair services.
Families with children can enjoy a new nature playgarden at East Coast Park within the Cyclist Park. The playgarden uses natural materials such as upcycled wood to create curated play features for children to engage in spontaneous play amid nature. Young ones can develop a sense of discovery and train their balance at the simple obstacle course, and older children can try their hand at the 1.5-metre tall mini climbing wall installed with grips, that was fashioned from a log.
The opening of Cyclist Park marks the completion of the second of three phases in the rejuvenation of East Coast Park, which aims to create more open spaces and vistas of the sea, improve accessibility and enhance amenities. This follows the successful reopening of Raintree Cove earlier this year. The enhancement will be completed in 2020 with the opening of Big Splash.
Cyclist Park is located at East Coast Park Area D and is accessible via East Coast Park Service Road, via the underpass linking Mandarin Gardens to D3 Carpark and via Siglap Park Connector. The nearest bus stop is 90 metres away and is served by bus number 401.

Pasta Bar on Keong Saik Road is an intimate Italian & pasta restaurant by Chef Alessandro Guistetti.
Nothing is more Italian or more satisfactory to eat than a bowl of pasta. Known across Italy as “piatto unico” or “a complete meal” pasta has become a symbol of the Italian way of life – a symbol of family and friends gathering around the table to share, laugh, eat and create memories. At its simplest, pasta is a basic combination of flour and water but in reality, it is much more than that. Pasta and pasta making are deeply rooted in history, tradition and regionality and the recipes and techniques to make pasta vary from city to city, town to town, family to family.
Drawing on the traditions and techniques of his ancestors, Chef Alessandro draws on family recipes, handed down through the generations, to bring you dishes that reflect the regionality and diversity of Italy. Each and every one of their pasta shapes is handmade daily using a variety of semolina and ‘00’ flours combined with whole egg, egg yolks and water or a varying combination of these ingredients depending on the required texture, bite and intended use of the pasta, providing a different eating experience with every dish.

The 150-seat restaurant, residing at the ground floor of four-star hotel Ramada by Wyndham Singapore at Zhongshan Park since December 2018, is the hotel’s mainstay dining concept. This marks New Ubin Group’s first hotel restaurant, and is the second outlet the Group has opened in 2018. Earlier in February 2018, the Group opened its first upscale restaurant in the heart of the city, within the icnoic CHIJMES cluster. Prior to this, New Ubin existed as a single tze char eatery in Hillview Avenue—where it continues to reside—with previous incarnations in the rustic Sin Ming Industrial Estate, Sixth Avenue along Bukit Timah Road, Marina Country Club and Clementi.
Both openings put the family-run business on an exciting growth trajectory as it sets out to create a ‘Truly Singaporean’ tze char experience that can hold its own in any context, under the second generation leadership of chef and chief executive officer Alexander Pang, alongside founder and chief operating officer Pang Seng Meng, and the Pang family.
A joint partnership between New Ubin and HH Properties Pte Ltd, New Ubin Zhongshan Park will be jointly managed and overseen by Alexander and the hotel’s senior management, alongside, a “New Ubin taskforce” comprising of chefs and service staff from the original Hillview eatery. This is done to ensure that the motivation remains the same across all three existing New Ubin outlets – to bring a ‘Truly Singaporean’ experience that’s rooted in a confluence of hearty and innovative tze char, fresh produce and kampong-style hospitality.

Located at Alexandra Terrace, Brass Lion Distillery is Singapore’s first standalone micro-distillery specialising in producing high-quality small-batch craft spirits. In addition to being a distillery, it is also home to a tasting room, retail store and herb garden.
The brand debuts with the Brass Lion Gin — a tropical and distinctly Singaporean gin that evokes the island’s sense of place. This New World-style gin draws inspiration from the region’s centuries-old spice trade, which brought a plethora of Asian herbs and spices – together with indigenous varieties – to the island.
Founder Jamie's first foray into the world of spirits started with the opening of the legendary Chupitos Shots Bar in Clarke Quay, followed by The Beast Southern Kitchen & Bourbon Bar. A love of gin and experimentation, combined with the lack of local Singaporean spirits, led her on a journey to master the art and science of distillation under Master Distillers all over the world.
Embark on a tour of Brass Lion Distillery's entire space where you'll learn about the distilling process, how Brass Lion came about and the inception of the Singapore Dry Gin. Please visit this link to sign up for the tour.

Inspired by the craft beer and fresh seafood culture of San Diego, Draft & Craft is a unique restaurant-bar concept that serves authentic Southern Californian comfort food and specializes in craft beer, unique cocktails and artisanal cheeses.
Draft & Craft was conceptualized and founded by a couple that moved here from San Diego, who wanted to bring the freshness and easiness of Baja-influenced So-Cal dining to Singapore. The essence of So-Cal dining is fresh ingredients and is usually accompanied with a craft beer or cocktail in a casual, breezy setting. “Draft” refers to the draft gourmet beers on tap, and “Craft” refers to the craft food, cocktails and artisanal cheeses offered.
Draft & Craft serves up “Baja-style” Mexican food, which is a popular staple in Southern California because of its emphasis on fresh produce and seafood with it being typically lighter on the stomach when compared to traditional Mexican fare. Their food is mostly made from scratch, with a few components carefully sourced and selected by their chef. Highlights of the menu include epicurean versions of grilled cheese sandwiches and tacos such as the Baja Fish which consists of beer-battered and fried fish fillet, pico de gallo, fresh shredded cabbage and homemade white sauce enveloped in a warm and soft flour tortilla. In addition, Draft & Craft hopes to introduce the concept of beer and cheese pairings. The effervescence and varying flavors of different beers serves to complement a wide selection of cheeses as they bring out the subtle notes in one another. The gourmet cheese-tasting platter, as well as individual cheese wedges offered on the menu as supplemental beer pairings, were handpicked by their cheese consultant, who owns several cheese bars in Portland, Oregon.
Driven by his passion in craft beer, their beers are lovingly curated by the owner who is a beer connoisseur and home-brewer himself. Some of the offerings on tap include Stone IPA, Rogue Dead Guy Ale, Prairie Saison, and Anderson Valley Summer Solstice. The bottled beer list is constantly expanding and includes a good selection of IPAs, Trappist ales, stouts, porters and ciders.
For wine lovers, they have a selection of white and red wines carefully selected from a small and vibrant wine supplier. The wines offered are made from carefully tended vines, with minimal intervention in the cellar that is looked after by dedicated wine growers. The results are apparent- balanced, delicious and interesting wines which pair well with food. Cocktail drinkers can also choose from the craft cocktail menu that was specially concocted by the owner. The menu places a strong emphasis on fresh ingredients, such as “A Summer’s Day” which consists of champagne, elderflower liquor, and fresh cucumber honey water made from scratch daily.
Housed in a 1,000 square foot venue on the bustling Circular Road, in the heart of the Central Business District, Draft & Craft boasts an intimate setting with a capacity of 80 beer-loving patrons. Over at Draft & Craft, they hold the belief that the devil is in the details and they spare no effort in creating a great experience for you.

Delvaux, the oldest fine leather luxury goods house is set to open its first boutique in Singapore at Scotts Square.
Established in Brussels in 1829, the house has always enjoyed exceptional prestige and trust of connoisseurs, most notably the royal family of Belgium, holding the esteemed title of "royal warrant holder of the court of Belgium". Steeped in the spirit of Belgian surrealism, Delvaux's witty approach to all of its creations ensures each design carries a strikingly unconventional take on luxury.
Only the finest skins from the best tanneries in France and Italy are used for Delvaux’s products which are crafted by hand in their own workshops in Belgium and France. Architectural lines, daring proportions and innovative shapes are and have always been, key components of the house’s vocabulary.
Among its archives of more than 3,000 designs, Delvaux’s most iconic creations are the signature handbags known as «Le Brillant» (1958), «Le Tempête» (1967), «Le Pin» (1972) and «Le Madame» (1977).
The innovative boutique concept is created exclusively for Delvaux by Luxembourg-based artists, Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil, who participated in the Venice Biennale in 2011. They conceived elegant sculptural interiors for the boutiques, inspired by Flemish architecture and a boudoir-like aesthetic. Executed by the Italian firm, Vudafieri Saverino and Partners, a leader in luxury retail design and architecture, this original concept has recently been extended to Tokyo, Paris and London.
Just as in the case for Gessi Milano, Gessi has long sought for a very special location to open an inspirational place where the Gessi's world beauty, sophistication, wellness, creativity in designing the most intimate spaces of home dwelling could be represented. Charm, uniqueness, splendor, were the qualities Gessi was looking for, in establishing its house in Singapore.
The place is as unique as one of the very few remaining Victorian mansions in the city and even more one of a kind as it sits in the very heart of the city. Perfectly preserved, it dates back to the XIX century and it is a much protected conservation house.
The project involved the restoration of a two-storey Victorian building that sits on land which was once a nutmeg estate owned by Dr. Thomas Oxley, back in the Colonial era.
They called it Casa Gessi, the Gessi home, first because home interiors is what they propose. Indeed the Casa Gessi is the home to the different ideas and concepts Gessi developed for the home, from the minimalistic Rettangolo home concept, to the soothing roundness of the Ovale Home, to the organic enveloping Goccia and iSpa home, the charming Eleganza home, the artsy, verdant and architectural Cono home concept and so on.
