Qantas has officially opened its newest First Lounge, a luxury space spread over 1,000 sqm at Singapore’s Changi Airport.
The new First Lounge will operate in tandem alongside the airline’s existing International Business Lounge, providing capacity for 240 customers and a bespoke offering for Qantas’ First Class passengers and top tier frequent flyers.
The new build was designed by Australian designer David Caon in collaboration with Kelvin Ho of architecture and design firm Akin Atelie and features a number of Singaporean influences across the look and feel of the lounge as well as the food and beverage offering.
Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the opening of the new lounge is a reflection of the airline’s extensive premium investment in the region.
“Since our A380 flights have returned to Singapore, we’ve seen an increase in demand for premium travel which has also translated to an increase in the number of travellers enjoying our lounge hospitality.
“This is our fourth Qantas First Lounge, and each time we build an entire new lounge facility from scratch, we speak to our frequent flyers to get a better understanding of how customers like to spend their time in the lounge and tailor it accordingly. Our customers told us their key priorities when travelling through or from Singapore is space to relax and do some last-minute work, a quick shower, and a meal before departure so they can maximise their sleep onboard.”
An open kitchen will serve up a Rockpool a la carte seasonal menu designed with Singapore’s vibrant dining culture in mind.
The lounge also features a cocktail bar with lounge seating, serving French champagne, seasonal spritzes, unique cocktails inspired by Singapore, like a Calamansi Mojito – made from the local Calamansi fruit, Singaporean and Australian beer – and a variety of Australian wine. View Singapore First Lounge Menu here.
Non-alcoholic healthy beverages such as kefir and kombucha, barley water and a Rockpool ‘House Lemonade’ are available, along with all day barista service with Vittoria coffee and a selection of savoury bar snacks and fruit.
Wellness continues to be a major inspiration and the new Qantas First Lounge brings the outside in. Live greenery features throughout the lounge to soften the space and bolster the atmosphere, while the use of natural materials and colour palettes is designed to help relax customers.
A unique faux ‘skylight’ in the shower suites and lounge area will replicate natural daylight and help adjust the body clock as customers transition through multiple time zones.
Business travellers have the choice to work in an open, communal setting or individual lounge chairs with high dividers. USB and charging ports are located throughout the lounge, with wireless printing, Wi-Fi and TV screens for customers to stay charged and connected.
The new premium space is Qantas’ fourth First Lounge across its global network, joining Sydney, Melbourne, and Los Angeles. The opening is part of the multi-million-dollar investment for customers on its Singapore services and complements the expanded Qantas International Business lounge at Changi, which combined now offers seating for more than 800 customers.

Baba Chews Bar and Eatery is an all-day dining restaurant in Katong serving modern and traditional cuisine from Straits of Malacca.
Baba Chews is a restaurant inspired by their neighbourhood. The name ‘Baba Chews’ takes inspiration from Chew Joo Chiat, a wealthy Chinese landowner known as the ‘King of Katong’ who in 1917 allowed the use of a road through his land for public, which is the Joo Chiat Road we know today. Various other roads and landmarks in the vicinity were also named after him, such as this very building, which was formerly the Joo Chiat Police Station (1928 – 1987).
Paying homage to this unique culture, they have put together a menu of traditional and modern cuisines from places that have influenced Peranakan cooking.

Chong Wen Ge brings the term "cafe" into new heights - injecting the richness of surrounding heritage into a gastronomic experience.
The founders of Chong Wen Ge cafe are made up of a group of middle age "uncles"*- who, even though established in their own profession, feel inclined to start Chong Wen Ge Cafe - in efforts to reach out to the younger generation and increase the awareness of Singapore's own cultural roots. Thus, instead of allowing the cafe to be subjected to the cookie-cutter formula of serving eggs Benedict and waffles - the founders were strict in ensuring that all decisions right down to the smallest detail, were made with the heritage and culture in mind.
Entering through the Chong Boon Gate, you will be greeted by the authentic Peranakan tiled flooring, all preserved in its original splendor. In the background, there is the soothing tinkling of piano songs that amalgamates perfectly with the surrounding environment to bring respite and retreat to those who seek escape from their everyday life.
As you settle in, make yourself at home, take a moment to enjoy the honest heritage food, and appreciate all that with the beautiful backdrop of the intricately decorated Chong Wen Pagoda. Everything at Chong Wen Ge cafe, from the surrounding ambience and view; down to the food we serve, is calibrated to bring one's cafe experience to a whole new level.

The food at Paper Crane is not so much defined by a cuisine but more by an intuitive and fun approach to food. Like the people behind this cosy bistro along Waterloo Street, the food is unpretentious, honest and hearty.
They cook the food we love to eat. Think hearty, robust flavours that take time to coax, homemade anything and unpretentious fare.
The menu is kept concise but there are always new offerings because they like to keep things fun for them, and interesting for their customers. Prices are affordable, with all-day deals.
However, regardless of the offering, it always reflects their obsession with taking their time to tease out flavours and making as much as they can from scratch.

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.
