Alluding to the state of emptiness, Almost Famous at Chijmes was conceived to be a space to provide clarity to the experience. Adding nothing to influence and taking nothing away to distract from the emphasis of the subjects within the space. They wanted to push the boundaries of what defines how a craft beer bar should be.
Conceptualised with minimalism in mind, Almost Famous was designed to be an environment devoid of unnecessary aesthetics. Every detail from the design of furniture, tableware, menu board, and even the coasters was selected with careful restraint, to achieve simplicity in form and function. A concept that was further enhanced by the choice of basic shapes and monochromatic palettes in the overall aesthetics of the interiors.
They wanted this objectivity to be translated into nothing short of a memorable experience with the emphasis on the people, the food and the beers.
Almost Famous offer a selection of 16 beers on tap from popular breweries locally and beyond. Their curation of beers aims to introduce a wider selection of session-able craft beers as a gateway for regular beer drinkers to appreciate specialty beers and the unique characteristics of beers from small-batch breweries. Complemented by a smaller selection of premium craft beers with more robust flavours, from rich stouts, hoppy IPAs to seasonal limited edition brews.
Their rotational taps include beers from some of these craft breweries:
Brewlander & Co. (Singapore)
Pasteur Street Brewing Company (Vietnam)
Young Master Brewery å°çºå¤é å» (Hong Kong)
Pirate Life Brewing (Australia)
Stone & Wood Brewing Co. (Australia)
Heretic Brewing Company (USA)
Pilsner Urquell (Czech Republic)

Located in the heart of action at Robertson Quay, Bugis @ Studio M delivers a fun experience with friends over drinks and genuine local Asian delicacies inspired by the heyday of Bugis Street.
Once described as the Montmartre of Singapore, Bugis Street top tourist destination during the 1950s to 1980s.

Bugis @ Studio M goes all out for a design style that showcases the best of old Singapore-- wine barrel tables, rickshaws seats, bicycle wheels -- lit up by the surrounding skyline. With the oriental flowers and flamboyant ferns under the stars, one can choose to sit on the penny-farthings, with the dedicated bartender or unwind with friends at the solid wood barrels in a communal setting. The 32-seat Bugis @ Studio M lights up the adjacent green space with a nostalgic vibe, great tunes and friendly, laid-back service.
Craft beers available include those from local Singapore microbreweries like Archipelago draft, Ki Siao Brown Ale, SG Blonde Ale, Sibei Ho Witbier, Tiger and Tok Gong America IPA (S$10++ each), as well as international labels (S$12++ each) like the Australian Bridge Road Robust Porter, French La Chouette, ACME Pale Ale and North Coast Stellar from California, Belgian St. Bernardus Witbier, and Royal Jamaican Alcoholic Ginger Beer. A cocktail list includes the Little Red Dot’s world-famous Singapore Sling (S$16++).

Drawing inspiration from the ancient concept of Kama which refers to the energy, desire and passion for life and the pursuit of the pleasure of the senses and aestheticism; Kama British Indian Company Kitchen & Bar is set to explode into the vibrant F&B scene with a buzz equal to its name. With over 20 years of experience in the F&B industry backing it, KAMA is forging ahead to wow the fussy local crowd with a brand new concept that promises to tantalise, reward and engage. The vibrant and dynamic F&B scene in Singapore will welcome an exciting new concept never perfected before until now. Come May 2016, an authentic yet contemporary British Indian Kitchen & Bar will be born - KAMA British Indian Company Kitchen & Bar.
Located strategically along the North Canal Road, a stone’s throw away from the heart of the business district, cash-rich but time-poor executives can nestle and revel in this new gem in the F&B scene.
It was here that our forefathers carved out a living and helped shape the foundation of modern Singapore. It was also here that our British colonial governors paved the way socially and culturally, perfecting the art of working and playing hard. In effect, our English predecessors showed us how to maintain a good work-life balance even before the phrase was invented.
KAMA passionately leverages off our rich historical foundation and expertly blends it with a superior understanding of the highest standards of culinary excellence and execution. Tapping into a wealth of experience both in the kitchen and the floor, KAMA’s team will surprise even the most discerning patron with its superb level of service and food quality.
Occupying a space that boasts of 100 years of history is slightly daunting but a very welcome challenge for KAMA’s team. Drawing inspiration from the original owners who started a humble bird’s nest trading business into a globally leading brand, KAMA hopes to emulate its predecessor’s vision, passion and drive.
Spanning a total of 2,500 square feet of historically-fuelled space, the interior design is soaked with colonial European, West Indies and Eastern European influences – an eclectic mix that blends perfectly together through the vision of the design team headed by Alessandro Lo Giudice who has led and managed Architectural and Interior Design firms in Italy and Singapore in the Residential and Hospitality sector and in the recent years was involved in the interiors of prestigious projects in Asia, China and Africa. As partner and designer of a Boutique Design Firm whose spirit is to keep things focused and discerning, he has inspired the concept of recent successful restaurants and F&B outlets in Singapore.
Guests can expect to enjoy privately intimate yet vibrant experiences at KAMA where they can either choose to mingle with familiar faces or conduct discreet meetings at their discretion – KAMA’s discerning and professional team provide the appropriate level of service and approach.
The second floor space is where the customer experience evolves into a more loungy and relaxed ambience. Replete with a tasteful blend of European design with Eastern motifs, the space is perfect for corporate networking and social gatherings. Guests can always rely on KAMA to be the place where they can even visit on their own and know they will meet like-minded people and enjoy not only great food, drinks and service but also immaculate company.
Eschewing the typical notion of Indian cuisine where the heavy, carbo-filled and rich curried offerings are the norm, KAMA’s menu will borrow the best of West and East in order to pamper our guests with just the right amount of every gastronomic element to enhance their experience.
The spice level is easily controlled as all dishes and curries are cooked ala minute.
Imagine tapas style bites that delights the palate and fills the tummy just right in order to enjoy handcrafted cocktails and the finest selection of beers, wines and whiskies.
At the end of the day, KAMA is a place for discerning lunch and cocktail meetings, post-office gatherings, romantic dates, happy hour sessions amongst friends, launch events and indulgent weekend brunches that never ends.
Montana focuses on providing wholesome food, quality coffee and genuine service focusing on the customer.

Wildfire will be opening their 2nd venue in December, in 313@Somerset.
Wildfire has achieved the perfect burger patty results with our secret spiced marinade and 30-70 fat content ratio. The patties are char-grilled to prefection in the customised double-ventilated Inka oven from the UK.
At 500 degrees celsius, the extreme heat seals the juices within the beef patty and the Japanese Binchotan charcoal provides intense smoking, leaving the patty crusty on the outside and extremely flavoursome and succulent on the inside.
Wildfire is the only establishment in Singapore to use Rangers Valley Black Onyx 100% pure Black Angus Range MBS3+ (rump with bone-in) for the patties of our specialty burgers.
This limited supply Black Onyx Angus Beef is typically used for steaks by Michelin-starred restaurants around the world. The cattle have never been treated by hormones (HGPs) and are reared at a 12,000-acre feedlot that has won multiple awards including the prestigious Feedlot of the year award.

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.

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.

Nestled within the eclectic conservation area of Bussorah Street is the modern, understated chill out restaurant and bar, Pizza Fabbrica, a newcomer in Singapore’s vibrant Italian food scene that’s already making a splash.
The hub of this minimalist pizzeria is the lively open kitchen, which houses an impressive slick copper woodfired oven and from which the chefs prepare authentic Italian dishes under the helm of Executive Chef Matteo Boifava, a native Italian born and bred in the historic northern city of Cremona. Amidst the stark décor and feel of a contemporary pizza factory, Chef Matteo and his team let the food speak for itself. Highly committed to always serving the best.
Pizza Fabbrica stays true to traditional recipes while playfully reinventing them with cheeky, modern interpretations. You will find much of the condiments home-made, including marinated olives, sundried tomatoes, fig and chili jam, mostarda and pesto, to name a few. With up to 14 freshly made pizzas on offer, the pan-Italian menu is also heavily centred on artisanal produce, such as Rustichella d’Abruzzo Artisanal pasta from Italy and freshly roasted coffee beans by Dutch Colony Coffee.

You will be treated to a range of much-loved Italian pizzas such as the Magherita Di Bufala D.O.P, or the Vegetariana.
The pizzas all feature Chef Matteo’s own style of pizza base, made with dough that has been proofed for 48 hours, using the best quality of Caputo flour from Italy and topped with Fior di Latte (fresh mozzarella) air flown in from Italy. The herbivores amongst us would also be thrilled to know that Pizza Fabbrica lays claim to an exclusive vegetarian menu, courtesy of Chef Matteo’s vegetarian mother.
Executive Chef Matteo Boifava brings with him over 18 years of experience. He is a specialist of fine dining using haute-cuisine technologies. Never one to rest on his laurels, Matteo has also sharpened his culinary chops in kitchens around the world, including a stagier stint at celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal’s famed 3 Michelin-starred restaurant in London, The Fat Duck.
Chef Matteo grew up on a farm surrounded by fresh produce, provisions and typically homecooked fare, which has given him a solid foundation on the importance of cooking with fine ingredients and maintaining their fresh flavours to make the dishes come alive. Under his experience and guidance, the food at Pizza Fabbrica takes inspiration from authentic recipes passed down from the generations of women in his family.
