Singapore's go-to rendezvous, Fish Pool at The NCO Club is a glamorous raw bar steeped in occasion, dedicated to hosting the uppermost echelons of society - well-versed in the art of food, drink and festivity.
Fish Pool in an esteemed collaboration with Louis Roederer, is an electrifying champagne, caviar and oyster bar with a diving pool centerpiece for the city’s most glamorous rendezvous and events. A leisure venue, whet your palettes with captivating festive and aquatic performances to turn the energy up a notch against a view to remember.
The NCO Club (known previously as the NAAFI Britannia Club) served as a vital social amenity for non-commissioned officers and their families since 1952. Gazetted alongside Blocks 1, 9 and 14 of the Beach Road Camp for conservation by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), it was one of the first modern architectural heritage buildings to be conserved in Singapore.
The NCO Club is a building that has been synonymous with the spirit of patriotism and nascent nationalism in Singapore bearing great historical, social and political significance as a place where generations of military servicemen congregated and interacted in an egalitarian, multi- ethnic setting. This was a significant milestone in Singapore’s colonial history.
Together, the four conservation buildings form a unique enclave that embodies different eras in Singapore’s history, expressed through their varied architecture. Like the conserved pre-war Tiong Bahru estate, Blocks 1, 9 and 14 reflect early Modernism with inflections of the Art Deco style. On the other hand, the NCO Club is characteristic of the more austere post-war Modernism and is one of the rare intact examples of modernist architectural heritage in Singapore. They are also representative of a milestone in Singapore’s conservation history where the buildings are neither part of a historic shop house district, nor individual monuments, but a cluster of historically and functionally-related institutional buildings.

The revamp of the restaurant is a contemporary interpretation of art nouveau woodwork.

Gunther’s food is down-to-earth – like the man himself – yet deftly executed to perfection with elegance and finesse. His gift lies in his ability to re-interpret classic dishes and flavours, breathing new life into them in terms of both taste and presentation. He devises unusual flavour combinations with delicate sensitivity, resulting in dishes that are pleasurable to eat, yet a novel to experience. Equally central to his culinary distinction is his passionate belief in plating each dish to heighten its visual appeal. The chef frames each of his dishes with an artist’s eye and constantly aims to fashion gastronomic works of art that pleases both eye and palate.
