Lendlease Global Commercial REIT (LREIT) has won the joint tender by the Singapore Land Authority, Singapore Tourism Board and Urban Redevelopment Authority to redevelop the 48,200 square feet car park at Grange Road into a new multi-functional event space.
Set to be operational in the second quarter of 2022, the concept, designed by DP Architects, aims to offer a first-of-its-kind lifestyle experience along Orchard Road, with multiple dedicated event spaces, an independent cinema, hawker stalls serving local delights and a food and beverage attraction. This will provide a rich array of events and experiences for locals and tourists, especially the millennials.
LREIT is collaborating with Live Nation, the world’s leading live entertainment company, to create an exciting calendar of concerts, film and events ensuring that the site is active all year round.
LREIT will also collaborate with The Projector, Singapore’s much-loved independent cinema operator, and Museum of Food. In support of the government’s push for Singapore’s hawker culture to be recognised by UNESCO, Museum of Food aims to launch an experiential attraction where locals and tourists can immerse themselves in the history, flavours and creativity of local cuisine, curating concepts that generate high imaginative experiences with instagrammable moments.
Unleash your inner superstar at BandKara by Bistro8 where you can sing karaoke with live band members, jamming your heart out at every moment!
BandKara is an authentic Japanese live band karaoke restaurant and bar concept from Tokyo. It is a popular activity in Japan that sees individuals get the opportunity to sing popular karaoke songs in front of an audience accompanied by a live band. With over 250,000 songs, everyone will be able to have a chance to stand on the stage and sing to their hearts’ content!
The live band is well equipped to play any song from any genre regardless of language, and they are there to enhance your experience on stage. Customers can go on to play the instruments or bring their own if they’d like to! They can even perform without the karaoke background music to further build up the adrenaline of performing on stage, leaving them wanting to come back for more. BandKara is similar to a collaborative space where music enthusiasts come together to enjoy playing music, performing and simply have fun.
Mr. Nobuhiro Genmei, Chief Operations Officer of Koshidaka Singapore (company which owns Bistro8), believes that everyone can have a good time at BandKara, by reliving their dreams as a superstar, or just by chilling and enjoying the live performances for those not performing.
With that in mind, BandKara invited professional band members from all over Japan with different musical backgrounds to perform and allow the confident singer inside to be unleashed.
For shyer guests who may not want to sing, chill and indulge in BandKara’s delicious menu; everyone can have a good time at BandKara!
BandKara by Bistro8 is also available for booking for private events, birthday celebrations, corporate functions; simply email email@example.com for more information.
Amazing Castle has opened their first ever overseas branch at Cineleisure Orchard. The air-conditioned indoor playspace has 9 different stations combining traditional arcade games and classic playground mechanics with a modern technological twist. Enjoy this new playground for all ages.
Amazing Castle is a new interactive entertainment concept. Short, sharp and sweet, it is designed to challenge both your skill and intellect. It is technology enabled but unabashedly analogue. Designed to be wickedly fun for groups of up to 3 people - they mix and match a route from 9 different challenges to bring your fun to the next level.
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
Tenkaichi Japanese BBQ & Shabu Shabu at the newly-revamped Cineleisure promises both authenticity and affordability for a gourmet Japanese Yakiniku experience. Hungry shoppers can expect a premium buffet at just S$59.90, which includes a free flow of Tenkaichi’s signature grilled Wagyu Beef that are hand sliced and freshly served to order.
Alternatively, for a limited time only, customers can opt for its value-for-money and irresistible S$10 Donburi sets, ranging from Chirashi Don, Wagyu Beef Yakiniku Don, Hotate Mentai Mayo Don and Cheesy Chicken Teriyaki Don.
Located just below the Benjamin Barker (BB) store @ Cineleisure, Benjamin Barker Café is designed to integrate the lifestyle concept of BB as its food-loving, coffee-drinking (and equally well-dressed) other half of the prolific local menswear label.
Setting to be the brand's Asian debut combining Fashion and F&B, the 60-seater café in this 3,000 sq ft two-storey establishment is all about the gastronomic good things in life — classic comfort fare, all-day breakfast and weekend brunches.
The café mimics the stylish BB-inspired interiors with its rich, navy blue colour palette, white marble-top counters, sleek timber furniture, and an eye-catching neon sign. Completed with calming lighting and minimalist decor, it is designed as a space for like-minded creatives and individuals to meet, exchange cultures, ideas and experiences over a mean cup of espresso and a hearty brunch selection. Testament to the ethos of BB, personnel are fitted out in crisp white shirts and knit ties designed by BB's in-house designers, paired with classic denim jeans and leather-strapped aprons.
With one half of the café’s founders spending time in his youth as a barista and manager in a Melbourne café, and the other with a coveted apprenticeship under one of Italy’s greatest pizza masters in Naples, it comes as no surprise that Benjamin Barker Café’s signatures include coffee and pizzas, such as White Cold Brew and Laksa Pizza. As a nod to the brand’s dedication of offering high quality fare, Benjamin Barker Café uses premium Gryphon tea, Matchaya tea blend from Kyoto and robust Papa Palheta coffee beans. The menu also features other delectable offerings of al dente pastas, satisfying mains, burgers, brunch signatures such as the BB Brunch, Crab Cake Benedict and a lip-smacking range of homemade desserts, in particular the indulgent waffles.
