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.

The Monarchy Cocktail Bar & Ultra Lounge at 56 / 58 Tras Street offer a long-awaited, permanent and spiritual home for the wildly popular Monarchy nights that were acclaimed for playing host to both Royalty and celebrities alike on the rooftop of OUE Bayfront. The Monarchy is the brainchild of nightlife veterans, Robbie Hoyes-Cock, the CEO & Founder of the world's most glamourous Formula 1 weekend after-parties The Podium Lounge; and Steve Yallop, former Executive Director of Pangaea at Marina Bay Sands, who have been organising star-studded high society club nights in Singapore since 2005.
Set in a heritage shophouse spread over 3,600 square feet in the heart of the CBD, this quintessentially British cocktail bar exudes understated luxury and bears a distinctly regal theme, celebrating the Royal Houses of Normandy to Lancaster and Tudors to the Windsors.
Helmed by General Manager Rob Scott, former Group Beverage Director of Burnt Ends, Meatsmith & Rogue Trader, The Monarchy offers a carefully curated menu of timeless cocktails through the ages, and will introduce a new cocktail list quarterly, enabling guests to take multiple journeys through the history of Great Britain's most popular tastes and tipples of the day.
The opening cocktail list “Cool Britannia” is named in celebration of the modern, outward-facing Britain of the 1990s and the period of increased pride in the giddy cultural fantasia of the United Kingdom – the name itself a pun on the title of one of Britain's most patriotic songs, ''Rule Brittania''.
In a tip of the hat to Britain’s constitutional monarchy, guests enter the premises through a front door that is identical to the iconic home of the British Prime Minister, 10 Downing Street.
On weekends and eve of public holidays from 10pm, as the night builds up and the lights go down, the music starts pulsing and The Monarchy’s dazzling ultra lounge space comes alive as the entire venue transforms into one club. A hidden door at the end of the 8 metre long cocktail bar swings open to reveal a dark and intimate boudoir lined with leather Chesterfields and dancing platforms, where guests can party with the best house music DJs and live celebrity acts.
The 7 VIP tables named after British icons: Sir Winston Churchill, Dame Helen Mirren, Audrey Heburn, Amy Winehouse, George Michael, John Lennon and Hugh Grant; provide a home-away-from-home for those who crave a more sophisticated and private, late-night experience.
The Monarchy has brought together what is possibly the best bar team in Singapore, bringing unprecedented experience from many of the island's most acclaimed venues: 28 HongKong St, Employees Only, 1880, Lulu's, Pangaea and The Cufflink Club to name a few.
The Royal Jesters look forward to entertaining you at The Monarchy soon. God Save The Queen!
After nearly eight years at Kampong Bugis Road, Kilo Kitchen has moved out of its original home for a new chapter at 97 Duxton Road. This move once again reunites Kilo Kitchen with sister property Kilo Lounge, just steps away at 21 Tanjong Pagar Road. With both venues a short stroll apart, Kilo can once again offer guests the ideal night out—great modern comfort food, fresh cocktails and a vibrant after hours experience—set against the backdrop of Chinatown’s bustling Tanjong Pagar district.
Kilo Kitchen’s menu takes inspiration from different cuisines around the world and draws on the heritage of co-founders Joshua Adjodha, Javier Perez and Sharon Lee, as well as returning executive chef Manel Valero. Since departing Kilo in May 2016, Manel went on a culinary sabbatical across Europe and staged at some of the region’s top Michelin-starred restaurants including Relæ, Maaemo and Geranium. He returns to helm the new Kilo Kitchen, where he brings with him a renewed perspective on Kilo’s brand of modern comfort food. Big, bold flavours can be found on nearly every plate, with dishes favouring the tastes and cooking techniques of Latin America and Asia.
A highlight of the new Kilo Kitchen is its open-format natural flame kitchen with a wood-fired grill – a style of cooking that chef Manel has honed throughout his culinary career. The kitchen is the centre of the action, and allows guests to observe the kitchen team at work. The majority of cooked dishes are prepared on the wood-fired grill, and this technique also adds depth of flavour and a touch of char to Kilo’s classics. Three types of wood are used to achieve the optimal fire – apple, cherry and jarrah. Apple and cherry woods impart a delicious aroma and burn slowly, while bush jarrah is an old Western Australian favourite hard wood for barbecues and wood-fired ovens that burns clean to leave very little ash behind.
Adjacent to the open kitchen is an impressive Turkish marble and brass bar that extends across the width of the space. Here, a high energy bar team led by general manager Luca Colonna delivers a well-rounded beverage programme of signature cocktails, artisanal sakes, craft spirits, and over 30 wines sourced from South Africa to Argentina and beyond – perfect for any time of the evening.
The 3,000 sq ft eating and drinking destination sits on a prime spot on the intersection of Duxton Hill and Duxton Road – the latest addition to the burgeoning Duxton community of cultural, creative, lifestyle and dining offerings. Responsible for the design of the new Kilo Kitchen is Singapore and Jakarta-based Studio Dinding, whose designers have worked on projects for noted firms Jaya and Distillery.

If one of the purposes in life is to live it, enjoy it, and seize the moments that you find particularly pleasing, what greater pleasure to drink such wines among the company of friends.

Singapore is getting a new Qantas first class lounge!
Qantas has announced a multi-million dollar investment in a new First Lounge and an expansion of the airline’s existing Business Lounge at Singapore Changi Airport.
With development due to start in April 2019, the Singapore First Lounge will offer seating for 240 customers, a luxurious design and premium a la carte dining with Asian-inspired menus.
The existing Business Lounge, which opened in 2013, will also be expanded. Combined, the First and Business Lounges will offer seating for more than 800 customers.
Qantas will work with Chef Neil Perry and Industrial Designer David Caon in collaboration with Akin Atelier, to create a relaxing, high quality environment for passengers to either start their international journey or transit through Singapore. The design will embody a clear focus on sustainability with choices in materials, lighting interior, layouts and amenities all reflecting the highest local and international design techniques.

Qantas operates over 50 return services in to and out of Changi Airport each week, making it one of the largest foreign airlines to operate out of the Singapore airport. From Singapore, Jetstar Group operates 298 weekly return flights to 26 destinations.
In addition to Qantas’ investment in Singapore, the airline recently announced it will upgrade its lounges in Tokyo, Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane, Hobart and Tamworth in regional Australia. A new Melbourne Domestic lounge precinct is due to open at the end of October.

Boat Quay’s newest addition isn’t the run-of-the-mill pub or sports bar. Skinny’s Lounge is a place to get solid cocktails that don’t break the bank; a venue for showing off those pipes without stepping into a regular KTV; and a post-party haven for kicking back with a bucket of beers and some comforting snacks before meandering home. Dreamed up by bartender Nick Haas, who worked alongside Joel Fraser and Christian Hartmann at The Cufflink Club and Vasco, Skinny’s embodies his desire for a refuge for those in search of great drinks in a fun and fuss-free environment.

For under $20, solid libations catering to myriad tastes are made by talented bartenders including Leo Chue, formerly of 28 HongKong Street. The menu’s Fast and Cheap options are geared towards those who want something quick. It has cocktails like the Paloma, a citrusy tequila-based drink topped off with soda, and the Americano, a balanced Campari and sweet vermouth cocktail.
There is also a wider range of classic creations with an option to Make It Nice, where cocktails are made with artisanal spirits at an additional $3. This includes the Caiprioska shaken with vodka, fresh lime juice and cane sugar, as well as the Daiquiri No. 1 (El Floridita Style), a Havana-style ice-blended drink with Cuban rum, Maraschino liqueur and fresh lime. Other refreshing cocktails include the Gin Basil Smash, a shaken drink with London dry gin, fresh basil and muddled lemon, as well as the citrusy El Diablo made with tequila and ginger beer, topped with a crème de cassis float. For those who prefer something fresh yet smoky, the menu also offers the Pencillin, shaken with blended Scotch whiskey, zingy ginger and an Islay mist.

If beer is more your speed, the bar also has a list of commercial and craft American beers from the likes of Miller Genuine Draft and Brooklyn Lager to hoppy Kona Brewing Company bottles.

An ode to the classic American neighbourhood bar, Skinny’s Lounge is a no-holds-barred space a stone’s throw away from the thick of the Boat Quay action. In the city’s packed nightlife scene, it is an oasis for good company, unpretentious drinks, and a young and dynamic team of individuals who have cut their teeth at some of the city’s finest bars.

The Bar & Billiard Room at Raffles Hotel marks a new era with its return to a storied and sophisticated, yet relaxed bar and lounge specialising in whisky, original and imaginative cocktails, craft beers and high quality cigars.
Noted as the oldest existing bar in its original location in Singapore, the Bar & Billiard Room will now present up to 400 curated whiskies alongside an entirely new cocktail list and bar menu.
With a beautiful room and outdoor covered terraces, the unique and historic setting at Bar & Billiard Room naturally lends itself to the new evolution. The Bar & Billiard Room will also serve as an everyday meeting place as well as for special occasions.
Christoph B. Nyfeler shares his 16 years of whisky experience as Raffles Singapore’s Resident Whisky Expert. Of the 400 hand selected whiskies, many are limited editions and directly imported for the bar. The whisky list boasts a strong Scottish presence with a good selection of American bourbons and Japanese whiskies rounding off the collection.
To add special interest, Christoph will host whisky events such as whisky appreciation masterclasses and whisky dinners regularly. He can also create exclusive whisky pairing menus for groups and corporate events of up to 20 people. You can share your individual taste preferences with Christoph who will then customise a dinner menu where courses are paired with different types of single malt whiskies.
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.
