Though initially intended to be boots for workers, postmen, and policemen. the design’s aesthetic appeal has gained popularity amongst people who have their own individual style but share a united spirit – authentic characters who stand for something. People who possess a proud sense of self- expression. People who are different.
Today, Dr Martens have outlets across the globe, expanding out of Europe to Asian countries such as Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand.

What are you waiting for, guys and dolls? Capitol Milk Bar beckons!
They treasure special memories here at Capitol Milk Bar, that’s why they have dedicated many of their burgers to some key people from the history of the Capitol Theatre.
Like silent screen legend Charlie Chapman and his brother Sydney who visited with Capitol Theatre’s Joe and Julius S. Fisher in 1932. Then there’s Douglas Fairbanks, one of the first movie stars to visit Singapore. During his 1935 visit he came to The Capitol to watch the film David Copperfield (1935) with Lady Sylvia Ashley.
Even Hollywood’s most irresistible woman Ava Gardner made an appearance here in 1954. She was in town to promote her new film, The Barefoot Contessa and attended a private dinner right here at the Capitol hosted by the Shaw Brothers who had taken over a damaged and neglected theatre after WW11. They repaired and restored her to former glory, also adding the now iconic neon sign. And let’s not forget that fun little fellow who entertained young Singaporeans with weekly matinee cartoons every Saturday from 1933 – Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse.
Many have fond memories of the popular Magnolia Snack Bar. Opening first as the ‘Creameries Milk Bar’ in the Capitol Building in the 1940s, they served ice creams, milkshakes and cakes. It was a hit with Singaporeans both young and old for social gatherings and post-movie bites. Magnolia Snack Bar closed in the late 1980’s but we have brought back the sweetness…
Strike Me Pink was a 1936 American musical comedy starring Ethel Merman – the undisputed First Lady of the musical comedy stage. We named our take on the local classic chendol dessert “Singapore Dash” a reference to Douglas Fairbanks and his “high-speed visits” to Singapore. And, The Jungle Book as a dedication to author Rudyard Kipling who made many trips to Singapore. Imagine being in the theatre in 1942 to watch the classic on the big screen after they turned it into Technicolor action-adventure film!

Ginza Rokukakutei's first overseas venture outside Japan is now open at Odeon Towers.
Rokukakutei in Osaka has been a one-Michelin-starred specialty restaurant since year 2009. Then it opened a 2nd outlet in Ginza, Tokyo.
The concept of the restaurant is serving Kushiage (deep fried skewers) and wine pairing with selected luxury wines like their outlets at Ginza and Azabujuban in Tokyo. Think omakase style dining but with deep fried skewers.
District6, Singapore’s newest co-working space, has opened its doors.
Housed on the second floor of Odeon Towers, the chic and minimalist space is designed to flood the space with natural light in the day. The generous 10,000 square feet space is outfitted with comforting furnishings and a pleasing palette of wood and white – drawing from the belief that the art of a decluttered space leads to a decluttered mind. Furthermore, the founders have left it up to the discretion of its tenants to decorate their own office as they see fit such that it would feel more like their very own space.
The promising community that the District6 team have built so far include people who create and innovate the built environment like real estate tech and smart living start-up IglooHome and one of the most significant research and education non-profits in the real estate industry - Urban Land Institute.
The team at DISTRICT6 will host events relevant to the co-working community that inspire and inform, above the usual networking opportunities. Those include, the first real estate tech Hackathon in Singapore hosted in collaboration with IglooHome, keynote speeches and networking hosted by Urban Land Institute, and fundraisers for visionary hotel schools in Myanmar.
The unassuming but elegantly designed space at District6 is utilised to provide a range of flexi desks, dedicated desks, private studios (for teams of 2 to 4), private offices (for larger companies with 5 to 20 people); and four unique meeting rooms.
Amenities and facilities include small meetings rooms, dedicated phone booths, a large boardroom, and an event space that holds up to 100 people, complete with 8-metre high ceiling with a projectable wall. The communal ‘living room’ also houses specialty Coffee bar from Kyoto, Kurasu. All beans are sourced by a specialty roaster around Japan to offer the finest selection of brews to keep the team going throughout the day – all complimentary to members of course.
