CapitaLand has unveiled the highly-anticipated design of One Pearl Bank perched atop the verdant Pearl’s Hill. The development comprises two gently curving 39-storey towers linked at the roof by dramatic sky bridges. The slender, curved facades create a light and airy effect, providing ample space for residents and onlookers to look out and through the towers to admire the stunning views atop the hill. Towering at 178 metres, One Pearl Bank will be the tallest residential development in the Outram-Chinatown district in Central Singapore, offering panoramic views that extend from the Central Business District to Sentosa.
Designed by multi award-winning Serie+Multiply, a joint venture between London-based Serie Architects and Singapore-based Multiply Architects, the new scheme elevates the concept of high-rise living with a total of 774 apartments. It will support more urbanites in leading their dream city lifestyles at this prime location, in line with the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s vision to develop more homes in Singapore’s Central Area. A wide selection of unit types from studio apartments to penthouses, ranging in size from approximately 430 to 2,800 sq ft, will be made available.
Adding to its allure, One Pearl Bank will feature a world-first – a series of sky allotment gardens arrayed vertically at one edge of each tower. With each tower featuring an allotment garden every four storeys and each garden housing 11 plots, One Pearl Bank will have a total of 18 sky allotment gardens with close to 200 plots where residents can grow their own herbs, fruits and vegetables. The beautifully-appointed allotment gardens not only support urban farming, they offer spaces to promote community bonding. Visible from the city centre, they make a powerful visual statement on One Pearl Bank’s biophilic design that integrates nature to enrich residents’ quality of life. These allotment gardens are further complemented by two sky terraces and two roof gardens across the two towers and a sunken planter in every balcony to maximise the greenery on the development’s facade.

Bringing you a one-of-a-kind experience, b bar is a swanky hideout at habitat by honestbee and is home to an exclusive spirits and cocktail bar that presents New Age Classics, its first of many seasonal themes. Inspired by gastronomy and culinary techniques, ingredients are sourced from around the world, available for purchase at habitat by honestbee.
Resident bar manager Anton Gornev uses modern techniques to recreate classic drinks infused with local and Asian flavours. Originally from St Petersburg, Russia, Anton brings with him a wealth of international experience having competed in competitions across the globe. Employing gastronomy techniques such as fat-washing, sous vide infusion, milk clarification, and even using a bee smoker, Anton’s inventive style adds a layer of depth to b bar’s cocktails. Apart from a change of menus, b bar’s interior decor and uniforms will be updated accordingly to bring a new take to the experience.
Sharing his inspiration behind the current theme of New Age Classics, “As a bar that’s just opening, I wanted to shine a spotlight on classic cocktails to showcase how bartending began and evolved, but with my own modern take. habitat by honestbee is an exciting playground of exotic flavours and fresh ingredients that have inspired me to take on new concoctions.”
b bar is hidden beyond the Wine and Spirits alley of habitat by honestbee, serving as an element of surprise behind the illusive mirror. Colours and geometries give the shelving its own character with brass and stone adding to the richness of textural qualities of the space.
Those looking to ease back this month will be able to indulge in b bar’s low ABV (alcohol by volume) cocktails which pack more flavour than potency. To provide guests with more options, b bar’s menu is categorised into low to high ABV cocktails to suit any occasion. Not to be missed at b bar is Anton’s signature cocktail, Bienvenido, which is a Top 3 finalist in the 2018/2019 Bacardi Legacy competition. Also look out for Milky Whey, a classic milk punch cocktail made with a secret natural cola recipe comprising 15 ingredients, including dried lavender and coriander. More than your average mocktail, b bar’s non-alcoholic cocktails are complex and nuanced. Made with habitat by honestbee’s cold brew coffee from Hinoki and homemade kaya from Lazy Loaf, the Cold Brew Colada is a spin on the traditional Pina Colada.
Tucked away in NewGen Retail concept habitat by honestbee, lies two exciting entrants set to shake up Singapore’s dining scene and change your notion of a grocery and dining destination. Introducing oyster and seafood bar hama hama, which brings Asian-inspired small plates and progressive cocktail bar b bar - habitat by honestbee's answer to a speakeasy that's beyond their famous mirrored cul-de-sac Wine and Spirits alley.
Conceptualised by Chef De Cuisine Vincent Ng, hama hama injects a rustic elegance into its seasonal sharing menu. With oysters as the main draw, choose from nine different types that range from French to Irish, including two house specials. hama hama 'pimps' oysters with five cooking styles that range from light (a cincau-like lemon and hot sauce jelly) to a crunchy bite (breadcrumbs with mentaiko aioli).
With its white and blue tiles and gold and brass accents, hama hama is a stylish kitchen and bar for seafood lovers. The main show-kitchen at the back and counter kitchen give guests first class seats to an intimate dining experience. With the ocean’s best catch of the day, guests can start off with the Truffle Udon made with shio kombu, packed with umami goodness in a truffle oil emulsion. The Bouchot Mussels are also a must-try - Chef Vincent uses hae bee hiam (dried shrimp) powder, dehydrated and made from scratch, served with deep fried hor fun strips.
“With Singapore’s hot and humid weather, I like to present dishes that are lighter and more refreshing on the palate,” says Chef Vincent Ng. “We really wanted to put a modern spin on fresh seafood, without overcomplicating things and keeping the flavours simple and clean. Think casual fine dining with the use of Asian ingredients and European techniques. Desserts take you back in time with some nostalgia twists.
Once your appetites have been satiated at hama hama, hit up their b bar which is just a few steps away and in a hidden spot in an unassuming neighbourhood.

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.

Fitness enthusiasts wanting a more unconventional workout that comprises of more natural and effective methods of movement can now look forward to Kinetika X – a new fitness facility,powered by Technogym’s state of the art patented training systems - Kinesis™ and ARKE™.
Located in Tripleone Somerset, Kinetika X is fronted by Singapore’s only two Technogym Master Trainers, Ghaneswaran Sukumaran and Santhi Haridass who were both trained and certified in Italy.
Prior to the commencement of each member’s programme, the trainers will perform the measurement of their body statistics; weight, height, body fat and muscle mass, as well as Kinetika’s unique flexibility and balance test known as Vitruvio Testing. This allows trainers to tweak the program based on each member’s body type and individual strengths and weaknesses, ensuring efficient training in a safe and progressive way to avoid any injuries and health risks associated with incompatible training.
Upon entering Kinetika X, guests will be greeted by a row of sleek, futuristic exercise machines known as Kinesis™. This training system focuses on natural movements of the human body using an innovative patent-pending 3D pulley system that allows 360° tri-dimensional movements, providing a balance between conventional strength training and functional training that maximises training efficiency with visible results. It allows different exercises to be executed with ease, and the pulley systems also enable people from all body-types to train with ease, including the elderly, those with particular injuries and even the disabled.
While there other gyms in Singapore that are equipped with Kinesis™ machines, Kinetika X is the only gym in Singapore to boast a full complement of eight top-end Kinesis™ Class machines as well as a Singapore’s only two Technogym Master Trainers. They and a staff of Kineses™-qualified personal trainers are assigned to every Kinesis™ class to ensure that all training methods are carried out correctly.
Another highlight at Kinetika X not found in any other gym in Singapore are its core-centric ARKE™ training classes.
Meaning the ‘origin of things’ in Greek, ARKE™ enables training which re-enacts the different stages of development that everyone has been through, from going on all fours as a child to the erect posture of a healthy adult. ARKE™ equipment is divided into four categories. Each one bears the name of a natural element of the Greek philosophic tradition and is identified by a different colour scheme and shape, according to the type, energy intensity and the position in which they are used: Earth (green) for stability and proprioception; Water (blue) for agility and balance; Fire (red) for adaptability and control; Air (orange) for dynamism and reactivity.
Each of these elements allows for the most effective and complete training experience. In order to acquire the best physical condition, coordination, stability, balance, flexibility, strength, speed, agility, reactivity, cardiovascular and respiratory efficiency, all aspects of the body need to be trained.
Apart from Kinesis™ and ARKE™, Kinetika X has also acquired the OMNIA™, which is a new functional training offer that maximizes members' interaction. As suggested by the Latin origin of the word ("all things"), OMNIA™ offers infinite possibilities in all kinds of training modalities - strength, endurance, stability, flexibility, coordination and speed - and satisfies the widest range of user needs, abilities, and aspirations.

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.

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.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was developed over 100 years ago and emphasizes bringing combat to the ground where a larger person's size and strength advantage is neutralized. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is recognized as being one of the world's proven most effective martial arts and was responsible for launching modern day Mixed-Martial Arts competitions such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and One Fighting Championship (OneFC).
The Gentle Art Academy's syllabus was developed by brothers Guilherme and Rafael Mendes (8x World Champions) who are based in California, USA.

Classes for kids at The Gentle Art are spilt according to age. Little ones in the Babybolos (3-5yo) will be encouraged to develop and practice their physical skills through play. They will also get to nurture key social and emotional skills while engaging in activities that require cooperation, self-awareness, and communication with peers. Older kids in the Lil’ Champion class (5-8yo) will have a chance to build up their stamina and endurance while developing fine and gross motor skills, spatial awareness, coordination, balance, agility, flexibility and sport preparation. Those in the Teen Warriors class (8- 12yo) will focus on the precision and the detailed execution of the techniques while building their core stamina and strength.
The academy has even launched yoga classes for parents during selected kids classes so that parents can get a good stretch and a workout while waiting for their kids to finish their lessons. More adventurous parents can even join the academy’s adult BJJ classes on the weekend to pick up some practical combat skill for themselves during the hour of the kids class.
