Osteria BBR by Alain Ducasse is Singapore’s latest social space, thrilling the senses of local residents to celebrate and enjoy at while offering an inspirational spot for global travellers when they return to the city.
First established in Raffles Singapore in 1896, the historic Bar & Billiard Room (BBR) has evolved with a new chapter by acclaimed Chef Alain Ducasse. The 124-year-old building, which started as a club during British colonial rule, continues to be the social gathering space of choice for travellers and the local community alike. Bar & Billiard Room has served as the backdrop of many unique Raffles stories over the years, and the last tiger in Singapore that escaped from a circus was said to be shot under its building in 1902. As Osteria BBR by Alain Ducasse, it retains the original name and celebrates the rich heritage of the space while reflecting its new concept. Offering a myriad of different dining and bar experiences every day, this concept reflects Alain Ducasse’s experiences and stories. It is modern, energetic, vibrant and accessible - a gathering place to meet, exchange and discover.
