South Beach Avenue -the retail component of the South Beach development, encompasses over 60,000 square feet of space with direct connectivity to the Esplanade and City Hall MRT.The retail space is spread across the entire basement, street level as well as the conservation building.
The microclimatic canopy which shelters the retail spaces will provide pedestrians, shoppers and diners with a high level of thermal comfort throughout the day and a naturally ventilated shelter from the worst of the city’s tropical climate. One can enjoy an exquisite all-day dining in a sunken plaza built for natural comfort and convenience. The conserved blocks on site have been restored to provide maximum flexibility of space. The conserved block is designed to strategically function as a large space for innovative concepts and high end brands.
The South Beach is a 654-room luxury H.I.P. (Highly Individualised People and Places) hotel located at the south of Beach Road in the Marina Bay area, and stands as a visionary development at the gateway to Singapore’s thriving city centre and historic Civic District.
Designed by renowned French designer Philippe Starck, London-based Foster + Partners in partnership with international architecture firm Aedas, the development cleverly merges the old blocks of Beach Road Camp and the new South Beach Club with two ultra-modern 34- and 45-storey towers.
With emphasis on Imaginative Social Spaces that cater to the need for being ‘Alone Together’, The South Beach is a Hotel of Design which aims to further promote the luxury H.I.P. hotel concept to the region and set new hospitality standards by Creating Infinite Experiences for, and with you.
A lifestyle destination in itself, The South Beach resides on the edge of the Civic District and is walking distance from Esplanade train station (MRT) and City Hall train station (MRT). The hotel is also surrounded by a myriad of shopping malls and infinite points of interests. This includes the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay, the ArtScience Museum, National Gallery Singapore and multicultural neighbourhoods such as Arab Street as well as historical landmarks like the Civilian War Memorial.
The South Beach is where the inspired and aspired gather to build connections and/or indulge in quietude; where work and play seamlessly come together.
You can't miss this quaint little cafe along Jalan Bukit Ho Swee. You will be greeted with a splash of colour and its vintage decor. After all, Le Halo is not just an all-day breakfast cafe, it is also a vintage shop. In collaboration with Chair-ish The Moments, an online vintage shop that has a small retail space with some of their products beautifully merged together in the café.
The Chinese zodiac animal drawings on the wall are designed by Joseph Wong, a senior manger of a foreign Bank, specially commissioned and shaped like toast in line with the cafe's logo and face left or right in line with feng shui configurations. Its owner Elia Lim is a new kid in the business as well. Everything about the cafe mirrors her own life - bubbly, bright, honest and all heart. She takes the name "Le" from the Chinese character "kuai le" meaning happy. And "halo"? Well, she hopes you taste a bit of heaven in her food creations. It may be a 9-minute walk from Tiong Bahru MRT station but the walk will be worth it.
The Piggy Stew is Le Halo's best selling item so far. Slow cooked to full flavour with generous chunks of pork, it is served with fingers of crispy buttered toast, making them the perfect companion for this dish.
