“Huayu Cool” may just be another tagline from the annual Speak Mandarin Campaign for some but a few Chinese music buffs have heeded the Government’s call to actively make Mandarin cool. Shuffle, a new bistro and bar that has just opened its doors in bustling Clarke Quay is attempting to do just that!
Driven by a gap in the local scene for ‘Live’ acoustic Mandarin performances, Shuffle sets out to bridge the gap between quiet music cafes and loud cabaret clubs that we have in the market right now. Not to be confused with the popular dance movement, Shuffle offers a relaxing brand of entertainment with daily performances by talented local artistes showcasing the ‘cool’ side of Mandarin through their radio-friendly renditions of both popular Chinese and English songs from Jay Chou to Bruno Mars.
The name Shuffle is derived from the ‘shuffle’ function on most music players where users can jumble the songs on their playlist. This mixture of Chinese and English music is the bilingual performance that Shuffle brings, reflecting the multi-faceted interests of music listeners here as a result of Singapore’s successful bilingual education system. Consumers should not be pigeon-holed into choosing either only English or Chinese music for their entertainment which is what is offered in most entertainment outlets in the market currently - Shuffle changes this.
Even though the programming is mostly in Mandarin, there is little to suggest that this is your conventional Chinese establishment. Those expecting a place playing Mandopop to fit the stigma of being an ‘uncool’ Chinese establishment will be pleasantly surprised by what Shuffle has to offer. The place is decidedly western with a local touch – its modern décor and fusion menu reflecting the vibrancy and bilingualism of our local Chinese community today.
Shuffle is a fully licensed bistro and bar serving up ice-cold imported beers like the popular Taiwanese Lychee beer and other delectable concoctions that go perfectly well with the music and interesting food offerings like the Spam & Carrot Cake.
Shuffle Bistro Bar – Shuffling up the ‘Live’ entertainment scene!
The TongKang Colonial Bar & Restaurant, proudly brought to you by the Creative Eateries Group, presents experiential dining on the last surviving pair of tongkangs (light boats for carrying goods) in Singapore. The two tongkangs, which used to ply the Singapore River in the 1960s are true bastions of Singapore’s rich maritime heritage, and have recently been returned to their former glory after receiving careful restoration amounting to over a million dollars.
The first of these two treasured tongkangs houses the TongKang Gin Bar, the first bar of its kind in Singapore to feature an extensive slew of gin-based drinks using classic brands as well as boutique, vintage and premium gins of the "New Gin Movement" such as Bulldog, Blackwood’s and No. 209. At the TongKang Gin Bar, drinks will be served with accompaniments of Kacang Puteh, an assortment of roasted nuts that were ubiquitously sold by Indian immigrants in the early days of Singapore.
The TongKang Colonial Restaurant on the second boat is where diners will enjoy exquisite colonial cuisine aboard this gem of a historic vessel. This distinctive cuisine has evolved from the potpourri of influences in Singapore’s earlier days when tongkangs were commonplace. The restaurant’s lunch menu, features colonial-inspired items like the Old English Lamb & Kidney Pie and hearty favourites like Oxtail Stew with Potatoes & Carrots. In the lazy afternoons, High Tea is served on tiered tea stands, presenting guests with an indulgence of flavoured teas, pies, scones and petit fours.

Located at the new Marina Bay financial district, Akari is the newest entry to the vibrant Japanese dining scene in Singapore. Spread across 1,600 square feet at the ground plaza which sits above Marina Bay Link Mall, it has a view of the 2 auspiciously placed water buffalos which dominate the plaza area. The modern and cleanly designed restaurant is complemented by a cosy bar at the entrance devoted to serving Japanese sakes, shochus, whiskeys and cocktails. Adding a touch of tradition to the interior are the framed portraits of authentic Japanese wood cuts, a kimono obi as well as old sake pottery which provides an inviting and intimate setting that would appeal to the largely corporate diners.
Owner Andrew Tan, who also runs two other successful Japanese restaurants, Tomo Izakaya, at Clarke Quay and Esplanade Mall and two relatively new express Japanese outlets, Tori Tomo at Plaza Singapura and Tempura Bar at Clarke Quay in Singapore. At Akari, they present a more refined selection of Japanese food using authentic Japanese ingredients. They have also created a more relaxed atmosphere hence a semi-fine dining concept which we think will go down well with the corporate clientele.
Akari’s a la carte menu offers more than 70 items consisting of appetizers, salads, sashimi, braised, grilled, deep fried, sushi, rice, noodles, soup and desserts. A popular dish which has some coming back again and again is the Soki Tatsuta Age ($24) – Deep fried simmered tender pork soft rib-bone, the pork is well seasoned with just the right amount of crispiness on the outside while tender and moist inside. A must try is the Shishamo Arare Age An-Kake ($14) – a mixture of crispy and mushy textures as the fried flavourful smelts are coated with Japanese rice which is then deep fried to a crisp; the smelts sit in a sticky mixture of yuzu sauce and fish stock which lends it a refreshing flavour. For sashimi lovers, the Funamori Sashimi comes in a ship ($250 onwards) with 7-8 types of sashimi to serve 4. The dish requires a day’s advance order. Other recommendations include: the bestselling Wagyu Steak ($58) and the Aigamo Hourenso Salad ($18) – Simmered duck and spinach salad – a less common offering at Japanese restaurants.
The flavoured rice or takikomi gohan served at Akari is worth a mention. This comes with the bento set or the set meals (teishoku). The rice is steamed together with various seasonal ingredients which vary daily. These ingredients are lily bulb, perila leaf, mushrooms, sweet potato, soy bean, bean curd, ginkgo nut, water chestnut, bonito flakes and whatever seasonal ingredients are available.
With over 20 types of sakes to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice. Price ranges from $65 to $240 for 720 ml. Besides sake, Akari also carry a wide range of shochus, Japanese beer including premium beer brand, Umeinishiki from Ehime prefecture, its aromatic ale (334 ml, $18) is a perfect complement to red meat and sashimi. Other options include plum wines, red wines, white wines, champagne, spirits, mocktails and soft drinks.

Park Hotel Group's latest property, the Park Hotel Clarke Quay has opened in Singapore. Distinctive by its striking red-tiled roof and towers with spires, the 10-storey hotel is located by the historic Singapore River. DP Architects, who were behind Park Hotel Clarke Quay's unique design, were inspired by Singapore's Victorian-style architecture of the early 1800s. "The architecture of Park Hotel Clarke Quay presents a celebrative architecture that has its roots firmly planted in the history of Singapore. Yet at the same time, it conveys a sense of joy and pleasure of the life that is ever present along the Singapore River," said Mr Tai Lee Siang, Director of DP Architects. "While Clarke Quay is very vibrant at the street level, Park Hotel Clarke Quay brings back the romanticism to the skyline and a dreamlike quality with its turrets."
The light structural expression of the building mimics the cast-iron architecture of the colonial era. A clay roof topped by three spires crowns the modern yet ornate faÃ§ade of the hotel. The 336 rooms and suites are designed with a view of the Singapore River, offering the comforts of modern living. Outside, slender pillars with balustrades artfully frame the windows.
Park Hotel Clarke Quay also features a swimming pool complete with pool bar, gym facilities and Spa Park Asia, offering an outdoor spa experience. From the pool deck, guests can enjoy the splendid architecture of Park Hotel Clarke Quay in full view.
Strategically located along Clemenceau Avenue / Unity Street, the hotel is just minutes away from Singapore's premier shopping belt, Orchard Road, as well as the Marina Bay shopping belt, and in close vicinity to the financial district and theatres. It is also within walking distance of heritage-rich Civic District and nightlife hub, Clarke Quay.
Park Hotel Clarke Quay is located at 1 Unity Street
