This is certainly a hidden gem with live music and a great atmosphere. Went here with a few colleagues after work and had a great nights craic. Narrow streets with brightly coloured fronts, a must for a couple of hours if you're in town.

coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for
a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids
play traditional games along the lane. Also home to
the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most
