The gorgeous gothic-style 19th century church of CHIJMES was a picture-perfect Singapore icon even before the Hollywood filmmakers came calling. With beautiful neo-classical architecture as its centrepiece, it’s now a hotspot for drinking and dining, with not one or two, but more than 30 restaurants, cafes and bars on a single block. The atmosphere here starts each day as relaxed and family-friendly, but as night rolls in, the vibe gradually elevates to become an energetic hub of after-dark revelry. The plethora of choices means there’s something to suit all styles of diners, from those with a love of craft beers to those with a penchant for Michelin stars. Whether you’re there for a celebratory dinner or simply to watch sport, indulge your taste buds or catch up with friends, the varied delights of CHIJMES have you covered. Read on to discover which much-loved spots made the list including fine-dining restaurant Whitegrass, pan-Asian favourite Coriander Leaf, and our go-to for Japanese omakase in Singapore, Ashino.
