This convent dating back to 1841 has housed restaurants, clubs and shops since 1983. It is a place that is both pleasant and picturesque where one can relax and refresh. The convent itself is an attractive piece of architecture that I recommend one visits whilst in Singapore.

Nice ambience and service was pretty good. From the menu items offered we were excited - sort of a Thai-Khmer-Lao fusion with some twists. For tapas we had Goi Cuon and smoked sausages, which were pretty good. The Aussie beef salad (paid extra for the prime beef) was lacking except for the beef which was very tender and tasty. I...

Lots of different restaurants and nice bars, little oasis in the city, you enter it and it becomes quite. Had dinner in the IndoChine and can recommend that place to. Nice with the white church inside - one of my favourite places :-)

Just opposite Raffles this venue has a number of eating places facing into a middle court area. Good choice and if you're staying in Raffles then a short walk across the road.

We had gone to visit the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel but it was closed for renovation :( so we found ourselves in Chijmes instead. There are a lot of restaurants and bars to choose from but being the weekend, tables were hard to come by. We found a bar at the lower level for a couple of beers before... More

A real buzz to this place and so many places to chose from. Great atmosphere to meet as groups or a couple. Toilets are a bit of a walk otherwise this place is great

A must visit evening venue when in Singapore, really smart with a wide range of bars, restaurants. Lots of Happy Hour drink promotions with live music, glorious courtyard setting with illuminated historic buildings.

We were staying at Raffles Hotel, just across the road from Chijmes with a wonderful selection of retail shops and Restuarants for all tastes at very reasonable prices. Good for Lunch and it livens up in the evening for some great evening meals

We stopped by Chijmes when visiting the historical sites of Singapore. It's incredibly intricate and photogenic. Perfect spot if you like architecture photography.

Don't just visit the restuarants take the time to walk through the older buildings. We had a lovely quiet, restful look at the main hall with windows for each of the apostles. We are not particularly religious but it is nice to see this and how it sits amongst the restuarants and buzz.

Thank Dnaray
