Quiet galleries scattered inside the barrack. What impressed me is the Timbre with bounce castle and Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream. Nekkid also provide well atmosphere for a drink with tasty snacks.

Was taking a stroll and chanced upon this place which i understood used to be an army camp in the past. Saw some interesting art work while there. A pretty quiet place on a Saturday morning.
