Part-boutique, part-cafe and gallery, Merci Marcel is this quaint French restaurant at the hip Tiong Bahru district that at times serves as an exhibition space for established and upcoming talents.

The flavor of the month is Singapore-based French artist Gabriel Dufourcq, whose current body of work features silhouettes of celebrities and public figures pasted against various news clippings. His pieces are a social commentary on how the media molds the public's perception of these icons.

This lounge got its name from the crystal chandeliers that hang from its ceilings, all of which are from crystal maker St. Louis in France.

To complement the extravagant lighting fixtures, a wide variety of Champagne and whisky is served in equally beautiful crystal glasses. Booking one of the four private rooms will give you and your party room to try out the bubbly in peace.

The latest brainchild of British chef Marco Pierre White, the newly opened English House serves up a private club atmosphere along with modern English cuisine. The owner has populated the perfectly preserved 19th-century colonial shophouses with antiques as precious in heritage as its home. It closely resembles dining at the old home of your aunt who loves to travel.

The entire place took three years to complete. Its next phase is to open 18 guestrooms on the second floor. The chef, who famously turned down Michelin stars in the past, has reportedly requested the institution not to send over inspectors to his new restaurant.

Singapore is speckled with rooftop bars, but The Other Roof wanted to set itself apart from those other establishments. The tapas on the menu might sound enticing but the 75-seater bar draws the drinkers in through a different means. The Other Room is changing the way Singaporeans take their tea and nurse their cocktails by putting the two libations together. It's the first and only bar in the world that crafts its own spirits—all 400 of themwith a tea finish.
