How was your August? Probably busy. Busy shopping that is! With GSS coming together with National Day, many of us were definitely hoping to catch some last-last-minute discounts. Now that our recyclable bags are full (#savetheearth), we’ve tracked down some bars and cafes to kick back and chill!
Want to feel on top of the world? Re-energize yourself with a gorgeous evening view of Keppel Harbour and Sentosa. Propeller is the first rooftop bar at Harbourfront, and specialises in concocting creative cocktails. It’s tough to pick a favourite from their selection of delicious tipples, but if we had to choose, The Propeller Bay – a delicious mix of vodka, orange juice, raspberry syrup, and thyme – would be it. The homemade lime espuma topping can be torched for extra zest and is the perfect touch to propel our spirits to greater heights.
Of course, great drinks must be paired with great tapas! The bar offers a mighty combination of modern inventions, like the incredibly indulgent Pan-seared Scallops with Citrus Fennel Salad or the Seared Beef Cubes with Truffle Mayonnaise. Of course, that’s not all: if you’re lucky, you can watch the Sentosa Boardwalk fireworks from Propeller’s plush sofas. (Pro tip: it’s at 8pm.)

Chef Wan is back with yet another restaurant, and this time with the self-evident name of Chef Wan’s Kitchen. He’s making his comeback with a new mix of Moroccan, Javanese, Peranakan and Spanish recipes passed down from his grandmother to mother to auntie! (Don’t we all wish that our family had heirloom recipe books too?!) With dishes like Lawar Salad, Lontong, and Lemak Noodles, we’re head over heels for the lineup of heritage eats on the menu! The restaurant is currently pending its Halal certification, post-MUIS audit, so all Muslim friends are welcome too!
