6 Cafes In Rangoon Road You Must Check Out This Weekend

Rangoon Road Cafes

Rangoon Road is one of those areas that we’d love to think of as the “last frontiers of Singapore”. In our memories, we grew up knowing Rangoon Road as one laid back neighbourhood scattered with coffee shops, little eateries and workshops. When one thinks of Rangoon Road, Ng Ah Sio and Founders Bak Kut Teh come to mind.

However, the neighbourhood is more than just bak kut teh. While Rangoon Road may not have evolved much, it is no less quaint and lovely. Today, many new cafes have opened in the neighbourhood and it is hardly a surprise given the strategic location.

Here is a guide to cafes in the Rangoon Road neighbourhood.

Guide to Everton Park Neighbourhood Singapore

Everton Park Guide

Everton Park is quickly becoming the latest it neighbourhood. Some call it the new Tiong Bahru, and it is not difficult to see why. Since Nylon Coffee Roasters and Grin Affair started here in 2012, this quiet HDB neighbourhood has been drawing foodies to explore the area.

Today, there are eight cafes in this enclave, and we won’t be surprised if more cafes and shops choose to open here in the future. You know that Everton Park is officially cool when hotelier Loh Lik Peng – who is behind many boutique hotels and restaurants in off-the-radar neighbourhoods – has also helped to set up a cafe here.

Happy Hour at Gravity Bar, Carlton Hotel Singapore

Gravity Bar Cocktails

What constitutes to a good bar? Great drinks, tasty snacks, a hideout where you can relax after a long day at work, and ideally, it should play nice music that make you feel at home. Gravity Bar at Carlton Hotel Singapore, one of our favourite secret hideouts in town, is one such place.

With many tempting promotions, chill at Gravity Bar and celebrate Happy Hour with drinks from opening to 8 pm daily. Selected house wines are available at attractive prices, including draft beer from $8++ per half pint, house pours, martinis and cocktails from $10++ (U.P. S$14 – S$16). If not, go for a sparkling wine cocktail party – it is only S$15++ per glass (U.P. S$22++). Just typing these make me crave for a booze and I am thankful Gravity Bar is so centrally located and convenient.

And what marries good drink best? Better snacks, of course! Munch on mini portobello mushrooms and the classic local chicken wings marinated with prawn paste. Cheese lovers will fall head over heels in love with the crispy nachos that is served with three types of cheeses. Another favourite is the cheese fries that is generously sprinkled with shredded seaweed.
