The Chop House at VivoCity

image

If you’ve ever been to the Wooloomooloo Steakhouse in Raffles City, you may be delighted to know that the same people have opened up another F&B outlet in the form of gastro-bar The Chop House. I can just imagine bosses who aren’t brave enough to fire their non-performing employees, bringing them to The Chop House and saying there’s more than 1 thing going Chop this evening. Ok, bad joke. Oh well, I tried.

This is a much more casual joint as compared to Wooloomooloo. While I loved the experience of dining in the dim, quite atas Wooloomooloo, The Chop House has a more open, see through vibe to it. Dining here won’t cause your wallet to be chopped into two either.

The most interesting feature here, apart from the food is that The Chop House offers Singapore’s first SelfTap Beer system. A total of 5 taps are located in and around the restaurant, where customers are able to pull pints at their leisure. The great thing about this is that if you just want to drink a few sips of beer, you can go ahead to dispense yourself that amount, and be charged by the millilitre instead of pint! And if you want your beer super cold, but you are a tortoise like me and your beer always gets warm, you can simply pour a small portion, and refill again later so the beer is always icy cold! All you have to do is purchase a stored value card from the cashier for $5, top up the card with a value of your choice and tap the card against the SelfTap reader to tap away your very own beer!

Pan Pacific Singapore – Pacific Club Lounge

If you’re thinking of having a staycation at the Pan Pacific Singapore, I highly recommend that you pay a little more to get access to the Pan Pacific Hotel Pacific Club Lounge. We thought the Pacific Club to be well appointed with an East meets West design that blended very well together. Throughout our entire staycation, apart from some time spent in the pool, the rest of our waking hours were pretty much spent at the Pacific Club!

I often like to summarise my liking for a particular type of decor by saying whether it would be something I would like my house to look like. In this case, the Pacific Club passed the test. I certainly would love my living room to be furnished in this manner, comforting, inviting, yet still classy and elegant.

Of course, having club lounge access means having a few special privileges, such as the opportunity to have breakfast on the 38th floor of the Pan Pacific Singapore, rather than at the usual hotel restaurant (The Edge) with everyone else. Afternoon tea and evening cocktails are also provided, so you never have to worry about going hungry. During the in-between hours, you can still get drinks and fruits.

We checked in at the Pan Pacific Singapore just in time to enjoy the afternoon tea spread from 3pm – 5pm. Of course, don’t be expecting an entire afternoon tea buffet like what you would get in a proper afternoon tea.

Afternoon Tea at Conrad Executive Lounge

 

This is the 3rd year running that we’ve stayed at the Conrad. One of the delights in staying at one of the executive rooms is that you can get access to the Executive Lounge. If you’re on business or on holiday, you probably won’t stay long at the lounge. However, if you’re living in Singapore, it makes perfect sense. The whole day, starting from breakfast time all the way till 11pm, you can get drinks and nibbles. Breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails are also provided. If you ask me, it’s the perfect getaway in Singapore. Take a book with you and just while away the time at the lounge. Every 15 minutes or so, order a new drink!

1st start off with a cold drink. For me, I chose the coke, but the Partner wasted no time in jumping straight for the alcohol.

Conrad Executive Lounge Hot Chocolate and Latte (2)

Next, go for a hot drink like hot chocolate or hot latte. Why not have a biscuit or 2 as well. I kinda like this picture because the cups look like they are floating in the clouds…

Conrad Executive Lounge Iced Chocolate and Beer

Don’t just stop at 2 drinks. While you are on a roll, order a 3rd one. Yes I really like the chocolate drinks at Conrad, hot or cold!

Nicely displayed chocolates, they always make me smile.
