“lots of potential, but a bit sterile”
Review of Balaclava - CLOSED

Price range: $20 - $25

Restaurant details
Neighborhood: Downtown Core
Description: BALACLAVA was an institution of sorts when it was in Suntec City for over 10 years from 2000 to 2010. It found a temporary residence in ION Orchard from 2010 to 2014; then took at sabbatical until now. On September 1st, the iconic BALACLAVA will return to Suntec City again where it will continue to defy convention by marrying comfort and luxury, with great drinks and eats, and an energetic vibe. In keeping with tradition, as one would wind down the day, BALACLAVA will be the place to let your hair down, live a little and party a lot.

“lots of potential, but a bit sterile”
Reviewed February 26, 2011

wife and i were just after a cocktail or two and liked the view and the approach, but thought that it was just a bit sterile in its approach, and the music was a bit too dance and drum and base focused for the time we were there (only 7.30pm)
the cocktails aren't cheap, but nothing in Singapore is, however, my wife's Black Russian (not much more than a mixed drink) was $18 and my martini only appeared to have about one shot of vodka in it for the same price. too dear if you ask me.
