Description: Embracing the heritage setting that defines the hotel, The Lobby Lounge encapsulates the allure of the old-world whilst maintaining highlights of modernity. A centrepiece of the hotel, the luxurious space radiates with elegance and charm. By day, the sun-filled space makes for an ideal setting for a leisurely afternoon tea experience where the Royal Heritage Afternoon Tea is served on a classic three-tier stand. Well-catered for different meal periods, light breakfast options are available, in addition to an a la carte menu which offers signature specialties and sharing platters from Ash & Elm. Accompanied by live music every afternoon during Afternoon Tea and in the evenings, guests can expect soulful nights amidst soft lights that complement the majestic backdrop for an evening wind-down over bespoke wines and cocktails.

A great place to have afternoon tea during your stay at the IC. There's always good English Breakfast Tea and some biscuits. Staff are wonderful.

“A sanctuary for reflection”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We did not have a chance to visit the lounge when we stayed at the Intercontinental, but we passed it many times and wondered what it would be like to sit in that big, open opulently-decorated room. We built up a big thirst at Bugis Junction, so we decided to duck out on the bright noise of the afternoon and enjoy a drink in beautiful surroundings. We visited at about 3 pm but we chose not to have high tea. My wife ordered TWG Earl Grey hot tea, and I had iced red Christmas tea that was unusually tasty, probably because they spiked the tea with a strong dose of cinnamon. I was impressed with the architecture and decoration of the lounge. I appreciate the shophouse architecture with the five-feet covered walks and subdivided sections (originally to hold shops). They put a great number of pillars in the lounge even though they were not needed, and the ceiling was decorated with hand painted garlands and crystal chandeliers. The tables are farther apart than at the Olive Tree Restaurant in order to put quiet distance between customers. The tea pots are silver orbs, only slightly less beautiful than the golden orbs used by the TWG tea shops in Singapore. Now we know we can have a quiet and relaxing cup of tea in lovely surroundings whenever we are near Bugis Junction. How do we know? I noticed appreciatively that one of the hotel staff reminded a mother who was walking her small child in squeaker shoes around the periphery of the lounge that management wants the people inside to enjoy a less frenetic ambience.
