“Magnificent”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

A beautiful building with an interior you cannot believe. Visit the courtyard to see the statues and look at the building architecture. Inside on the ground floor is a wonderfull large cocktail lounge called Devine and it certainly is. See the high glass wine cooler store behind the bar, access is by a waitress in a fairy costume hoisted by wire like a real story book fairy. The interior decor is something you wont see anywhere else and a must see for any visitor to Singapore and of course the cocktails are the best in town.

“Interesting”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Beautiful building, especially at night. You can easily find it from Victoria street. If you like Art Deko, you will enjoy it. Nice garden and nice inside view.

“Amazing Art Deco”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled upon this building after visiting Arab street. Amazing ! Courtyard peaceful, lots of statues of famous people ( an eclectic mix). Inside is even more impressive. The lounge is open to the public both alcohol, tea and coffee available. The waitress was very friendly and explained the building to us. Will have to go back after 6pm to see the angels wire fly to the top of the wine fridge. We had coffee and enjoyed the restful interlude from frantic Singapore.

“Like ART DECO? Don't Miss this place!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

The Parkview Square in Northbridge Road was Art Deco madness. If you like Art Deco you'll love this place. Take a walk around the building and into the gardens and blow your mind. The inside vestibule, foyers, lifts, entertaining areas all around will just leave you spellbound if you're into it. Unfortunately they won't let you take photos. Ask nicely to the security and they will let you wonder around provided you keep cameras in bag. Apparently the place has a few Embassy's on the higher levels and that is why they are so security conscious. Just don't miss this place if you like Art Deco. We found it much better than the Rockefella Building in NY, even though that did impress us. The security guard told us that the Building is not highly endorsed in Travel Books, brochures, tours etc because of security. That explained why our Lonely Planet Guide did not give it the dues that we felt it deserved.

“An office building. A pity as there is so much potential.”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

The architecture is brilliant or could be an eye sore as it is really different from the surrounding buildings. With much potential to look chic and edgy, there are not many office space being leased here. Not for tourists and certainly not a place you should particularly travel to.
