“Glad they kept this!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Oh, this is childhood memory. I wish my daughter will hold her wedding lunch/dinner here. Good food and just awesome sitting around looking up to the sky or absorbing the quietness in a busy city!

“Worth a look through”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus was once a school in the heart of Singapore. CHIJMES Hall (赞美礼堂), and Caldwell House, now an art gallery, have both been gazetted as national monuments. The complex has been restored for commercial purposes as a dining, shopping and entertainment centre with ethnic restaurants, shops and a function hall. Worth a look and this venue has been gazetted by the UNESCO World Heritage. You will also find the oldest residential house on this site. Unfortunately the hall of the church is usually closed but occassionally you will find it brilliantly lit up with great chandelliers from the ceilings as I did on my visit.

“2nd time at Cuscaden and it was just as much fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

First stumbled across the Cuscaden at CHIJMES as we were making our way back from the New Asia Bar.

We were just as impressed the second time around. Filipino wait staff left much to be desired but drink prices were reasonable and the crowd and atmosphere, coupled with the good live music certainly makes this a place worth visiting especially when you consider that there are so many other good venues within the ChIJmes complex.

“Nice place to relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This was across from my hotel. They have a great food selection, eat there a couple of evenings and the food was good. A couple of evenings they had live bands. It was fun to go hang out and listen to music before heading back to the hotel.
