Fun times await at the Lobby Bar at Amara Singapore.


Situated within Amara Singapore, the Lobby Bar is set to be an entirely different experience for guests. The dynamic space evolves with the rhythm of the day. Bathed in soft natural light during the day, the Lobby exudes vibrant energy, offering a relaxed grab-and-go concept. As night falls, the amber glow of the Bar, complemented by a curated wine collection, transforms the space into a lively setting for the second act.

Boasting a minimalist design aesthetic, the space exudes a contemporary, considered, and elegant ambience, taking the experience to a new level. The Lobby Bar design pays homage to the heritage of its surrounding neighbourhood, incorporating the essence of the architectural and cultural nuances of Tanjong Pagar, where the hotel first opened in 1986. The characteristic solid granite steps leading to the bar are reminiscent of the covered walkways found throughout the neighbourhood. Meanwhile, terracotta elements in the bar’s backdrop reference the roofs of the area’s historic shophouses.

The Lobby Bar offers classic wines such as Château Bourgneuf.


Collaborating with Grand Vin, Lobby Bar is poised to build a strong community of oenophiles, with a discerning variety of renowned wines. Top curations from renowned winemakers include Champagne Louis Roederer, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and Domaine Faiveley. Additionally, Lobby Bar will also have the privilege of housing Singapore’s most extensive collection of Champagne Louis Roederer. Founded in 1776, the Louis Roederer House is one of the last great Champagne houses to have remained family-run and independent in the region.

The re-imagined Cafe Oriental.


In addition to the debut of Lobby Bar, the adjacent Cafe Oriental has now reopened after undergoing interior refurbishment. Using the nearby Tanjong Pagar Plaza Food Centre as the design anchor for the space, Cafe Oriental re-imagines the modern-day hawker stall, incorporating details such as the tiled floor pattern to the stainless steel counters commonly found in hawker stalls.


Hearty dishes serve as fuel for piquant conversations. Inspired by Singapore’s diverse cultural mosaic honed by time-honoured recipes passed down through the generations, Cafe Oriental transforms memories into soulful dishes presented in its inaugural reopening menu, specially curated by Chef Danny Bong.
