What to eat and drink at South Beach Ave

JW Marriott Singapore South Beach officially opened last month to much fanfare, and along with it, the snazzy lifestyle enclave of South Beach Avenue.

The 32,000 square feet space that had tenants move in in dribs and drabs in the last year or so is now finally fully in operation with 16 lifestyle concepts, out of which 13 are F&B-focused. 

Make a date with your other half or the girlfriends. Here's everything you'll want to eat and drink at quite possibly Singapore's most stylish lifestyle quarter yet.

At Alchemist Beer Lab, sixteen state-of-the-art infusion towers are the star attraction, within which a variety of ingredients are infused into beers for some fantastical (and cheekily-named) new creations like the Obama, a stout with marshmallow, vanilla pod and mint leaves; and 50 Shades of Pink, a cider with pink guava. A modern European tapas-style menu with items like falafel and charcuterie provide nourishment.

Caffe Vergnano 1882 Singapore

When you're Italy's oldest family-owned coffee roaster (established in 1882, no less), maintaining quality will obviously be of top priority. This is why all of the products used in its Singapore outpost, from the coffee beans to chocolate powder, are imported directly from Italy. If coffees aren't your thing, opt for the indulgent Caffe Gianduja with espresso and hot chocolate topped with whipped cream; or the Espresso Shakerato mocktail. Latte art and espresso-making workshops are also available.
