Inspirock Rating:
2.7/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web
Bras Bash Complex was completed in 1980. In the early 1980s, Bras Basah Complex hosted small-scale Xinyao recitals and performance which were immensely popular and drew large crowds. During its peak, there was an event taking place almost every Saturday at the complex. There were also other arts and culture-related activities such as book fairs and art exhibitions which helped to attract customers.

Bras Bash Complex certainly flourished in its early years. Book collectors, students and bargain hunters looking for second-hand books to save a bit - all of them knew that Bras Basah Complex was the place to go to.

  • This is an old mall in the popular Bugis intersection. There are many shops selling printing solutions, books, art & craft materials, watches at a good bargain price. Furthermore, Singapore's largest 'Popular' book store and 'Art Friend' is located in this mall. Majority of the shops are normally operational between 10:30 AM to 8:00 PM.
  • Good place for stationeries and books. If you are an artist, you'd most probably be able to get most of your tools here. The coffeeshop at L1 is hidden at a corner but serves good and affordable local food.
  • Awesome place for second hand book and magazine hunters and Chinese book lovers. Sad to see iconic book stores closing down one by one, but the remaining ones still feature great selection.
  • Best place in Singapore to get books, print stuff (any stuff from documents to t-shirts) and buy all manner of delightful stationery.
  • Aka 书城 (book city). You can find most literatures here.
