Chijmes, Singapore

4.1
Combine modern entertainment with spiritual history at Chijmes, a multi-purpose hall that was once a Catholic convent. The original convent, called Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus, was built in 1840, with an additional chapel constructed in 1904; it operated for over 100 years. Located on Victoria Street in the city's main business district, this Gothic-style complex has since been named a national monument and been converted into a commercial destination. View the architecture, browse the shops, enjoy fine dining, or come for a special event.

  • Beautiful building in the heart of Singapore. A converted convent, it features stunning stain glass windows on the main hall. At night, the hall is illuminated from the interior, making the windows truly glow from the outside. Stunning. Unfortunately, the restaurants here are not particularly great, and seem to be aimed squarely at tourists. Inflated pricing and sub par quality in some of the venues. I haven't tried all, so some may be okay. Worth just visiting to see the building, however.
  • This place is very lively and vivid especially on weekends. Ideally located across the Carlton hotel, it surely will please those of you looking for affordable drinks in a chilled and relaxed atmosphere (Happy hours on night time anyone?) The music is loud, the bars and terraces are busy but it’s worth the shot. I love the open space in the middle with the giant flat screens. Last but not least the servers are really prompt and courteous. I recommend that place.
  • Bars and Restaurants inside a old Church, that's weird for a European! But it's location is good and they have a fine selection of food's, drinks and beer. You should stop by when it's dark, then the white church stands out the most from the surrounding skyscrapers. I was here watching a ski race on the big TV screens, definitely a special place, sitting in the singaporean evening heat inside a church with a beer and watching ski drivers.
  • Superb ambience. Must visit for all who visit Singapore. It's got live music in the evenings on weekends and some great bars and restaurants!
  • Perfect! From food to drinks to atmosphere! Great place to dine and chill. Happy hour, music, good service, everything was great! Perfect for birthday celebration as well. (ask for complimentary cake) Just remember to make reservation. Awesome place!
