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.

    This is a great little spot to grab something to eat or for a drink in Singapore. Located close to Raffles and Raffles City. There is almost every cuisine available for both inside or outside dining. ...  more »

    Lovely historic building complex to visit for its wide variety of restaurants, bars and cafes located within Singapore's Central Business District. Once a Catholic school and an orphanage, CHIJMES is now very popular among the locals and tourists in the nighttime for its historic architecture, romantic atmosphere, as well as peaceful oasis amid the hustle and bustle of the city.

    Very nice place. A lot of food options, avoid Mexican food, pricey and no taste. Live music on Saturday nights if weather helps, also places just to seat and relax. Worth the trip, go and you will be surprised 😳

    The place have a very great atmosphere. Many restaurants and bars to choose from! It's a very nice cozy place with great scenery that you can go with your loved ones. Also a fun place that you can go during late nights to watch musical performances in bars.

    Nice place, different types of cafe/ bars, enjoyable atmosphere. Good for both eat & drinks. Be ready not all the places are opened during the day, better to visit after 17:00

    Charming former school, the CHIJMES hall is popular for functions. They recently renovated, it's quite spacious and welcoming. It's super chill on weekday evenings.
