A new restaurant and bar is setting up shop this month, but wait, before you stretch your face into a yawn and roll your eyes right into their sockets at the mention of yet another opening, hear us out. Cheekily named Lepark – a play on ‘lepak’, the Singlish term for ‘chilling out’ – the self-billed ‘rooftop dining experience’ is set to take over the former car park of People’s Park Complex. But apart from serving up a range of Asian tapas and other comfort food with a view that overlooks the Chinatown and CBD areas, the owners are hoping to use the huge 63,000 sq ft space as an event venue, too.

The range of activities on the programme includes a pets adoption drive and charity car wash (May 9 and 10, 2 to 5pm), a live art performance by graffiti collective Band of Doodlers (May 9, 5pm to late), a folk acoustic music session (May 10, 2 to 5pm), and an outdoor sports session (May 10, 2 to 6pm, $25-$30). The highlight event, though, is Getai Ethnica (May 9, 5pm to late, $10 including a free beer). The second part of Getai Electronica mixes getai with contemporary local acts inspir
