Chapter One Bar and Bistro
Time Out says
Chapter One has turned its first page and our first word for it is ‘atmosphere’. Plush leather seats, enamelled wood panelling and flooring in combination with pop art make for a comfy (but manly) hangout spot.
Like any bistro, the place is food heavy, serving a variety of western dishes with a bias towards tapas and gourmet coffee. Similar to many other bar/bistro combinations, the menu is populated with local favourites. On the bar side of things, wine bores will find comfort in Chapter One’s own cellar with a selection of fine wines, wide range of single malts, liqueur, sake, shochu, cocktails and beer on tap. ‘The Godfather’ poster here is not just for show; they have a humidor with a selection of cigars to go with it. Let out some lingering blue smoke with a game of pool or darts and you have your gentlemen’s night right there.
For a livelier night out, performers Magnifico, Bernie Be, Allan G Trio, Ashik and Nite Live will take the stage six days out of a week. They have a large projector screen in addition to the stage, so you might want to take advantage of that by booking them for your own private events or functions. Jay Chooi
