The guys behind Pestle & Mortar amp up their cool factor with the opening of their first café/boutique on Jalan Doraisamy's The Row, so now fans can drink coffee in the company of their favourite clothing label. Taking up two floors, League of Captains has that industrial chic look down pat with bare cement floors, metal bar stools and glass displays doubling up as dining tables, while the upstairs alfresco area is perfect for lingering. The hanging green vines add a calming touch to the outlet's glass-heavy façade.
The beans here are sourced from Sprezzatura Coffee and for food, there are sandwiches and Crzypuff empanadas (which are like giant curry puffs) as well as cakes by The Accidental Bakers (try the coconut brownies and blueberry zucchini lemon buttercream cake). If you're here to shop, the boutique upstairs carries a small selection of clothes and accessories by Pestle & Mortar Clothing, Bellroy, Hypergrand, ICNY, Dr Denim, Raised by Wolves and Publish.
League of Captains is also connected to Slate, The Row's new event space poised to become a major spot for gigs and parties. Seeing as how Pestle & Mortar have hosted quite a number of parties in the past, it's only safe to assume that Slate might be their venue of choice in future.
