Time Out says

Music lovers should bookmark Tempura Oji – not just for the food, as much as crunching into the deep-fried king tiger prawn ($19) give out a satisfying sound – but for its slick beats.

The sizzle from the tempura bar frying up spam ($10) or tempura moriawase ($19) might permeate the space in the day, but as dusk settles, techno tunes and house music starts to take over. It’s provided by a lineup of local DJs in a concealed bar located within Tempuja Oji. To gain access, search for an odd-looking beer fridge and walk through the door.

And those adventurous enough will find themselves at Brown Sugar, a hidden bar with nightly performances that range from house, soul, and funk – complemented with a selection of signature cocktails that include the Kaffir Sour ($20), made with ginger-infused whisky, kaffir lime leaves, and homemade ginger marmalade; and The Blind Pig ($24) served with Roku gin, beetroot marmalade, gula Melaka, and a slice of candied bacon.

“It’s something meant to be discovered,”  shares Dragg Wong, co-founder of this two-in-one concept. Uncover more about this unique space – and other hidden concepts – in our story here
