The Overview

Inspired by Tokyo's hybrid spaces, two style-savvy couples—Janice Ong and Thomas Song; Shanie Teoh and Franz Chua—set up this café cum fashion boutique September 2011, naming it after the Japanese manga animation Maison Ikkoku. This charming tri-level shop house packs a lot of style within its 370 square meters, ranging from whitewashed brick walls festooned with polished copper pipes and pre-loved wooden dressers to the collection of Japanese menswear labels. Head barista Muhammad Rizuan is often behind the Nuova Simonelli machine on the ground-floor café, crafting coffee embellished with intricate latte art. After 6 p.m., saunter up to the rooftop bar for another round of drinks—this time alcoholic—and soak in the views of the gold-domed Sultan Mosque next door.
