Despite a restive history that includes being the location of public mass shooting in 1915, Outram Park has long laid low as a staid residential quarter. But in line with the city-state's coolness expansion, the charming hood is becoming a go-to destination for drinks, dining and dropping cash. A one-stop shop for this vibe is the Potato Head Folk, shown here, in which each floor is a different venue.

 

1. Potato Head Folk

Chill out all night in this fourstory historic building where each floor houses a different venue. Try burgers by chef Adam Penney at Three Buns Kitchen or walk to the second floor for table service amid wall murals at Three Buns Dining. The third floor bar Studio 1939 is perfect for after-dinner drinks, or head upstairs to the Rooftop Garden for the city view. 36 Keong Saik Rd.; pttheadfolk.com.

2. The Study

Relax at this quirky British bistro where you can fill up on comfort food. Their version of fish and chips is extra bellywarming. Ask the staff for the password to their mysterious Library cocktail bar next door. 49 Keong Saik Rd.; the-study.sg.

3. Restaurant Labyrinth

Take a counter seat at their open concept kitchen and watch chef Han Liguang and his team whip up unusual and unbeatable renditions of local favorites like chili-crab ice cream. 5 Neil Rd.; labyrinth.com.sg.
