The Kampong Glam area known for its burgeoning hipster district has yet another draw card in the form of the old-meets-new Hotel Clover 769 North Bridge Road.
Housed in 2-storey shophouses constructed between 1840 and 1960, this former tailor and jewellery parlour has been converted into a 27 room boutique hotel by the Singa Group Of Companies.
The property is housed in one of the very few remaining clusters of traditional shops on North Bridge Road. The hotel’s façade features the Early Shophouse Style with a mix of Greco-Roman columns and Chinese walkways.
Hotel facilities include wifi, free local calls, in room broadband, air conditioning, in suite Jacuzzi and an open plan reception area ideal for small functions.
Located a 7-minute walk from Bugis MRT Station, a 10-minute drive from nightlife options at Clarke Quay and shopping at Orchard Road.
Changi International Airport is a 25-minute drive away with the hotel offering luggage storage at the 24-hour front desk.
The Kampong Glam neighbourhood first became popular with hipsters when Comme des garcons opened its guerrilla store on Haji Lane in 2005. Today, Kampong Glam is a retail and dining mecca with cocktail bars like Bar Stories, multi-concept Maison Ikkoku (known for its multibrand store, café and cocktail bar), Tokyo Bikes and the like.
