Where The Fun Is

Here are the places to enjoy live entertainment and dine in style as you get into the festive mood.

Original live music performances, great jokes, cocktails and good food come together at TAB, Singapore new live concert venue with a difference.

Spacious and well equipped, TAB seats 200 to 250 people comfortably or as many as 600 standing.  But unlike huge stadiums or cramped no-frills venues, this cozy night spot keeps customers happily water and fed.

We wanted to create a casual and intimate atmosphere with good drinks and food, which is totally different from the Indoor Stadium or Esplanade theatres, said co-owner Adrian Mah.

The menu swings from cinnamon and sugar coated tortillas to pastas, burgers and fresh tossed salads.

On the ground floor stage, you can choose to sit near the bars, at cozy tables or in your own private booth.

Upstairs, mixologist Zach is the poet behind the bar.  He concocts creative cocktails with names like Charlie Brown, a smooth blend of peanut butter, vanilla and vodka.

The Baibi (the lover) is an exotic mix of vodka, rose, apple and saffron.

Taking inspiration from legendary music venues in New York and London, where many up-and-coming artists get their start, the sleek two-level concert and dining space is a good place to give yourself the gift of music at the holidays.

Singapore has not had a live music venue on our scale, with our polish ever before, said Mr Mah.

Besides a sparkling showcase of up-and-coming Singaporean and International Artist-in-Residence, TAB periodically features ticketed concerts for established artists such as The Album Leaf, Ryan Cabrera, Rox and An Horse.  In the pipeline is a monthly stand-up comedy gig featuring the likes of Jonathan Atherton.

The best part is that TAB is located smack in the centre of town so you can easily stroll along Orchard before or after a great evening of entertainment.
