From the sensational 2CELLOS returning to Singapore to a sublime champagne brunch on the beach, this week sees you zipping from one incredible experience to the next. Thank goodness there’s the long weekend for all that indulgence!
Tanjong Beach Club is back with the second edition of The Beach Spread, the series of unlimited champagne brunches specially held for 2015’s long weekends (especially for when you’re not escaping the country!). Featuring live DJ sets, entrance to this beach party is priced at $178++ with free-flowing champagnes, and $78++ if you just want a scrumptious buffet brunch without the bubbly. Kiddos under 12 get in for $48++.
Not sure what to expect? Check out our preview of the The Beach Spread’s previous edition – the Labour Day long weekend in May – here.
Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser took the world by storm back in 2011 with their instrumental version of Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal‘. Their beautiful, frenzied take on the pop hit redefined both the popular conception of the cello, as well as the capacities of ‘classical’ musicians in general. Their style has broken boundaries between different genres of music, from classical and film music, to pop and rock, and from Bach and Vivaldi to AC/DC and Nirvana.
Catch 2CELLOS live at The Kallang Theatre on the 16th of July, 8pm. Tickets are still available on Sistic.
We’d never dream of playing favourites, but there can’t be many cooler things to do than come hang with us at this cocktail extravaganza, presented by City Nomads and one of our favourite bars in Singapore, L’Aiglon.

For the first time in South-East Asia, The Macallan presents its newest addition – The Macallan Rare Cask – through an interactive exhibition showcasing the exquisite craft behind the whisky.

Best of all? The exhibition is free (you do, however, need to register) and you get a taste of the sherry that fills the oak casks as well as the exceptional Macallan Rare Cask.
