Haw Par Villa has recently reopened its doors following extensive upgrading works.
Haw Par Villa - formerly known as the Tiger Balm Garden – is an 8.5-hectare Asian cultural park, the last of its kind in the world. Built in 1937, Singapore’s largest outdoor art gallery is the brainchild of Aw Boon Haw, the millionaire philanthropist and marketing extraordinaire who gifted the world Tiger Balm. The eclectic park is a treasure trove of Asian culture, history, philosophy and religion – quirky yet enlightening, at the same time. Since 2015, it is managed by Journeys Pte Ltd, an award-winning heritage specialist passionate in preserving and bringing the heritage gem to greater heights.
Check out the fresh look of the park, with restored sculptures such as the Main Arch and the fully air-conditioned Ten Courts of Hell. Technology is also used to create an immersive experience for visitors. Be greeted by projection mapping at the main entrance and enhanced lighting when you visit the park at night. What's more, you can look forward to more offerings, including a new restaurant and the world's first Hell's Museum, that will be added to the park in October.

Four Seasons Hotel Singapore ushers diners into a lush, botanical dining experience in the cool shelter of the terrace, a thoughtful extension of One-Ninety Bar designed for relaxed socials inspired by the nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Complementing Garden@One-Ninety is a menu by Chef de Cuisine Pierre Barusta that is keenly focused on spotlighting market-fresh produce. Highlights include a seasonal seafood tower, a celebration of ocean-fresh flavours with Maine lobster, oysters, king crab, mussels, prawns and Hokkaido scallops; succulent lobster roll with lime crème fraîche; char-grilled T-bone steak “Fiorentina” (grain fed MB4); miso chicken with sesame togarashi; and Scottish salmon, shimeji, spinach, kale in yuzu-soy broth.
Distinctly, Garden@One-Ninety offers a wide selection of creative, wholesome plant-based cuisine. These include signatures such as Vietnamese summer rolls with green mango, papaya and avocado; garden burger with chickpea patty, semi-dried tomatoes, hummus spread, pita bread; charred cauliflower, almond pesto, celeriac and black truffle; and vanilla-soy panna cotta, homemade coconut ice cream.
The inclusive menu allows for enjoyable dining for all, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free preferences, and embraces the diversity and spectrum of personal dietary and lifestyle choices of today’s guests.
Bar manager and mixologist Gabriel Carlos of One-Ninety Bar lends his talent and craftsmanship, conjuring a trinity of threes - of punch bowls, botanical cocktails and zero-proof cocktails that are all equally delightful.
Get the party started with tropical punch bowl Maracuy,a which dazzles with bold vodka, apricot brandy, passionfruit and peach clarified milk punch topped with prosecco and a floral finish for a sunny imbibe.
Botanical craft cocktails Theatrum Botanicum and Flor De Jamaica tantalizs with a delicious spirit-forward bouquet. Gin-forward with house-made herb syrup and clarified lemon juice, Theatrum Botanicum pays tribute to botanist John Parkinson who catalogued more than 3,000 species of herbal varietals, whilst vodka-based Flor De Jamaica is a bold interpretation of Agua de Jamaica, and is concocted with roselle and strawberry shrub and classic Italian bitters.
Proving that zero-proofs can be pleasurable too are creations such as the Guilin. Zesty and complex, the citrus forward distillate is made with a blend of three types of orange and uplifting spices of ginger and lemongrass, paired elegantly with house-made osmanthus and pineapple syrup, London Essence bitter orange and elderflower tonic for a guilt-free treat.
It’s “party-thyme” with the opening of Garden@One-Ninety! To celebrate, complimentary char-grilled meats and plant-based skewers will be grilled a la minute and served with any beverage enjoyed in Garden@One-Ninety from now until July 31, 2021, 5:30 to 7:30pm.
