Another new retail and food destination has soft-launched in Singapore, this time located at CBD, 6A Shenton Way.
Downtown Gallery positions itself as a “lifestyle, wellness and technology” space, boosting a 4000 square feet social kitchen with bookable dining spaces and cooking stations; and The Work Project co-working space.
The first storey will focus on pop-up stores and retail counters.
For CBD workers on a search for a NEW lunch and dinner time spot, some of the head-lining F&B names include Omotesando Koffee and SAMA Curry & Café, new-to-market brand Chen’s Mapo Tofu, and an express off-shoot of the famous Chatterbox Chicken Rice.
