Tiong Bahru is no longer just an old estate, but has transformed into a cooler and hip place within the last two years with the opening of 40 Hands, Books Actually, The Orange Thimble, Open Door Policy and most recently SocialHaus.
You may have watched many American shows where friends and buddies hang out at a cheap local bar and enjoy drinks at an affordable place. SocialHaus fills that gap in Singapore where the drinks are actually quite reasonably priced.
During the Happy Hours before 8pm, house pours are priced at $8. As for the usual hours, bottles such as Heineken and Asahi are at $10, and house whites and reds are at $10 per glass.
I was recommended the Bob’s burger ($15.00) with all-beef patty served with fries and mixed salad. The patty was rather juicy and delicious and would make a filling meal. However, the buns and fries were a tad cold and blemished the overall experience.
