With an eye for expanding the popular Privé brand to distinctive locations, leading lifestyle operator, The Privé Group, have opened its 5th Privé outlet at the busy junction of Orchard and Scotts Road, Singapore. Prominently located at the alfresco terrace outside the main entrance of Wheelock Place, Privé is an all-day drinks and dining venue open for breakfast all the way to post-dinner drinks and supper.
With its prominent position along the pedestrian footpath, Privé is an ideal refuge from the bustle of Orchard Road. Whether you want to rest your feet after a day of shopping, grab a late-night drink with friends after a midnight movie or kick back and watch the world go by, Prive’s breezy terrace is perfect for socialising and relaxing.
As with all other Privé outlets, Privé Orchard’s distinctive location offers commanding views of its surroundings, and is a great spot from which to enjoy the goings-on during Chinese New Year, the Great Singapore Sale, Christmas and more. Open all-day and all-night, it’s a convenient venue that is easy accessible from Orchard MRT, surrounding bus stops and the many neighbouring malls. It’s also a hop and skip away for party goers from the Orchard Towers’ area and movie-goers from Shaw Centre who may be looking for a casual late-night snack or drink.
Design-wise, HUI DESIGNS, combined old school architectural elements from Tiong Bahru, including the ubiquitous metal grills, mosaic flooring and comfortable rattan furniture, with a more modern French café vibe.
Creating a green sanctuary from the mid-day heat and to evoke an outdoor botanical feel in the middle of Orchard Road, HUI DESIGNS fashioned a wall of lush planters lining the opening of the louver shutter windows.
The outward facing tables at the edge of the space are also reminiscent of the quintessential cafes in Paris, where diners can take a breather and ‘people watch’. Indoor sofas, benches, bar stools and high tables also offer the best views of Orchard Road and encourage casual socialising over drinks and food.
