A club with character

Monday 31 Oct 2011

Reminiscing Singapore's colonial past while the east meets the west.

The 2nd Floor, a new restaurant in the American Club, was designed with the intention of fusing Eastern and Western influences. It features tiled ceilings, a brick wall behind the bar, and a hardwood-floored pavilion, evoking an ambiance that is reminiscent of Singapore’s colonial past. Eastern influences come into play through the use of movable dividers, bringing to mind traditional Chinese screens.

By clever manipulation, these screens can be used to expand the bar area. Shades of sapphire, emerald, and amethyst dominate the interior, casting a muted and sophisticated atmosphere upon the restaurant. These neutral shades, combined with glass dividers that reach from the floor to the ceiling, exude a taste of refinement that characterises The 2nd Floor.
