UberGuide: Tiong Bahru’s Top 5 Spots

Tiong Bahru, Singapore’s oldest residential estate, is undergoing a cultural explosion. With a rich variety of cafes, bars and concept stores competing for your attention, we’ve listed our favorite Tiong Bahru establishments.

Vibrant decor, high energy levels and grooming experts make this mens-only salon a treat for all senses. If you’re seeking a pampered evening, with a whisky on the rocks to boot, We Need a Hero is the one-stop spot for you.

Tiong Bahru’s earliest indie cafe, Forty Hands is where the revitalization of the neighbourhood began. We recommend you try a cup of their speciality coffee while catching up with old friends.


The exposed brick, mortar and wood interiors lends this watering hole that perfect post-work, laid back aesthetic. Our top pick is the classic Old-Fashioned – that’s almost as plucky as their name.

Tucked away in the heart of Tiong Bahru, is Books Actually, a boutique bookshop and vintage store. We love Books Actually for their collection of both classic and obscure titles, handmade stationery and their brand of literary quirk.

Last, but certainly not the least, Stranglets curates an eclectic mix of home decor, trinkets and accessories. Perfect for luxury gifts, souvenirs or some well-deserved self-indulgence.
