One of the most highly-anticipated hotels that are opening in 2017 has finally been unveiled over the last week along Robertson Quay - The Warehouse Hotel (from the folks behind The Lo & Behold Group) has a room inventory of 37 across six different categories. This beautiful hotel is designed by the homegrown agency Asylum and is reminiscent of the building’s original life as a ‘godown’ during the height of Singapore’s spice trade.
The Warehouse Hotel is also home to a signature lobby bar that showcases an in-house cocktail programme that centers around house-made alcohol infusions and essences. Paying homage to the three distinct eras of the hotel’s past, the eclectic beverage menu is a journey through each incarnation. Guests will enjoy a taste of the spice trade, drink up the underbelly of illegal distilleries, and finally soak in the heady 80s -when the building housed Singapore’s most renowned disco of the era.
The entire culinary portfolio has been devised by highly-acclaimed Chef Willin Low who is Chef-Partner for the hotel’s flagship restaurant, Po. Chef Low also spearheads the menus for breakfast, in-room dining and the lobby bar. As the founder of Wild Rocket - one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants - the Mod-Sin pioneer has crafted a loving revival of the flavours of yesteryear and refined interpretations of local favourites using only the finest Asian ingredients exclusively for the hotel. Signature dishes include a Charcoal-grilled Iberico Satay, Spicy Tamarind Barramundi and Carabinero Prawns & Konbu Mee. Po is a tribute to popo - the Mandarin word for grandmother - as well as the richness of Singapore’s culinary heritage.
The Warehouse Hotel boasts 37 elegant rooms across six categories designed in muted tones with many ofering double-high ceilings. With its signature triple-pitched roof, and original masonry walls, the rooms were designed to compliment the building’s existing layout, making each one diferent. The lobby bar and reception are ideal for relaxation and soaking up the vibrant atmosphere, while the rooftop infinity swimming pool overlooking the river provides a surprisingly calm escape amidst the urban landscape.
