Chijmes Tips (5)

La Baroque, Chijmes: Australian Female punched in face by Pub manager

I was out with 2 friends at Le Baroque, enjoying a Saturday night out, until I was punched in the face by the manager of the place. Before I continue, I am a petite, Australian female, with a professional career and cannot believe what happened to us by the staff at Le Baroque, Chijmes.

We were good patrons, after spending hours and a lot of money on over-priced drinks at Le Baroque. My friends and I decided to take half-a-jug of beer that had been left at the table next to ours – it seemed like a harmless act. We were accused of stealing beer by the waitresses – this same jug of beer had been left unfinished and was going to be disposed of.

As a result, I was man-handled and yelled at by a number of bouncers and the manager, who were all extremely aggressive and violent. I was physically picked up and thrown outside.

I was completely disgraced by the unnecessary offensive behaviour from all of the staff. I exchanged some heated remarks, of which the manager felt justified to then punch me directly in the face. My nose was bleeding and I thought my nose was broken. My friends and I called the police and I spent the rest of the evening and morning at the hospital, where I had x-rays for my nose.

Luckily my nose is not broken, but very swollen and painful. I am now disfigured and have concussion. This is not nonsensical behaviour by any man, especially to a woman and by any 'so-called' manager. I am new to Singapore and I thought I was in a respectable bar in a lovely setting like The Chijmes.

To ALL women, please reconsider going here. I am still in shock and feel completely violated.

Chijmes: Romantic and European Atmosphere

The white Gothe church is located on Chijmes square, but close to it are several stylish restaurants, pubs, bars and clubs. One can't deny its beauty neither in day nor at night. I love especially the atmosphere at night when yellow light arms the air. It's romantic and European, belongs to couples...

Chijmes: Bars, music and plenty of people!

Chijmes is on the site of a former convent school for girls, and the beautiful gothic-style church is still a main feature of the complex. Quiet during the day, Chijmes comes alive at night with a number of restaurants, bars and live music venues clustered around a sunken courtyard. The trees are strung with sparkling white fairy lights making everywhere look really pretty, and the whole place has a great atmosphere.

It's also worth a visit during the day, to see the beautiful colonial buildings by day, and to browse around the boutique style gift shops.

Dress Code smart casual.
