Explore Our Neighbourhood

Often touted as the grittier cousin of Tiong Bahru, Jalan Besar has long been a foodie destination and is now growing as an unofficial creative cluster. Walking around, you are likely see numerous hardware stores and industrial goods merchants, traditional eateries as well as some seedy establishments. And if you take time to explore further, there is a new crop of hip eateries, cool bars and creative offices hidden among the shophouses and industrial buildings. So do plan for some time before or after the workshop at our studio to explore the many facades of this vibrant neighbourhood!
