Drury Lane Café: Anything but a Theater Royal

The Drury Lane Café in Tanjong Pagar is far from being like the Theater Royal in London. You may have probably heard or seen the world famous Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, which is third and largest theatre to stand in London. Here in Singapore, it’s one of the many two story cafes in Tanjong Pagar. The closest association it can get is thru its name, and probably thru its red façade entrance that’s similar to a red telephone box. Other than that, the Drury Lane coffee shop is a still standout on its own, seeing how this nice place transforms into a full house of coffee lovers, all enjoying the specialty coffee and uninterrupted chill.

What to do and see in the Drury Lane Café in Tanjong Pagar

At first, the café looks compact if you are unaware of the spacious second floor hang out place. Though, the first floor is pretty interesting cos it sure seems like entering into a friendly unfinished laid-back art gallery, with mirrors and interesting trinkets to look at from every corner. Check out the coffee culture wall that they have, a witty way to display all the coffee inspirations, picks, and randoms that they have at their café. You can see the passion, you can see the appreciation – even more so from their baristas who would gladly offer good words on what coffee to try out. The crowd seems to agree too – so many groups of local and expat yuppies just having a good time over cups of brown, black, white coffee and some all-day breakfast food.

The coffee place is recommended for chill, dates, study, planning sessions, and after office gatherings. Likewise, interesting to see how the counter here is wide open, very welcoming.
