How can you stand out in Singapore’s most colorful and vibrant river-front entertainment zones? Simple, be like the Penny Black Public House. They have al-fresco and tavern like choices for that sweet escape you might need, and maybe try the Snug Bar for some informal business meetings, and private parties. Their food servings are good for at least two-Asian-appetites. Mix of local and western bar food, with draught and bottled beers to match with it. They always hold events and promotions, so if you’re a budding regular like myself, than this is bonus.
