Delicious food and refreshing drinks form the cornerstone for a nice day out, but an eye-pleasing environment rounds out this combination and hits the ultimate trifecta of chill — especially when in the presence of good company. There’s also something to be said for the thrill to be derived from these moments when everything aligns perfectly, even more so if you’re big on sharing them with an audience online. Here are some places we find particularly ‘grammable in Singapore.
Amidst a cluster of industrial buildings in the Paya Lebar area, Alchemist quietly resides on the ground floor of a former biscuit factory gazetted for conservation in 2005. Its original façade has been carefully preserved, so you can see the café’s neon signage peek out shyly from behind the factory’s original signboard and intricately painted gates. On the inside, Alchemist’s décor boasts a minimalist aesthetic, with a deep marine counter rising up from concrete floors accented with vintage tiling; a holdover from the landlord’s rich heritage. Take a snap of your flat white’s #latteart before sipping on it, or step outside and pose for your #OOTD at the entrance — this wedge-shaped structure channels major Flatiron Building vibes.
