Chijmes is one of the best places I visited in Singapore. The atmosphere is relaxed, chilled, and perfect for those hot nights when you want to sip mojitos and enjoy good food. So many restaurant choices to chose from and the architecture is stunning with a beautiful massive church in the front. I could easily return to singapore just for... More

Inside this building, you'll see varieties of pub, cafes and restaurants. Nice place to hangout with friends after work. Cozy place. Many choices of dishes. Worth to spend time there

This is still a place with nice restaurants. But it looks like since a couple of years (even after the recent upgrade) it had lost his glamor. It's not that busy as a couple of years ago

Lots of resteraunts, bars and cafes so plenty of choice. Really nice atmosphere and lovely setting. A walk around in the daytime allows you to admire the gardens and the buildings. Nighttime is lively and entertaining.

Such a cute little spot for dinner! Chijmes is an old historic building that was originally a convent built in the early 1900s. Today, it’s been retrofitted to house restaurants, shops, as well as serve as a venue for various entertainment purposes. I liked it in the evening more because the lights gave it a really warm and cozy environment... More

Beautiful setting of restaurants next to a church. Slightly above average price wise, but worth it just for the location Would definitely go back there if we returned to Singapore

Originally a monastery, bombed by the Japanese during the war. It was being used as an orphanage. A wedding reception in process so I didn't get to go all the way in. Absolutely beautiful. Across from Carlton hotel.
