You can almost imagine sitting in a remote hill-side hill-station barracks in some colonial outpost. Best beer/cider fridge I ever seen in SG, relatively good pxs too considering the peculiarly niche/high-end beers they stock. - BUT sadly, not simple to get to...
Just suggesting it, not as an Eagle's venue, but as a place FTs here should go and experience once, given how completely different it is from the norm..

Colbar - it's a hangover from the British Army days... It's a lot of fun althought the food is a bit hit or miss.


As JR8 says not a place for this meeting I think but an interesting possibility for the future :-)

It would be better for all if we could settle on one or two rotating (?) locations. One, as we have, at Orchard => 'No.5', and then one TBD at the quays...

Here is overview of bars by district:
http://www.hungrygowhere.com/dining-gui ... -21323101/

Drilling down from the above, for the Boat Quay area:
http://www.hungrygowhere.com/dining-gui ... -00323101/

and Clarke/Robertson Quay:
http://www.hungrygowhere.com/dining-gui ... -6c313101/

From the above?:
a) Penny Black at Boat Quay
or
b) Brewerkz at Clarke Quay (Riverside point)

I won't go into my perceived pros/cons of each... they should be pretty apparent anyway :)

p.s. The food at Colbar is really pretty basic, and then some. Like an Asianised version of English school food, c1960s. Lots of spam, and 'Spotted-dick' +custard!!?

Brewerkz - but am perfectly happy with majority opinion.

As there are six confirmed attendees I am sure we will finish with a 50/50 split and still not ahve made a decision.

I think we are, as a group, very well suited to governing a country :wink:

My vote is actually neutral as I don't really care, so that will make it 3/2 split or better. ;-)

Then the decision will have been made. The first suggestion as you voted. ;-)

I like it, better than sitting on a fence all evening if the neutrals are winners. I don't think my hemorrhoids would stand it :oops:
