Here’s the lowdown on what this super fan loves about Guoco Tower, in his own words.
Ah Lock & Co.
"Other than your usual hawker fare, most other takeaways in the CBD are western fare. What I really like about Ah Lock is how unique it is—l love how they’ve modernised their take on the Hakka dish."
“The food at Ah Lock tastes really good, and there’re very few places that serve heartland fare the way they do it. I recommend getting their Hakka Tofu Rice Bowl (with lots of chilli!) and trying their charcoal and coconut Min Jiang Kueh.”
“Starbucks encourages customers to think about the environment by giving a discount when they bring their own Starbucks mug. They’re not afraid to stand by their values, and the causes they champion like sustainability and diversity."
"Starbucks’ commitment to social causes and the environment makes it a brand whose values I resonate with.”
“Getting active near your workplace is a great way to achieve your fitness goals, especially for busy executives. Virgin Active literally a few floors down, making it super easy to stick to my fitness plans.”
“Virgin Active’s Body Balance happens every Saturday morning at the Urban Park. It feels wonderfully surreal to be working out at a green space in the heart of the city!”
1864 - The Bar
“As someone who appreciates cocktails and gin, I was thrilled to discover the 1864 Lobby Bar at Sofitel Singapore City Centre. It’s a great spot to unwind whenever I need a drink or two.”
“Singletons like me tend to spend our weekends on household chores—Ironing in particular is something I really dislike doing. Laundrymart helps me to outsource these chores so that I have more time for my hobbies.”
“Laundrymart has an automated system that allows me to collect my neatly-pressed laundry anytime of the day, 24/7. It’s got a fast turnaround time and attractive discounts for Guoco Tower tenants to boot!”
“The Urban Park provides workers in the vicinity with a green oasis when they need a break and some fresh air.”
“Guoco Tower has brought so much vibrancy to the area with its Urban Park, fitness events and cultural activities. It’s done a great job of transforming and elevating the image of Tanjong Pagar.”
