Add a Point to the Map

The Forbidden City's Bar Cocoon and Bamboo Bar both allow its patrons to retreat into a different era altogether. It is branch of the successful Indochine, a household name for bars, restaurants and clubs inspired by Indochina and the Orient.

An opulent enclave in its own right, Bar Cocoon impresses patrons with its sensual interiors. Think chandeliers, dark drapes and statues. Adding to that is a hand-sculpted ice bar, the largest and coldest in Singapore. Most patrons come in groups and retreat to their booths, or 'cocoon', for lack of better word.

Bamboo Bar is an extension alfresco area of Bar Cocoon. One of its two areas overlook the scenic Singapore River.

Its Ladies Night every Wednesday offers 1 for 1 specials for the fairer sex from 7pm onwards. No stranger to the music scene, The Forbidden City plays host to artistes such as Felix Da Housecat and Anthony Nero. A live band plays rock, soul and fusion tunes every Saturday from 10pm.
