No yellow boxes here

The Pump Room, Clarke QuayIt had been awhile since we’ve gone out after work with friends, and for some reason, we said yes to an invitation to go out to a club / pub / oneofthoseplaces.

Clarke Quay on a Friday night was always expected to be crowded, with MOS drawing their usual clientele who appear to spend more time in the queue than in the club proper.

But there’s a new place on Clarke Quay that’s really worth a visit, especially if you’re a non-smoker. As a sign of things to come, The Pump Room is a no-smoking zone, which might seem a bit strange, especially if you’re a smoker like myself.

But you know what? I didn’t end up going outside to light up several times as I expected myself to. Maybe it was because the best cover band in Singapore (Jive Talking) was playing the best set I’ve heard since the last time I saw them play at Bar None.

Or maybe it was the decor, which really is quite nice – we sat at tables made of solid wood, and there were those funky optic fibre lights, pillars coated with what the manager tells us is the same material they use to make MRT seats. Which is really good to know, because if you end up with your butt against the pillar, it’ll at least be a familiar tactile experience. Or something.

Check it out here if you haven’t the time to get your ass to Clarke Quay. But you really should, lah.

iTunes is playing an illegal copy of House of Rising Sun from the album “Romantic Collection Vol. 1” by Animals of which I have the original CD.
