Shortlisted: FBEYE International for the Bar/Club/Lounge Award

design et al are delighted to announce further shortlist success for FBEYE International in the International Hotel & Property Awards 2014. The Westin Hotel, Singapore has been shortlisted for the Bar/Club/Lounge Award.


Accessed via a broad staircase from the spectacular 32nd floor lobby of the Westin Hotel, Singapore, the gastro bar ‘Cook and Brew’ exudes an old-school gentleman’s club vibe, albeit with a modern thread of relaxed-luxe.


Taking advantage of its elevated perch, the expansive space offers superb views through the floor to ceiling glass on two sides- with an outlook that encompasses the nearby coastline and city’s prestigious skyline.


Taking its cue from perennially popular gastropubs, replete with warm timber paneling, a long black marble-topped bar, luxurious leather sofas and armchairs on unpolished handscrapped recycled wooden floors, the bar exhibits the relaxed ambience of a traditional pub in a contemporary iteration.


In addition to the spacious main bar and lounge area, a separate dining section occupies the far corner of the floorspace, featuring a plush full length black leather tufted banquette combined with traditional timber dining chairs. The abundance of natural light offsets magnificent views rounding off the gastronomic experience with sensory delights. The bar is not just another hotel bar for in-house guests, but an enticing drinks and dining destination in its own right.
