New year, fresh vibes, and a great time to try something new? You bet. As we prepare to welcome the Year of the Water Tiger, how about indulging in something a little different for a fresher, brighter and huat-er 2022? For stylish CNY outfits with a bohemian bent that you can’t find anywhere else in Singapore, reunion lunches and dinners with a novel twist and whimsical finds to spruce up your abode, look no further than Tanglin Mall, the centrally-located shopping spot that serves up an eclectic and interesting mix of lifestyle stores and F&B options.
Besides warm and familiar favourites such as like PAUL and Starbucks, there are some new names to look out for come late January — Wine Connection Bistro will open in time for you to toast to 2022, and for those who’ve made new year’s resolutions to eat and live more healthily can get fresh food quick at Poke Theory or visit Scoop Wholefoods Australia for healthy produce at affordable prices. Caffe Beviamo will also reopen in early February with a refreshed look after renovation.
Shoppers can also expect more convenience with Unity, as well as stores like Hysses, Mister Minit and Boost Juice, which have returned to Tanglin Mall with fresh new looks. For even more newness to bring in the huat, Tanglin Mall has also refreshed and rejuvenated its interiors, and has a slew of new tenants, along with roar-some Chinese New Year promotions to help you have an auspicious and grrr-eat year ahead.
