If you often patronise (or are at least a fan) of Overeasy, Tanjong Beach club, The White Rabbit and The Warehouse hotel, then you have to check out this hotly anticipated fiesta come 29 May. As one of Singapore’s front runners in all things hospitality and design-driven F&B spaces, The Lo & Behold Group will be staging its inaugural month-long festival that will last until 25 June.
The festival will be headlined by seven events every weekend at the company’s most popular establishments (read: the places mentioned above) with an aim to encourage overworked adults to take a break. Here we give you a rundown on what to expect.
