I never knew this area existed and had walked past it several times on other trips to Singapore. I guess there are two parts to this area - the bars at the bottom of the hill close to Orchard road and then the pretty houses up the hill. I arrived in the morning before the bars opened so the street... More

Instead of a charming street of old shophouses I found an alley of dirty looking bars that looked like a Disney food court from a fake Streets of the World theme park. Don't bother- go to Chinatown around Mosque Street for the real thing- beautifully restored and painted Singapore shophouses!

Restored pre-war Peranakan-style row houses line Emerald Hill with a myriad of cultural influences represented in the architecture. This beautiful street has a tranquility about it along with a colourful colonial feel. Worth a walk down to get away from the bustle of Orchard Road and all its shoppers.

I've always been a fan of Ice Cold Beer & No.5 - they have a wide selection of beers from all over the world, as well as delicious bar snacks to complement your cold drinks. They have quite good happy hour promotions from 5pm onwards.

Emerald Hill Road is worth visiting. Its a grat walk to Orchard Road. Lovely terrace houses. Colourful and a treat in a modern city. A calm and serene place. An oasis in Singapore.

Despite being busy Orchard Road with loads of shopping, this place is upkeep for its heritage and old shop houses. They have been converted to restaurants and shops so very nice for early morning or evening stroll.

just off orchard road near the Somerset station (behind the STB Visitor Center) is a lane filled with happy hour goodness. Pubs and bars lined up the streets here with people having a drink after work. Pretty happening.

This place is up the hill by the Orchard Road near to Centre Point and Somerset MRT. Half of the Peranakan houses already turned into the Bar and food place. Do take a walk up and enjoy the view and try out the traditional food while enjoying the alcoholic drinks here.

From bargain basement foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is something for everyone. For those just browsing, there are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas, as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you amused. Most of the malls are connected by underground walkways, offering a break from the sun on a hot day. Bring a credit card and some comfortable shoes, and plunge into the excitement.
