I was shocked to see the quantity which was not a double shot actually it... More

We just arrived and thought we would have a quiet drink!! Ha ha we found a bar that played 80s music and my wife just loves 80s music so we stayed. Was really cool and the staff were lovely. No finger pointing here!!!

Very bad experience after we complained about the bad service we received. The manager came and accused us, accosted us, and even pointed his middle fingers at me and my group for no reason. This is after we bought a bottle. Subsequent attempts to report this terrible incident to their management went unanswered. A post on their Facebook regarding this... More

Well this is my bad experience. The place indeed looks very glamourous and posh. We came here to have drinks with a party of 3. Speak about patience, We've been waiting for 45 minutes and asked the staff 3 times would our drinks be arriving. Eventually we went to district 10 where were attended and served right away.

After spending the day sightseeing on the open top buses we got off at Suntec City and discovered Balaclava Bar at 5pm We sank into the comfortable lounges in the cool air conditioning and enjoyed a gin and tonic or two. A lovely way to relax and the happy hour prices were very good as drinks are very expensive in... More

We loved the glitzy interior, and found it a good place to relax. We sat outside for a while, but I was attracted by the interior. Good service, had snack chef came and had a chat very friendly. I liked the atmosphere.

We have met here with colleagues a few times after work. We don't like the way Happy Hour is managed. It is a 2 for 1 offer but you have to have both drinks together after 6. Which means your second drink gets warm. They also insist on settling for each drinks round rather than setting up a tab. They... More

The inside is a gin palace, very glitzy, plush purple sofas... outside in the plaza area it's perching tables. Small plates of food were quite good. The English bitter was served much too cold but was fresh. My friend's bottled beers were the right temperature. Small plates of food were nice enough, not special. Service was reasonably prompt for Singapore,... More

Overall deco is very grand, however it's has lost the touch of the old Balaclava before. Extremely small area, doesn't really permit large groups to sit together as the seating is very limited. Prices of drinks are standard. Didn't try the food. Can go once, not recommended for repeated.

BALACLAVA was an institution of sorts when it was in Suntec City for over 10 years from 2000 to 2010. It found a temporary residence in ION Orchard from 2010 to 2014; then took at sabbatical until now. On September 1st, the iconic BALACLAVA will return to Suntec City again where it will continue to defy convention by marrying comfort and luxury, with great drinks and eats, and an energetic vibe. In keeping with tradition, as one would wind down the day, BALACLAVA will be the place to let your hair down, live a little and party a lot.
