Singapore - Dempsey Hill

Dempsey Hill is a new lifestyle hub converted from a group of old army barracks. These barracks used to be occupied by the British Army, and later on were used by the Singapore military as a place where young Singaporean men report for their compulsory National Service.  Located just off Holland Road, it is quite easily accessible. The old barracks and buildings have been renovated to accommodate restaurants, bars, galleries, spas and gourmet shops. 

While not much has been done to spruce up the utilitarian buildings, the large spans and high roofs lend themselves very well to the new functions. The relatively untouched structures also give out an air of authenticity. This, coupled with the generous green open spaces, makes Dempsey Hill the perfect escape for a lazy weekend in Singapore.

The rugby field is still open for games.

An old chapel converted into a restaurant called The White Rabbit.

Another restaurant in an old building - Au Petit Salut. I've heard good things about this French bistro. Must try it one day.

This is the St. George's Chapel at Dempsey Hill.
