Christmas in CHIJMES

CHIJMES may be over 150 years old, but the grand old dame is looking better than ever with a new-and-improved façade, where part of the boundary wall along Victoria Street has been lowered. The driveway has been refurbished and there’s now a beautiful glass ceiling at the front porch to provide shelter on rainy days. If you haven’t visited in a while, the holiday season is the perfect time to return, as its range of exquisite F&B establishments put out a smorgasbord of festive offerings. Besides, there’s nowhere quite like a former chapel to soak-up the Christmas spirit while you chill out, have fun and enjoy an intimate get-together with family and friends.

This is no place for light bites: Carnivore’s got meat, and lots of it. One of the best options is the delicious 
beef tenderloin with bacon, but if beef’s not really your thing, try any of the 13 other rotisserie-roasted items available, like the succulent chicken heart and lamb leg. There’s also fish, as well as fresh greens at the salad bar, when your taste buds need a break from all that meat.
