Raffles Hotel Singapore officially re-opened its in 2019 after a massive two-year renovation. While the conserved building’s shell has been kept intact, including its stark white colour, much has changed within the expansive hotel in terms of shopping and dining experiences.
When it comes to restaurants, popular restaurants like The Halia, Royal Blue China and BBR by Alain Ducasse have exited the building for good. But the good news is that the hotel has revitalised its offerings by including interesting new concepts, some of which are from the biggest names in the culinary universe.
Popular London joint Burger & Lobster, which opened its first outlet in Jewel, has expanded its reach with a bigger branch at the hotel. Its main draw? Accessible location, a more elegant vibe fitting of the hotel’s reputation and an expanded menu comprising of exclusive dishes and signatures.
