The Warehouse Hotel

Aug 18, 2017

Once a gritty complex surrounded by illegal distilleries and secret societies, this industrial building has found new life as an industrial-chic 37-key boutique. Artsy paraphernalia referencing the area’s wilder past can be found all over the property and adds a hint of cultural color. Almost every part of this hip hotel proudly flaunts its Singaporean roots, from the furniture to the bar snacks to Po, a destination-worthy restaurant that’s local to the core.
