The interior design balances the raw beauty of the old barracks with rich, and inviting touches that hint at the diverse exoticism of the Asian region, such as the 88 birdcage lights that hang moodily above the large island bar and central atrium. "We wanted the mood of Tigerlily to be warm, cosy, and to evoke a sort of distressed elegance that means the space will actually get better with age" says, Alistair Christie, Co-owner. 

Interior Inspired by Old Barrock and Asian Fusion

Although Tigerlily is very much a bar, its food transcends your average bar bites, with dishes heavily influenced by Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese cuisines. Dishes are offered at S$8-S$18.  Informality is key, with the size, and price of dishes created for fun, interactive sharing, and last orders at 11.45pm nightly. "We wanted to give people a sense of familiarity from our regional Asian bar bites, and not to challenge them too much with any sort of overly pretentious fusion cuisine" says, Chef Patrick Tan, Group Head Chef.
