Spanning across three historic shophouses with an original land lease dating back to the 1800s, Barbary Coast’s dual-concept is now completed with the opening of Barbary Coast Ballroom. A stark contrast to the rustic and casual ambience at Deadfall, Barbary Coast Ballroom boasts lush, opulent interiors with the same quality, warm hospitality and approachably-priced cocktails as downstairs.
Barbary Coast Ballroom explores the other side of the original Barbary Coast’s dichotomy. During the gold rush of 1849, the Barbary Coast district in San Francisco brought a massive population expansion to the area in hopes of finding fortune. The entertainment scene was filled with jazz clubs and dance halls, and, on the upper end, ballrooms for the most discerning of patrons.
Unlike anything other in the Boat Quay neighbourhood, Barbary Coast Ballroom is beautifully designed to feel modern yet historically accurate and nostalgic. The venue, completed with lavish chandeliers and vintage furniture naturally invites guests to wander around the space, discovering hidden surprises in each room.
But it’s not just about décor, cocktails are a great deal here at Barbary Coast Ballroom, with a selection of thoughtful and creative drinks suited to all taste. Highlights include the bitter and exotic Three Graces (S$22++) with Sage Pisco Encanto, Fernet Hunter, a Madagascan vanilla acid blend and rhubarb bitters, and the smoky but savoury Tommy Tomate (S$22++) with tomato infused Mezcal Vida, kaffir agave and lime. In contrasts to the casual comfort food downstairs, Barbary Coast Ballroom offers high-end bites such as Cheese & Charcuterie boards (ranging from S$50++ for Petitue up to $145 for La Grand Dame) and Oysters Rockefeller baked with furikake, dashi, kombu butter, togarashi and spring onion (S$18++ for three).
