The Brand’s Southeast Asian Debut Brings Together the Very Best in Hospitality, Cuisine, Design and Art in the City’s Most Exciting Neighbourhood.
The Mondrian era begins in the Lion City with the opening of Mondrian Singapore Duxton, the brand’s southeast Asian debut. Injecting its signature blend of art, glamour, and culinary flair into the vibrant neighbourhood of Duxton Hill, Mondrian Singapore Duxton rises above the historic and colourful Chinatown shophouses, with sweeping views of the glittering cityscape. A stone’s throw from the Central Business District, the hotel invites travellers and locals alike to explore the surrounding area and relax in its 302 guestrooms and shophouse suites, cinematic rooftop pool and four electric restaurants and bars.
Inviting the dreamers, artists, rebels and free-thinkers to experience their new spiritual home, Singapore’s newest hospitality concept provides a gateway to all that the city’s chic, art-forward Duxton district has to offer. Guests have the chance to meet a team of ‘unexpected talents’; Mondrian’s charming all-star cast of iconoclasts and change-makers from across the fields of hospitality, cuisine, design, fashion, nightlife, and art, who are dedicated to delivering hospitality unlike any other. They are the hosts and guides to all that Mondrian and Duxton Hill have to offer, as guests relax, get inspired and prepare to explore a world of design, art, fashion and sheer cool.
Designed by Los Angeles-based hotshop Studio Carter, the resort draws inspiration from the heritage conservation area’s unconventional architecture and rich melting pot of culture, offering a feeling of ‘deconstructed shophouse chic’. Guests will know that they’ve arrived somewhere special as they realise a bustling restaurant and bar has replaced the traditional lobby. Head out and explore the Duxton neighbourhood’s barista cafes, Michelin-starred eateries, in-the-know bars, avant-garde galleries and independent boutiques.
Mondrian is a food- and fashion-forward culinary destination designed to be enjoyed by both locals and international travellers. A restaurant, cocktail bar, café and rooftop restaurant and bar combine historic architecture from Singapore’s centuries-old shophouses with a new build of modern, contemporary influences.
The world’s greatest butcher, Dario Cecchini, presides over the flagship dining experience, Bottega di Carna, a modern Italian eatery with a rebellious spin and a touch of Tuscany. Executive Chef Alastair Clayton and Chef de Cuisine Kenny Huang and their dream team add theatre in the open kitchen and prime cuts of the finest meats hang like jewels in display cases.
Accessed by a secret tunnel and celebrating the ultra-vibrancy and wild nature of Southeast Asia, Jungle Ballroom is a tropical cocktail bar rooted in the region’s rich bounty that pulses with lucid glamour. A place where cocktails creative and classic meet adventures in mixology, served from a sunken lava stone bar amid glimpses of the lush jungle outside.
Christina’s offers a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city by day serving coffee from award-winning baristas. By night the space transforms into a devoted wine, cocktail and sharing plates haven, made with love and partnerships with some of Singapore’s best local artisans. It is just the place to plot your business revolution or creative coup.
The Rooftop Bar and Poolside Cabanas transport guests to the glitz and glamour of 1970s Hollywood at Canyon Club, surrounded by the sweeping cinematic views of the glittering Singapore skyline. Fresh, seafood-forward dishes and colourful crafted cocktails are the highlights of this California-inspired menu.
From the original Mondrian located in the heart of Los Angeles’ strip to properties in New York, Miami, London, Cannes, Doha and Seoul, the brand has always been about transforming and defining the neighbourhoods in which they are found. Since its launch in LA in 1996, Mondrian Hotels have been brought to life by the quality of their people and a commitment to creativity, art and the unexpected.
General Manager, maverick and all-round mischief-maker Robert C. Hauck and his team can’t wait to welcome guests to the world of Mondrian. As Hauck says: “I see Mondrian becoming the beating heart of this extraordinary city, a catalyst to forge connections with like-minded people, innovators and the wild at heart.”
As an introductory offer, guests can enjoy 30% off the best available rate, complimentary breakfast, guaranteed late checkout and $30 (appx. £24) Mondrian credit to use at the hotel’s bars and restaurants when booking directly from here.
