An impressive and luxurious colonial-style hotel, the Raffles Hotel boasts a history legendary. Like that of the Bar & Billiard Room (BBR) inside, recently reinterpreted in a contemporary key, both from a design and a gastronomic point of view. For the new indoor and outdoor spaces of Osteria BBR, whose kitchen was entrusted to the famous chef Alain Ducasse, furnishings made in Italy signed Pedrali.
The legendary history of the hotel...
Founded by the Sarkies brothers, hoteliers of Armenian origin, in 1887, the Raffles Hotel takes its name from the British statesman Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, founder of modern Singapore.
With its colonial style, the majestic hotel with its cinematic and tropical charm immediately established an unparalleled standard for luxury hospitality, and still confirms its primacy by enchanting its customers with meaningful experiences and a courteous, welcoming and at the same time impeccable service.
... and the Bar & Billiard Room inside
Founded in 1896, the iconic Bar & Billiard Room (BBR) recently inaugurated a new chapter in its glorious history within Singapore's Raffles. The modern and lively concept of Osteria BBR combines the deep passion of the starred chef Alain Ducasse for the gastronomic heritage of the Italian Riviera - revisited in its own way - with in and outdoor environments with a refined design, made in Italy of course.
The interior design project
For the new BBR, the study Jouin Manku, who oversaw the interior design project, created contemporary environments that respect colonial architecture, while take guests on a sensory journey towards the sea, the light, flavors and aromas - unexpectedly - of the Mediterranean.
Light and bright, the interior spaces are warmed by the lively and at the same time elegant tones that characterize the armchairs with sinuous shapes and the stools padded from the Ester, designed by Patrick Jouin for Pedrali, placed around to the open kitchen.
