Parkview Square is a building you won't miss. With its granite and bronze facade, and flamboyant architectural details, the Neo Art Deco-inspired building towers over the modern buildings in the Bugis area. Yes, it's that "Batman building" or "Gotham building" with the open plaza that has lots of scultpures and statues in it.
Many would also know of its lobby and Divine bar, done up with lots of ornamentation and an opulent look. But soon to be launched in the place of Divine, is Atlas — expect a sophisticated all-day drinking and dining destination, in a unique Art Deco environment. The space has a ceiling height of 15m and a statement-making three-storey high chiller.
The food and drink offerings will also compel you to visit. Whether it is a light lunch, afternoon tea, dinner or bar food late at night, the kitchen, helmed by executive chef Daniele Sperindio (formerly of Open Door Policy and Open Farm Community), will whip up European culinary delights.
Atlas will offer the world's most diverse collection of gin — curated by Master of Gin, Jason Williams — including everything from 1910 London dry gins to modern craft gins from across the globe. Guests can also enjoy fine Champagne, some of which have been personally selected from the cellar of the Parkview Square owners. Head bartender Roman Foltan will also concoct Art Deco-inspired cocktails, while maitre d' Carla Davina Soares will ensure you and your friends will be well looked after. The duo join Atlas from award-winning Artesian cocktail bar at The Langham in London.
