Loof-top rendevous

When Jasmeet was in town for a stopover last Tuesday, we (along with Jeremy) decided to pop by and check out Loof. It’s a new rooftop bar at the Odeon Towers Extension, and while I don’t think it’s officially been launched yet, it’s already had its soft launch earlier this month. Saw quite a few acquaintances there, and I hear the place is owned by a friend of a friend (having said that, everyone seems to be a friend of a friend of someone else in Singapore…).

So Jas was suitably impressed by the whole concept of an open-air rooftop bar, which seems to be getting increasingly common here – in his own words, Loof scored a very enthusiastic “5 out of 5! No, make that 11 out of 10!” (If you haven’t already noticed, Math has never been his forte. ;) )

In any case, Loof’s a nice place to kick back and relax, and to just chill out at the end of a long day. It’s not too packed (then again, it was late on a Tuesday when we were there), the music’s decent, and you can carry on a conversation without screaming your lungs out. Only gripe I had was with the menu…I’m sure they could add more drinks and better food.

But yeah, I’d go back there again sometime soon.

    I was there just after the soft launch. My enduring memory is of how humid and sticky it got once it was crowded, as the air was pretty still that night. I wonder how it’s going to attract crowds when the weather turns hot again?

    One can hope they’ll put in more fans or something, to cool the place down faster.

    Yes, I was very impressed, and no… I’m NOT that bad at math. =)

    My gosh. Tym, are you this uber tracker of all events happening in Singapore or so.

    No, no, not all events. For instance, I haven’t been to Ministry of Sound yet :)

    Hi I just went there last night and was looking for comments on Loof. Yah, its very hip and happening, on eve of PH. A very trendy and elegant place. I felt like I was in a Bar in New York or Shanghai. Last night was particularly good because it rained the whole day and only stopped at night, so very cool weather. I wonder wut happens if it rains though- no business for them…

    I hear they have 1-for-1s when it rains…not too sure if that’s true though. And there’s always the air-conditioned sheltered area (albeit small) to retreat to if it starts to pour…
