This week Reuben and Aiken Chia tour yet another shophouse space, although this time located in the hip Ann Siang enclave. Named HONCHO, it’s a lifestyle venue that is set over 3 levels, each with its own distinct personality, a restaurant, lounge, and rooftop bar. Starting from the ground level, Social@HONCHO is meant to be a place for more intimate conversations, with the cove lights over the bar.
The next level houses the restaurant, a Japanese izakaya offering omakase, sashimi and sushi rolls, and various starters and main dishes. Finally, the rooftop bar named Jo offers a lovely view over the area, with local craft beers the main highlight to really enjoy as night falls.
