If you don't have any travel plans and are running out of ideas to entertain yourself, check out this new gastrobar at Orchard Gateway with a gaming cafe next door.

Opened earlier in January 2021, 82soho first launched Kommune, which is essentially a LAN (local area network) shop that also offers game consoles, board games, and card games.

82Soho is now launching a Korean fusion gastrobar named Tigress —  right next door, and had its soft opening on Dec. 16.

Tropical urban jungle theme

Even if your significant other and friends are not gamers, Tigress has got your back.

The gastrobar boasts a tropical urban jungle aesthetic with wood and rattan accents, complete with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that allow natural sunlight to enter.

The gastrobar also has three pocket-pool tables and a Korean four-ball pool table if you wish to flex your billiard skills.

Burgers and tapas

After taking a gazillion pictures, it's time to satisfy those growling tummies.

While their full menu remains in the works, their pre-opening menu spotlights the Japanese Wagyu fat-infused beef burgers.

The Tigress (S$34) comprises Australian Wagyu, Parma ham, blue cheese, tomato, caramelised onion, pickles, and house sauce.

They also serve tapas such as Burrata & Truffle Mushrooms (S$16) and Foie Gras & Caviar Crostini (S$15) as well as milkshakes (S$12).

Of course, you can't leave without having a drink at a gastrobar.

Introducing the White Tigress (S$18) cocktail, a blend of coconut and citrus with a vodka base that is said to taste "sweet and rounded like a creamy dessert".

For desserts, they offer Oroma's artisan tea gelato (S$4.50 per scoop), including a yuja tea flavour that is exclusive to Tigress named Golden Tigress.

PlayStation, PC games, board games

Regardless of what sort of entertainment you seek, you'd be spoilt for choices at Kommune.

Game console fans can enjoy their PlayStation 5 (PS5) consoles in private rooms.

With 30 games to choose from, gamers can challenge each other in multiplayer games such as "Overcooked" and "FIFA 21" or chill out alone on single-player games such as "Assasin's Creed" and "Final Fantasy VII".
