Aside from being known for its eclectic mix of cuisines ranging from hawker-casual to 5-star star elegance, Singapore is probably most well known for shopping.
While the “crazy rich” amongst us might head to Orchard Road or the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, others look for gems in Little India, Chinatown or Kampong Glam. Expats, in particular, seem to love a day of retail therapy at Cluny Court – and for good reason!
This charming spot, opposite the Botanic Gardens, is perfect for shoppers who get overwhelmed in SG’s often mega-sized malls, yet still like to find everything under one roof. Even the roof of Cluny Court is special, as the mall is set in a lovely heritage building.
Check out our “The Finder Goes Shopping” video, below, to see it for yourself. Then, flip through the gallery to plan your day out at this special shopping centre.

6 Cafes Near The Singapore Botanic Gardens You’ll Want To Plan Your Next Brunch At
If you’re a mum-to-be or new parent, Cluny Court has got you covered. Find stylish options – including maternity wear and non-mumsy clothes to rev up your post-baby wardrobe – at Change Lingerie, Rosalie Pompon, Simone Irani and other shops.
For your little ones, both The Elly Store and Hopla! Kids Shoe Shop carry adorable, well-made clothes and shoes (exclusively, at the latter) and more. Treat them to a toy at Groovy Gifts, if they’ve “been good” during your shopping trip. Bonus: It’s great for kids’ party decor and favours, too!
There’s nothing like a serious shopping session to work up an appetite! On second thought, Cluny Court’s eateries are so enticing, it’s perfectly acceptable to just go there for the food. (Take these excellent brunch options, for example.)
Beyond delicious eateries like Gastronomia Da Paolo, Relish by Wild Rocket and SPRMRKT, there are gourmet grocers including The Fishwives and Cold Storage. If you’re feeling a bit parched, pop into Thirsty Craft Beer Shop or EGA Juice Clinic. Want something sweet? Head straight to Plain Vanilla and The Affogato Bar on Level 1!

Another reason why you might as well block out your whole day at Cluny Court? It has a bevy of pampering services: for hair (The Big Blow, The Hair Lounge and other trusted salons), nails (The Room by nailbar @ Cluny), skin (Sugar K Organic Peel Bar) and even teeth (Cluny Court Family Dental).
Plus, you can work on your body and soul at Lyaya by FJ (for Vinyasa yoga), drop off your dry cleaning at Jeeves or brighten someone’s day (your own, perhaps?) with a beautiful bouquet from Girl O’ Girl florist.
Before or after you head to Cluny Court, go over to the Singapore Botanic Gardens to stop and smell the flowers. (The renovated Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden will surely make your kiddos jump for joy.)
